a "set" for me typically consists of the time period between when i get up and when i fall. ;)

I thought it was time between taking out the first group for a ski and coming back for the second group.....
My father always said...Let me "Set" awhile then I'll take the rest of you out to ski. :uglyhamme

how much for a free skier??

When your quads start burning when you are making your cuts. It all depends on how you are feeling, and the size of the area in which your skiing, for example, if one shorline has glass for 500 feet or whatever.

If your free skiing its “your turn”. However long that is, a mile +/-

free skiing or boarding for us, a set is either 1.7 miles or 3.4 miles. 1.7 miles each way one the river.

Bingo! Usually they say 10 minutes of free skiing if not in the course

Per our clubs rules of engagement "A set is defined as six passes through the entrance gates. A single pass is defined as when a boat passes through the entrance gates. The skier is allowed a total of six passes through the entrance gates per set. If the skier falls three times within those six passes, their turn is considered over."

A set is the time between when a skier gets in the water to ski & getting out of the water after skiing!!!! If you go to a ski school it is 6- 8 passes thru the course or 15 minutes!

Holy Cr@p! I need to start working out. I'm only ever good for 4 passes through the gates. I can't imagine being able to get 6 in without resting in the middle.
