How about 18260 meters? Some people don’t do that in a season. 38 year old Forent Perrier, who has 11 world cup titles in ski mountainerring has just achieved this on the 25 March at ArĂȘches. That’s over 750m/hour over a whole day. Incroyable. His going into retirement now, well earned I would say.

Tnanks to for the heads up.

Yes but if they kept the lifts open all night (maybe in Lapland?) you could do better. I doubt many people break 10K meters lift served.

Average of 750m/hour....nuts, makes you appreciate how seriously fit the guys at the very top end of any endurance sport really are, when compared to us mere mortals smile
