Travel world record set by Oliver Kern
15] VANCOUVER, Canada-- Oliver
Kern, international ski resort tester of Skiresort
Service International skied in Japan, the USA and Canada -
3 ski resorts in 3 countries on 2 different continents on
1 day on both sides of the Pacific.
Mr Kernís latest feet began at 6:10 am when he
woke up in the New Otani Hotel Naspa in Japan. He was on the
slopes skiing at Naspa Ski Garden within 15 minutes!
By 8:33am he was on the train to Tokyo but disaster
struck at noon at the airport when the planned flight was
delayed by three and a half hours due to bad weather.
However an alternate flight to Seattle with United
Airlines was organised and departure finally took place at
4.390pm. Thanks to crossing the international dateline, the
flight arrived at 7:38 am the same day.
After nearly two hours for immigration Mr Kern
left the airport in a rental car at 9:45am and arrived at,
The Summit at Snoqualmie at 11:15am, skiing there
until 2:15pm. The drive to Canada then began, arriving at
Canadian immigration at 5:01pm.
Kern then battled through heavy traffic conditions
in Vancouver to arrive at the base of the Grouse Mountain
tram at 7:22pm. On his arrival there were about five meters
of snow, it was foggy with snowfall and strong winds but by
8:35 p.m. all of this was behind him when he rode all of the
open ski lifts and he achieved a new world record.
Kern has already set two other World Records by having
previously skied on both sides of the Atlantic in one day
and having skied all 52 lifts in the Austrian Skiwelt on one
