2 min up with a drag lift, 20-40 s down depending if I'm trying to carve or hitting jumps. But it's close to me, no lift lines or need to wait my turn for the jump and ~20$ day pass, so it works for me...

I try to get at least 25 runs in a day when I go, on an easy day maybe 15, more hardcore maybe 40. I'm only about 50 mins away. Small vert of 500-750'. Speed lifts help. But ya that ratio is about right

Hot laps baby, hot laps. I just came back from a mountain trip where I was riding like 8-20 minute runs, this is great and all but I get in like 10-15 runs a day.

At my local small hill I put in runs under a minute, when riding park, this is so much more practice. I do tons of runs in a day and it's much more exhausting, even if I'm riding the chair that much more. These small hills don't usually have chair lineups, all they need is some express lifts

My hill has a 500 foot vertical. If I'm trying to get down as fast as possible it takes me about 2 mins to get down. To get to the top it takes 5-10 mins(depending on lines, and how often the lift stops)
