2013 Data

2013 data is coming soon. We’re working on some fun new data pulls this year, and, yes, it’s taking longer than usual. And that’s only partly due to playing in the snow.

What kind of new data? Well, for one thing, a calculation for each skier of how many people they passed, and how many passed them (this has been asked for). Certainly some comparisons with this year versus last—it seems the course was a lot slower, doesn’t it? But most awesomely, we’re working on an animation that will show the state of the race every minute from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Can you say data visualization? DATA VISUALIZATION!

(And if you live in Duluth or Hayward or the UP, or Northern New England, for god’s sake go for a ski!)
