I skied 100 straight days one year. It was 1999 and I was on Ski/Security patrol much of that time.

Skiing the same yello Lange TII's every year since 1988.

Same poles, same gaiter since 1988. Same goggles since 1992. Been tracking vertical since 1989. Those are kind of boring streaks compared to the skiing since 1959 one, tho. My seasons-in-a-row only go back to 1988.

Wait a minute. What are we talking about here?

My streak is that I really don't have any particular streak worth mentioning since I started skiing.

Shouldn't be too hard to keep this one up.

Nice going 4ster. You must have good genes and fine spirit. For me it's been every year since 1967, all while based in the unconventional skiing realm of Virginia.
Another streak associated with the social side of skiing that just ended for me: as a recreational skier from 1987 until Feb of 2007 I never went skiing alone; that is, never traveled to a ski area alone with the intent to ski alone. Always brought or met friends and/or family, and since the early 1990s that has meant almost always bringing along one or more of my four kids and wife. Finally broke this streak on a quiet solo daytrip this past Feb, where I wound-up befriending a nice stranger anyway and skied with him for much of the day: http://www.dcski.com/articles/view_article.php?article_id=979&mode=search

A high school buddy of mine and I have met for two weekdays of skiing at the same place every year for the last 20 years.

At one time I skied on the same boot, ski, binding, poles combination for 18 years straight. Not any more, I've now joined the consumer heard.

I've skied every year since 1963.

I piss my wife off with at least one too many ski trips - every single year, dating back to 1985. I'm so ashamed of myself.

Does being a gaper, body and soul, for 40 straight seasons count?

At least you did/do it!
I made a new years resolution to do one last year. I did do a 180, but only because it was a failed attempt at a 360.

For the past 6 years I've had 40+ days. The last 2 have been 50+ days.

What was worse:
Losing the debate over Pre skis, or actually having to ski Blue?

The streak that I've kept is getting someone involved in the sport every year. My real goal is to get the moms of the kids in the school ski program involved and on the slopes with their kids. This is not always possible, but I can happily say that I've encouraged at least one person a season to take up the sport.

150 days straight last year it was just easier to look back and see when the last time i didnt skis was
post #17 of 38
Not much of a streak... 40+ days for 8 seasons now, with a few seasons in the 70+ range.

The one I am most greatful for though: 13 seasons skiing like I do without a season ending injury or other serious dammage/injuries - and I still have both ACL's, both MCL's and all of the cartilage left in both knees. [I did get half of an LCL a few years ago though]

I've averaged 100+ days a year since 1970 except for the year I blew out my Achilles on the third day of skiing.

I've skied some every year since 1945.
post #21 of 38
I know this guy. I run into him at my home mountain. He's skied 20 plus yrs. Last time I saw him he was working on a 100+ day ayear 5 yr streak plus he had skied at least 1 day a month for 50+ months. What makes this amazing is that this guy is a total arm waving,backseating,stemturning stuck intermediate . Thats got to be some kinda record.

Calling you a skier seems like an understatement.

I wish there were an emoticon for bowing down to someone...

because I do to you!

1945!

That is incredible. Way to go and well played, Kneale.

By the way, Greg...

Are you SURE you have all your knee cartilage?

They have a way of sneaking up on you as the years go by.

In 2004, I met Mike, the raindeer, in SilverStar. Mike had raindeer bells tied on to his poles when he ski. I skied with him for about 4 hours. Mike was 90 and lives near Sliverstar, he has been skiing when he was 5 and used to be a racer. Now a days, he only ski on the groomed runs, every day from 9 to about 1.

Thank you for that reminder. He had the biggest gaper smile on the whole time, I know he'll be back this year.

Looks a little "backseat" to me. Maybe he should lower the hands some.:
