Default 1,000,000 Verts on Skis

Just when I think i'm doing ok in the mountains I run into something like this revealing me for the weiner I am.
In 145 days last winter Greg Hill of Revelstoke climbed 1,000,000 vertical feet on skis.On Febuary 28 he climbed 25 1,600 foot laps totalling 40,000 vertical feet.
This is almost beyond belief!People like this are truly an inspiration.For another inspiring story google Nancy Hansen and read of her climbs of all 11,000 foot peaks in the Canadian Rockies.Truly amazing!'
BTW Greg Hill is retiring from ski bumming for awhile as he is about to become a father(don't know how he found the time or energy to become one)
