NZL - Mount Hutt - Portrait 22.jpg

Selfportrait at Mt. Hutt / New Zealand

Roger Gfrörer


I am a Swiss based world travelling skier.

Born 1971 in Switzerland.
First ski experience in 1975 in Leysin.
Visited 681 resorts and skied at least 5712 lifts
in 22 Countries (2022)


You can find the actual statistics here: Liftstatistics


I am an amateur, meaning, that I have real job and I am not paid by anyone for my ski trips. I even paid the tickets by myself (exceptions were Glacier3000 and First).

For feedback, ideas and other topics, send me an email

I look forward to hearing from you.

Rules for your statistics

There are several definition about how to collect the data:

  • With two friends, we founded the World Council of Skitistics. You can find the rules here
