NEWS FLASH VI (Ski Results Update)

It’s winter on our mountains…

Skiing has now started for the 2022/2023 season and it is time to give an interim summary of results… (to the end of December 2022)

Just a reminder about the codes/terms:
Runs = the number of times down the hill (no matter how long it takes)
Vm’s = this relates to the number of vertical metres skied from the top of each run to the ski lift (this is not to be confused with the amount of snow that is covered which will be reported as Distance) – different runs may have quite different configurations, but the Vm will be the same.
Avg-Max: each day one’s maximum speed achieved on the fastest run is recorded – the average of these speeds is computed by totalling the speeds and dividing by the number of days
Distance = this is the amount of ground that is covered (much like when recording bicycle travel or jogging or swimming) and each run can have varying distance depending on how a skier traverses it. For example, Grandfather’s Run is 5 km long…
Days = the number of days an individual put on their skis and skied at least one run…
Bold print = winner of that category for this time-period

To protect the innocent each individual is identified by their code name (note – RAR to date has skied with HW and so certain data is similar):
the Saint – 8
gw – 8
RAR – 3
HW – 3

the Saint – 59
gw – 59

RAR – 28
HW – 28

gw – 25,937
the Saint – 24,587
RAR – 14,247
HW – 14,247

gw – 120.1
the Saint – 115.5
HW – 63.8
RAR – 63.8

Average Max Speed (individual day highest max in brackets):
HW – 61.6 (59.7)
gw – 54.81 (64.2)
the Saint – 45.3 (52.4)
RAR – n/a (still hasn’t bought $0.99 app)

Already we have more snow than most years in late March… and the hill is grooming a bit more so far this year! You are invited for some moments in the 2022/2023 season…

As always,
