I'm going to take a lesson or two next season. Have him ride with me and point out bad habits to improve on.

I passed more people than those who passed me, including a bunch of skiers that I let drop in ahead of me (though they weren't bombing it like my wife likes to do). I don't have a GPS to measure my speed or anything but I felt like I was cooking on those runs, at least for me.
You can get free ones for your smart phone. They're accurate enough and gives you a sense of what you're doing.

Your assumption that I have a smart phone is the problem with that though, .

Where you planning on hitting 60 Dave?

Oh wait, nvm.

I'm gonna try at Crystal. I know I've broken 50 for sure if I got 48.5 at holly lol. I need to just keep my app running.

Unless of course it's slushtastic.

I still think the best spot for speed runs is south peak at cab. I'd like to pay that place a revisit.

Last year we were at Crystal in Mid March and it was the slowest snow I've ever been on. We still had fun though.
