Interim Ski up-date to mid-February

Well we are probably just beyond the half-way spot in 2022/2023 season and here’s an update to February 14th!

Just a reminder about the codes/terms:
Days = the number of days an individual put on their skis and skied at least one run…

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 — this is km/hr!

Distance = this is the amount of ground (in kilometres) 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…

Bold print = winner of that category to this point in the season

To protect the innocent each individual is identified by their code name (note – HW has been off since late January due to eye surgery – is expected to return next week):

the Saint – 26*
gw – 26*
RAR – 19
HW – 7

gw – 234*
the Saint – 228*
RAR – 197
HW – 67

gw – 101,672*
the Saint – 95,237*
RAR – 94,014
HW – 30,986

gw – 487.9*
the Saint – 453.2*
HW – 142.4
RAR – no data (hasn’t the app)

Average Max Speed (individual day highest max in brackets):
gw – 67.3 (83.8)
HW – 63.45 (65.3)
the Saint – 52.5 (54.6)
RAR – no data (hasn’t the app)

  • — * includes three [3] days at Silver Star Ski Resort near Vernon BC

Snow is reasonably plentiful, but more is needed to reduce some of the icy spots… You are invited for some of the remaining moments in this season (many wineries will be re-opening at the beginning of March, so tours could be arranged après-ski…)

As always,
