Skiing One Million Vertical Feet

By Eric_Gieszl on April 7, 2008 | No Comments Comments

If I've been missing in action on Ultimate Rollercoaster lately its because of other activities that I enjoy.

In December I decided that I was going to count how much vertical feet I would ski this winter. After the first five days of skiing in the end of December I decided to set a goal to ski one million vertical feet this season and I surpassed that goal on March 23, 2008 my 37th day. In total, I skied 1,034,692 vertical feet in 38 days.

To ski that I had to ride 676 ski lifts at Snowmass, Buttermilk, Telluride and Crested Butte ski areas.

My single best day was March 20, 2008 when I skied 53,748 vertical feet at Snowmass Ski Area in Colorado and rode 35 ski lifts that day.

More than 1/5 of my vertical was skied on the Big Burn chair at Snowmass - 117 rides for 233,181 vertical feet.

Now that winter is over its time to refocus the attention back to roller coasters and theme parks.
