So last Thursday I went skiing by myself up at Flagstaff. I left around 6am, got some demo skis in Flag that I wanted to try out and was on one of the first lift chairs at 9am. With one and a half McDonald’s breakfast burritos in my jacket pocket, I was ready to go. I turned on my Garmin, skied my ass off for four and half hours without stopping and was ready to leave the hill by 1:30pm. This is the data I got after syncing my Garmin:
First, the elevation change; from this, you can see that I did 12 runs from the top (Agassiz Chair):
And now the rest of it. Looks like I averaged 4 mph on the lift and 25 to 30 mph on the way down, with a top speed of 33.6 mph. Cool or what?
I even hit almost all the runs, including the bumps! Though I still suck at bumps.
