March Kern also clocked up 5550 vertical
metres in just one hour, breaking the previous Guinness
world record of 4490.
The skier then went on to ski a total
of 60,874 vertical metres in one day, resorting to eating
a fuelling Spaghetti Bolognese lunch in a gondola to save
time and skiing with a head torch as night fell.
36-year-old Kern chose Speikboden
for his record attempts because of the fast Speikboden gondola
and a 5.5km Speikboden run which he skied 58 times as part
of his world record attempt.
The skier also took in additional slopes
to bring his overall distance skied to 361km and total distance
travelled on slopes and lifts to 520km.
Oliver Kern has visited more than
700 ski resorts and has four world records under his belt.
He already has the most resorts in a day and the rather odd
one of skiing in 3 different resorts in a single day that
are separated by The Atlantic Ocean.
