Meh, check out the Speed Skiing World Records. I can't even imagine what it would be like to do 153 mph on a pair of planks. :shock:

For the average skier, that's beyond their level.

Now my son? Who knows how fast that little fawker goes....but he raced till J3, so he should be fast...but it's still amazing to watch someone take 3 lazy turns down a black diamond, shoot over..hit a bump in the snow...catch air, spin 180...go backwards for a while...spin and be gone.....

Cool, buy him a Foretrex then let's have a pool to see who can guess his top speed the closest. I'm in for 72.4 mph. If you also want to buy him one of these, then I'm in for 78.9 mph. :)
