Welcome to Statistical Skier!

I’ve somehow managed to amass a fairly impressive database of international skiing results (what can I say, I really like data) and cross-country skiing has been a huge part of my life.  I wrote a few articles[1. I’ve reposted them in the preceding posts.] for this spring exploring some of this data and I was excited that at least a few people seemed to enjoy them.  More importantly, though, I had a ton of fun writing them.

I had so much fun, in fact, that I’m going to keep exploring the data here.

Things are just getting off the ground, website-wise, so I apologize if things look a little rough around the edges.  Like everything else on the web, it is a work in progress.

As for content, we’ll just have to see what happens.  A lot of the stuff I plan on writing about isn’t nearly as “serious” as the articles I wrote for, but of course some things will be more along those lines.  But trust me, I have plenty of ideas for topics!  My goal is to post something new at least several times a week, even during the summer, a decidedly slow time for skiing news.

So have a look around as we get up and running.  Please be sure to check back in for updates and/or subscribe to my RSS feed.

Finally, a special request: if you happen to have results for World Cup, Olympic or World Championship races from the 1990-1991 seasons or prior, I’d love to hear from you.  What I’m looking for are complete results including times.  If you’re willing to share them, I’d be grateful.  Paper or electronic media of (nearly) any format is fine.  You can email me at statisticalskier at gmail dot com.
