Well its now 11 and 6 of those are teaching days ......but on my work days I still get a min of 15,000 vert in. IN fact one day when it was good and my kids parents came at 3:10, I got roughly 32,000 feet in one day and I worked 6 hours that day.
Here is how it works there are three trams that go before 9am most mornings. that right these is 8,700 feet. Work kinderbirds and get off at 3:10 catch the next tram at 3:15. Each tram goes of at 7.5 min intervals. Yes it is very hard to to catch each one but its possible if you can manage fast speeds in rough snow. S0 5 tram rides(14,500 feet of vert) before that lift closes. Then you head over to Peruvian Express you will get up that twice. another 5200 feet of vert. Then you head over to Wilbere Chair which closes at 4:30, you will get there around 4:03 wilbere 7 min to get up 1min to get down so 3 more runs at 1000feet a piece gets you another 3,000 vertical feet grand total for more the day. 31,400 vertical feet more than most tourist manage in a day here.
I get what you getting at but I am not the normal lets go drink all night ski teacher, I am here to ski, and if I didnt get to ski that much in my days working I wouldnt instruct. I like teaching but I have allways been a skier first teacher second.
