Smile What is your top speed?

And on what board setup?
I have no idea about what speeds other boarders can reach. Therefore this question.

Mine was 100.2km/h, black groomed slope in Ischgl.
Burton supermodel x with Cartels.

I've been wondering about that since last year. What do you guys use to clock yourselves? Anything cheap out there that will do this? I'm not that interested in it to fork over 2-300 bucks on a GPS.

You could probably use an Android app to see how fast you went.

While the weather wasn't cooperating last year, I did plenty B-chute bombs in an effort to making groomers exciting. This involves making about 3 turns on a steep-ass groomed double-black diamond. My stupid Garmin GPS crapped out last year, but I know I was zoooooming. Good o'l 156 Atomic Hatchet, the board that does everything.

You can download apps on Android that'll do it. Won't be as accurate as a true GPS, but it'll get you in the ballpark.

Nk clue what my fastest is, but I'm sure it occurred on Frenchman at Keystone right after they reopen it at 5 for night riding and it would be on a 160 NS Heritage and Ride SPi's.

Anything besides smart phone apps? I won't get one till they make one that is construction friendly like my motorola.

I know I clocked some pretty fast runs down motezuma last year, I was making a conservitive estimate at 40-45. I think I was getting faster speeds on the blues I explored. I know I was turning some faster runs on Dercums, I'm Guessing mid 50's. On the steeper runs I tended to speed check a bit more, I let myself go more on the lighter slopes. It would be interesting to know for sure.

You should be able to find older used handheld gps's for well under $100.
Even though I have a crappy phone my friend just got an Evo so that will be used this season to push us to hurt our selves.

Make sure you hit a tree while you are avidly staring at your phone.
