Real friends are made on marathons like the one David Zemens and Sabato Caputo undertook this past Friday/Saturday. The two snowboarders loaded their truck and hit the road with ambitions that were much larger than the ski hills they frequent throughout the state of Michigan.
According to ClickOrlando, the duo rode 16 ski areas across the state of Michigan in 24 hours, starting at roughly 9pm on Friday before calling it a day on Saturday at the same time. That number of ski areas in a single day is a record for North America but falls just one short of Japan’s world record (*17 ski areas in a single day).

Thank you guys for sharing the stoke and cheering us on, thank you to all of the great #puremichigan resorts that were so gracious, and thanks to the Michigan Snowsports Industries Association for the coordination! #snowboarding #michigansnowballrun #agnarchy #michigan #winter #greatlakes #records #guinness
The route took the two diehards south from the northern situated ski area of Boyne Highlands all the way to Dexter Rutecki’s home mountain of Brighton near Detroit.
Congratulations on the historic achievement!
