Why does the Adventurer show the total distance in the ski mode, including lifts?

I can't understand it. Every time I go skiing I have to estimate the total distance on my skis, I mean descending, because the Adventurer calculates the total amount of km made during the session INCLUDING the lifts.
If it knows perfectly that I'm ascending in a chair or cable car, because it shows the last descent, why can't it keep that distance without adding up the climbing? I'm very dissappointed.
I made this same question last year, but I still have no answer at all.

    It is just the way they programmed it and they are not going to change it now. Considering TT has left the wearables market and is not producing any new devices (and never even released the Adventurer in the US), I would assume at this point any updates will be limited to bug fixes (and even that may be limited - it has been over three months since the last update broke connectivity for many users and introduced battery drain issues and that is still unresolved). I would not expect much more development and certainly not something major particularly on the watch side (they may continue to tweak the MySports site and app, but not the watches themselves).

    I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.
