I logged skiing as "skiing general", and according to fitday I burn about 7 calories/minute. So yeah, that's pretty good, less than running, but way more than the stationary bike (and let's face it, a whole lot more fun than the gym!). We were there about 4.5 hours, but I only logged 2.5 as skiing, since it's a short hill and you spend about 1/2 the time on the lift. I'm not a terribly good skier, but I will go faster down the hill behind my kids than I would choose to go on my own, that's for sure. Good grief the kiddies are all getting to be so good it's not even funny. Lickity-split down the hill, like demons I swear. Yesterday they were all invited to join the Jr. Ski Patrol. Unfortunately with swimming I'm not sure we can swing it. Maybe next year.
