You only count the gain, although when you ski, I know people who count elevation by the loss. I have a POLAR heart rate monitor for cycling that will calculate the elevation gain....it's fun!
January goal: fit into ski pants by months end! Ack!
MILEAGE GOAL 2011: 1500 miles

I see that a lot of people are able to log total elevation gain. What do you use to find this out. I know that the garmin computers can tell you this.
Is there a less expensive way to find out? And, when a person is talking elevation gain, do they count drops in elelvation also? (i.e. go up 1000 feet drop 300 feet up 500 feet = 1500 feet of climbing?)
