balance sheet snowboarding season 2009/10

Since we had little snow this year shows a negative trend. Less days spent snowboarding, less meters of altitude. In December and around christmas I basically went snowboarding instead of talking a walk, stopping after an hour or two. The first reasonable day was January 23rd. My season ended April 17th with a perfect day at Warth.

Here is the balance sheet:

2005/06 2006/07 2007/08 2008/09 2009/10
number of (partial) days2517293730
total meters of altitude12463474096219936226774202089
# of runs309189503551462

On good days I had problems stopping ;-), ending up with three 11000m+ days. Not included above is one day in Brand (with the company I work for, I also did this last year) and my very first time at Lech am Arlberg. The road from Bregenzerwald to Lech is usually closed in winter due to danger of avalanches which is what stopped me before. This year it was open for some time due to little snow. I had great day there, although the snow cannons did not manage to cover all rocks.
