I'm glad you think so! My watch recorded me here doing 265 km/h... Beat that bitches.

And for those that think they have that beat, this must be after I just applied wax. This day I maxed out at 6156 km/h!!! WOO HOO!!!

Day 29 - Nakiska by apoutanen at Garmin Connect - Details

People, stop worrying about your bloody top speed. It means nothings. If you want to compare how fast you are go try a BX course and time yourself on it, then time your buddy for bragging rights. Some of the best days I've had on snow I never went over 65 km/h (according to my super accurate watch GPS). It's all about having fun, not trying for the land speed record!
