    You and anyone else. I don't give a sh*t about this highway star he sounds like even more of a bragger than me. I'm not trying to get myself killed just to prove a point.

    Right. The more data points used, the more accurate it will be, BUT then you are venturing towards average speed and farther from your true max speed since more often than not we only top out for a brief moment when skiing. What you need to get a accurate max speed is a high rate of data point collection AND an accurate measurement of distance, but any phone GPS I've seen so far is just not capable of those things.

    Point is, if you want to truly know how fast you can go, have someone clock you with a radar gun. Or, if you had some good timing equipment, you could set up a speed trap at the bottom of a long steep run. That would be a cool feature to add to the Epic pass. It could read your RFID as you go through, measure your speed and then send the results to your account.

    Why would I go all the way out to the Berkshires to prove something? I have nothing to prove. I know I can ski and don't brag about.

    Does that require a room?

    The local authorities and current etiquette generally encourage a private setting for such activities, yes.

    Alright well if you got nothing to prove maybe don't come into people's ski report threads calling BS Nannies on their speeds so much?

    Maybe the GPS was off by 10mph but I skied fast. I usually do ski fast. It's alright.

    People saying I took shitty turns down Berkshire East I'd like to see you slay that mountain any faster when it's all bumped up on the top half. Only possible faster way down is via Competition if you did a straight shot and that takes balls.

    You did not even hit 66mph. Nowhere near it. When you brag at least try to make it some what believable. I will call out anyone on crap. Even if you were doing 40 ish, it was dangerous.


    So, bullshit.

    Put the money where the mouth is sometime this season. Sorry you think exceeding 40 is dangerous. Good thing ski patrol at Killington has a better sense of humor about things.

    btw Rossi Phantom 185cm 80 waist. You got faster skis? These things are like hot rails at speed.
