More pow[d]er to him!
At Mt. Hood, Oregon on July 27, a fellow by the name of Rainer Hertrich became the first person to have skied every day for 1,000 consecutive days...and he rode a motorcycle to a lot of the places he went to ski.
He rides a BMW; have skis, will travel.
(See picture, above)
Anyway, he started this "serial skiing" in November of 2003 at Copper Mountain in Colorado, where he works as a trail groomer during the regular ski season there.
This guy is the definitive ski bum. He's going to be listed in Guinness World Records for his achievement.
He has no plans to stop just yet. He intends to fly down to Chile right after Labor Day, ski there for about six weeks, then return to Colorado.
I've personally skied in Colorado one fine June, at A-Basin, and it was 32º at the top of the chairlift that day. Most of the other ski areas are closed then, however, even though there's generally still plenty of skiable terrain available. The demand is just insufficient to make it feasible to run the lifts, but then, there's backcountry (cross country) skiing.
