“I just like to ski,” says Glenn. “So, I can do almost 7,000 vertical feet in an hour, and after four hours I can get 25,000 or 30,000 vertical feet.”
He actually uses two tracking apps while skiing. The other app includes leaderboards so he can see how he stacks up against other skiers and riders — half of whom he knows or skis with, he says.
Glenn has been tracking his ski stats for 20 years — he loves figuring out his averages and knowing exactly what runs he’s skied where — and appreciates that technology now makes it easier to slice and dice all those numbers. During the 2017-2018 season, he skied 138 days and more than 3.3 million vertical feet. Now, a quarter of the way through this season, he’s pleased to report he’s tracking ahead of last season’s numbers.
“The conditions have been pretty good so there’s no reason not to get out there,” Glenn says.
