Mike and Belinda McConnell are well-known at Deer Valley for their synchronized ski runs, and matching outfits.

Fox 13 News Utah spoke with the couple about their matching gear, and their goal to ski 3 million vertical feet this season.

The couple is already at 1.6 million vertical between Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort!

‘3 million vertical feet’ sounds like a high number itself, but breaking down the number of runs and time needed to complete the feet is even more impressive.

Take a look at these hypothetical numbers to accomplish 3 million vertical feet of skiing at Deer Valley.
