a partner request on another website (for this upcoming winter) has me curious.

Given the fact that there are only 287 winter 46'ers I would guess not too many if any have done it in a single season.

And with about 90 eligible days that would be one peak every other day.

Sounds like a good challenge! ;)

I believe Pin-Pin and Tom Haskins have. I could be mistaken however.

Some of the early W46ers have probably done it as well.

Hi Dave.

Positively, I am sure for

Jonathan Asper and propably a couple of member of his family

Wayne Ratowsky (11 solo winter)

Ed Bunk and a couple of CHUMPS.

Pinpin Junior every winter since 21 september 1996 = 8 consecutives!!!

We will start the 21 december to continue this nice custom......

Have a great time!!! :)

Johnathan Esper (#3187) did 3 complete rounds in the winter of 1998-99, including one complete round in 9 days. He was around 16 years old at the time I believe. I followed a couple of his packed trails on some peaks that winter.

46 Winter Peaks in 9 days? I'm guessing it was his spring break. Good for him! A lot more productive than any of my spring breaks.

Has anybody done it faster than that in any season?

Probably lots of folks have been faster than 9 days during non-winter seasons, including Cave Dog's record in under 4 days.

Cave Dog did them in 3 days, 18 hours, 14 minutes, breaking the previous record by almost exactly 24 hours. Here's the link (http://www.thedogteam.com/Adirondacks-Web_Pages/Adirondacks_46/Adirondacks-index-frame.html)
