I took ride 251 today. I am pretty sure that is the most rides I have taken in one year as an adult.

How much did you ski this year?

    The usual. About 100 sets.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    44 sets. This was the most sets and first injury free season in many years. I attribute it to two changes, training at 32 mph (yeah ZBS), and a new ski and boots.

    More than usual, but I didn't keep a count.

    302 sets/6360 complete buoys; a year of regression and inefficient skiing. :(

    Less than 15 rides including riding jumpers. A low for me since I started skiing again about 12 years ago. If I can figure out my back issues next year will be better.

    Amazing coincidence @Horton, today I also took my 251st set of the year which is by far the most sets I have skied in one year. This is the first year I have been a owner at Still Water Lake Estates, I use to ski more in the 150-175 set range a year when I was skiing on public water.

    Worst year since I began skiing. Probably 40 sets. Biggest reason for decline is no opportunity to take my 2 year old son with me.

    140 sets from mid may to late october with absolutely no improvement whatsoever. Skiing with an extra 20 lbs didn t help at all.
    Gonna blame homebrewing for this one...
  • dhofertdhofert Posts: 201 Baller
    142 rides. All free skiing 3-4 min each. April 1st through October 21st.

    More than ever.

    At least four sets on the weekends and once, twice a week, free skiing about 12 miles around the lake after work.

    The best of those mid week sets was meeting up with my buddy, waiting, watching for the traffic to die after dinner and having glass to ourselves.

    We always followed it up with a light dinner, some drinks and a toast to appreciating how lucky we are.

    178 sets and possibly 1 more if I go to the polar bear ski.

    @smalor regardless of how many you get in, it's NEVER enough.
    @JAG I'll drink to that!
    Is it time to ski, yet?

    I'm still skiing, took two sets yesterday morning and was into 35 on them both. The joy of a dry suit and a state that doesn't freeze over

    64 sets in the course. Maybe a few more before we set the course in April. Best year I have ever had and completely in love with the sport. Can't wait to start next year!

    Never enough.
  • brodybrody Posts: 296 Baller
    15 sets, record low, back shut me down. Focused on coaching friends and their kids. I taught 6 Kids to ski this summer and 1 to drop a ski and shortly after to get up on 1.

    Not enough.
    Was slow getting the course in due to wind, availability of partners and family schedule.
    Never really got going due to water level issues, dry summer meant extra irrigation and drastically low lake levels, moved course twice and pulled it early.

    See what next year brings.

    I estimate about 55-60 free ski sessions. Best year ever !
  • fizerfizer Posts: 23 Baller
    I think I took about 250 rides this year. I think 36 of those were tournament rides. Probably about 25% slalom, 30% jump, 45% trick.....yet I still suck at trick the most.
  • ricorico Posts: 61 Baller
    I ran my 154th set (including tournaments) on Saturday. It was pretty special since it was at the BOS headquarters and Rob Muhlitner was driving while Richelle was coaching, while Horton was watching the kids...

    Very little and gave back all of the progress I made last year. Got hurt in December and did not ski again until May, then never could regain my form and skied progressively worse until I quit skiing out of frustration in July. Hope to get back in the saddle this week.
