Of course I don't know anything on the topic, but I can tell you that in person, they look MUCH bigger and more pronounced and evenly shaped than the picture lets on.

edit: damn, double posted after all!

About vertical speed, it can be approximated with math. The more satellites being used, the more accurate calculations will be.

Ski Traxx claims to use special algorithms for accurate readings. I'm gonna take their word for it.

We already know the horizontal speed was pretty spot on when we did that car test Sam.

Also, that other app I showed you that places your trail on the ski resort map was pretty accurate about my tracks. It was even showing the little dips in slope I was hitting I noticed. I'd have to see it in real time though. Maybe it tells the time of my run too. I should stop watch myself and run that app as well.

If it's not accounting for vertical, there should be discrepancies between my stop watch and the app tracking the time of my run.

I've never seen moguls made by a machine, or man. They just naturally form from people going down the hills. Maybe for races they have to hand make them?????

Yeah, I knew they could figure it out with math if accounted for so it's good to know that ski tracks does that. I hope my ski tracks does also...although if not then I'm going even faster than I thought.

I suspect they do because of that holly example. That section is super short and those moguls are taller than my knees. They disappeared and reappeared in a matter of a couple days. I never once saw that run crowded not even on the busiest of Holly days.

No way, you need a written, signed statement from Holly to prove they made those....no pats until then!

Oh I'm sure MTH makes moguls on that tiny ass trail of thers, as do most of the professional courses where they do mogul competitions, they have to be uniform size & shape. See those in the olympics, etc.

I am fairly certain Crystal doesn't make moguls, though.
