Elevation gain for Skoki Lodge

The numbers everyone is quoting are wrong. I talked to Skoki reservations and they said they don't know for sure. Yes, it's about a 7-mile ski, but the elevation gain (according to the managers at Skoki Lodge, who do this route all the time) is 1,600 feet (1,592 feet, to be exact).

Who's "everyone"? Am I missing something here?

It's easy for numbers such as this to be confusing. To get to Skoki, you go up, then down. So some people would take the difference between the starting point and the end point, and call that the elevation gain. Others would calculate every stretch where you're climbing up, add them together, and call that the elevation gain.

You go up twice, and down twice to get there. The elevation gain also depends on whether you can hitch a ride up to Temple Lodge or have to start at Fish Creek.

Lots of room for confusion. Just budget the whole day for it.
