Edit: I also will note that several(if not most) of those finishers on that listed didn't ski off the exact summit off every 14er and get 1,000' off every one of the summits. Just saying... I personally don't enjoy it when I don't get both of those criteria, but as a friend said ' I'm not doing it to be famous, semi-famous or sponsored.' Since I have a job and a relationship with my wife and kids that are more important to me than summit skis, I'll have to get what i ski in when I can get it. Maybe I go back again to do better later some other time, assuming we have good springs anymore.

This just points out how serious some take the rules of skiing off the summit of the peak, even if it’s pretty ridiculous.jmanner wrote: ↑Thu Apr 15, 2021 6:44 pmThis was literally my point earlier, sometimes its possible to ski something from the exact summit, but its pretty pointless exercise. Also moving snow around always seemed like jerking one's self off... its not really in until you made it in.a forest wrote: ↑Thu Apr 15, 2021 6:23 pmI coincidently was just reading a Missouri TR that related to this thread, kinda funny.
