Mine are longer than yours!

Christoph Schrahe, from Montenius Consult, is a German who's has made some money for the past three years, publishing the state of Ski Runs the world over by measuring how long they are for every major ski resort.

Besides compiling a hit-parade in that odd category, he also complains that French and Swiss ski resorts tend to exagerate the total mileage of their respective ski runs. America doesn't measure the size in trail length, but rather is area, which in my view makes much more sense.

Number 1 in his placemet is the Three Valleys interconnect (8 resorts including Courchevel, Meribel, Val Thorens ...) with a total of 337 miles (542 km) of trails, followed by the Paradiski interconnect (Les Arcs and La Plagne ) a 250 miles (402 km), both in the French Alps.

Number 3 is the sum of Park City and Deer Valley, my recent Utah hometown, with 224 miles (360 km). This sounds quite flatering except that Deer Valley is not (yet) connected to Park City, so Mr. Schrahe should take notice!

According to the study, my previous hometown, Les Portes du Soleil, is lying through its teeth by claiming 373 miles (600 km) of ski trails (it used to claim 404!) while in reality, according to Christoph Schrahe's tape measurer, it can only get a measly 270 km, less than Deer Valley and Park City combined. This guy makes me feel really good!
