Whitefish Mountain Resort Vert Records
A hearty congratulations to Katherine (Kay) Yobst for winning the Ladies Vert Title in 2013~! Kay skied a personal best 2,712,322 vertical feet in earning her 4th Ladies Title and fourth Big Mountain Overall Top 10 finish. It was again a pleasure skiing with you–and especially in the steeps and the new terrain.
Coming in 2nd, Jeanne Reichstadt, also a 4-time Ladies Title-holder, skied another Ladies All-Time Top 10, amassing an impressive 2,204,216 vertical feet. Jeanne is a model of consistency, skiing her 5th season (over the last decade) in the ballpark of 2.2 million feet.
Rounding out the ladies podium, was teen phenom Jamie Meyer. Jamie skied 1,710,183′ of super gnarly terrain. Whenever I skied the gnarliest, most technical lines, of our signature expert terrain (Picture Chutes, NBC, East Rim, etc), it was always the Meyers (Jamie with her Dad and brother) who I encountered on my left and right–and they were always skiing the gnarlier line. My hats off to you. I draw a great deal of inspiration from those who are skiing at levels that I’m still working hard toward achieving. And she’s still a teen-ager.
To the rest of the Ladies in the Top 10, I offer a hearty–“Well Done~!” There are plenty of familiar faces in the group. Luanne Metcalf, Nancy Cohn, and Betty Anne Shores all continued their streak of ongoing Top 10 Ladies finishes. Again, congratulations are in order~!
Below are the updated Ladies Top 10 All-Time Records—The bar for entering this elite stat list continues to rise. It takes nearly 2.2 million feet just to get in the door. Set your sights high and give it a run.
Once again, these records are not official and I am not affiliated with the Resort. I welcome any constructive inputs you may have. I am all about accurately completing the record. Cheers JDPF
