I took my Garmin Edge 305 up to Solitude with me today, just to see where all I skied on a topo map, as well as to keep track of how far I actually skied.
Now, signal quality was poor, because I had the GPS in a sleeve pocket, instead of out in the open, but it should still give a pretty good idea of what I did.
According to Motionbased.com, I did about 9750 feet of vertical ascent (just about all on a lift, of course), covering 6.3 miles. According to the lfit data from Solitude, I had about 10,145 feet of vertical ascent.
On descents and flat, I did about 9.9 miles … I always wondered how long runs were; and how much a given day of skiing would have. Today was actually a short day as well, since I’ve been battling a cold for the past several days … but it was so beautiful, I just had to get outside; despite the cold.
Two runs through Honeycomb Canyon, and I actually managed to make some turns in powder. And I felt like I had more control on the groomers as well … only a minor problem with my right boot pain-wise; two runs, then take of the boot, put it back on, and no more problems! I guess they’re finally starting to break in; although I still think I may need to get a minor shell stretch around the pinky toe area.
