skiing in mammoth

this past weekend alice chen and i met jeff and jennifer in mammoth lakes, ca for some snow sports. we stayed at the rodeway inn, which i highly recommend. the price was the cheapest we could find and the place wasn't dumpy like many of the motels in south lake tahoe. they even provided free breakfast and spiced hot apple cider!

this was alice chen's first time skiing, so i took her down the greens a few times. while we were sitting on the lift, we noticed a sign that said "lose your board, lose your ticket". of course, jeff had to put that theory to the test by having his board slide all the way down the mountain while he chased after it. true to their word, the ski patrol noticed jeff losing his board and then proceeded to force him to lose his ticket. luckily the lift ticket suspension was for one day only and jeff was able to ski the next day.

on sunday, jeff and i played with our phones to track our skiing performance. unfortunately, it was really windy and the top lifts were closed, so there weren't many blacks to play on.

here are my stats:
Total Time: 04:04:50
Moving Time: 03:03:01
Distance: 29.97 miles
Average Speed: 7.44 mph
Average Moving Speed: 9.82 mph
Max Speed: 48.09 mph
Elevation Gain: 11970 ft
Min Elevation: 8008 ft
Max Elevation: 9850 ft

alas, i was eclipsed by jeff's amazing high speed of 123 mph!

here is a map of where we skied
