Geek Alert: What a day of skiing looks like on a Garmin training GPS.

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.
