    Na! Skiing is chill - everyone will do their own stuff and just enjoy the season for what it is worth! The best challenge is within yourself!

    Everyone has a story - take them with a grain of salt! If you see it - great - you are a witness! If not - it is a story!

    The app is more accurate in things besides max speed because it has more date points with which to calculate those things. Max speed is probably calculated by finding the most distance you covered between data points. If it takes a data point, say for example, once every half second, and you cover 50 feet between the two, you're doing 100ft/sec. Now, a phone GPS is only accurate to around 10 yards, if that, it certainly could be less accurate, and almost certainly will not be more accurate than that. For the sake of this post we'll say it accurate to within 10 yards. So that gives you +/- 20 yards of error in the distance calculation since we're talking about 2 data points. This means if you actually traveled 50 ft between data points, the phone may think you traveled anywhere between 30 and 70 ft. That will throw off your max speed quite a bit but average speed and all the rest will be ok because with more data points comes more accuracy.
    That was a good explanation. I would add that probably more accurate speed sensors use more than 2 data points and place them on a curve so it averages out, so your max speed is really the max speed you had over, say, at least a few seconds as opposed to that microsecond top speed.

    Trust I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the numbers on the app. I figured I was doing more like 60-something but I believed what the app said.
    60 sounds totally reasonable and doable. It's a significant difference to nearly 80.

    I would also say to try either Google MyTracks (free) . That's been pretty accurate for me.
