Two Dads and two Lads went on on a ski trip to Roccaraso, Italy, in February 2020. Snow conditions were fine for our group’s ability levels: By the end of the holiday, the whole group had the confidence to ski down any piste in control and without hesitation. Stats captured (on an app) over a typical 5 hour period:
- Distance: 74km
- Average speed: 14.3 kmh
- Max speed: 76 km/h.
On the video you will see why our average speed was low. The higher speeds were clocked on a couple of wide sweeping black runs.
New tricks learned (by this old dog): 360° turns, left and right! New trick not attempted: aerial 360°
More stats and facts: Age-group ranged from 15 to late 50’s. Both Dads are competent on any gradient (albeit slightly out of practice) and can ski off-piste. This was the second ski trip for the lads (the first being a school trip last year).
The 23 (out of 70) slopes that were open and were very well groomed with good snow, sadly, no off-piste.
The snow arrived the week after we left.
