# Rate you ski ability now!!

Take this test:

Quote:
Something was later suggested for those with no competition experience, so you don't divide by zero--if you have no points or results, take a skier who you've skied with who does have results or points in a discipline you might be involved in, and estimate your own ability as a percentage of theirs. Then take the points that the skier you're comparing yourself to would have received in that last step, multiply by the percent (as a decimal), and add the result to your own number. So if you've skied with someone who has 90 FIS points, and you think you're 70% the racer (or bump skier, or whatever) he is, then you take .75 of his points (since that's what you do with FIS points in this formula), put 100 over that number, and multiply the result by your number.

Doh! Whoops. Sorry. -0.113
Still wrong!! You get one more try and then we dock you a few points.
Is this the new math? I've heard about the new math, but I haven't seen it until now.

Wow! It looks really difficult. :
how about a simple "i'm not worthy"?

Really? See, if that's really what you got, it shows the problem with this formula. There's too wide a range.

You too?
Ahhhh... Pete.

An idle mind is a terrible thing to engage.

Just for fun:

(100)*(1+1)*(.6)*(32)= 4128

(4128)*(1)= 4128

(4128)+(4 - so sue me, I didn't have a ruler)= 4132

(4132)*(52+100)= 628,064

(40 FIS)*(.6)= 24

100/24= 4.166

(628,064)*(4.166)= 2,616,514.6

2,616,514.6

On a scale where 500,000,000 is "expert", I rated pretty low.

By the way, the steepness factor is out of whack. If I had lied and said that the steepest thing I've ever skied is Corbet's to Downill Chute to Gros Ventre at Jackson Hole, which has an average pitch of 27 degrees and vertical drop of 4,139, my final result would have been 71,713,157 instead of 2,616,514.

To get a meaningful result?

Throw the whole thing out and ask your 'bro to rate you, duuuude.

But my bro says I totally rip, dude, but I don't believe him because he might be stoned!

From now on the steepness length has a max. of 1000'
Dude, like where's my car?
I got 50 billion (and that's old style billion, not your poofy- limp-wristed Thousand Million)

Anyway, what's the point on rating yourself, unles this is a "who can p!ss up the wall highest contest"
I'm not here to compete, I'm here to have fun, and by that standing, I am a winner.
