Description VIRGINIA HUIDEKOPER - Virginia Guernsey Huidekoper began skiing in the hills above Salt Lake City in the mid-1930s. Graduating to the canyons and slopes of the Wasatch in the days before lift-served skiing, she made the requisite heart-pumping climb for each thrilling race. Virginia became a regular at Alta and Brighton, quickly developing skill as a competitive racer. She had a successful racing career competing in well-known races throughout the Intermountain region. Among her victories: first place in the prestigious Alta Cup two years in a row, and third place the following year. In the 1940s, Virginia moved to Jackson Hole where she was one of the founders of the Jackson Hole Ski Club. She was also a principal in the founding, developing and ongoing success of the Snow King Ski Area. In addition to competing in races, Virginia, who operated a local newspaper, created some the first brochures and advertisements for Snow King. She and her husband Jim also chaperoned, coached and sponsored many early junior racers from the Jackson Hole area. JANNETTE JOHNSON - With parents who were members of the Seattle Mountaineers, Jannette Burr Johnson was introduced to the mountains, snow and skiing at a very young age. By the time she won the first race she entered at Snowqualmie Pass she was hooked. Soon she entered a four-way competition taking third and defeating many of the men. In 1953, Jannette won the Eccles Cup at Snowbasin and the Brighton Intermountain Giant Slalom. She placed second in the Snow Cup. In 1950 and 1954, Jannette was a member of the FIS competition in Sweden and a member of the U. S. Olympic team in 1952 in Oslo, Norway. In the 1954 FIS in Sweden, she won the bronze medal wearing "lucky" stretch pants she borrowed from Buddy Werner. In 1955, Jannette was awarded the Diamond Harriman Pin, an honor competition shared only with ski legend Gretchen Fraser. Throughout the 1950s, she was a regular competitor on the national and international ski circuits. Despite dozens of finishes and 36 years as a ski instructor at Sun Valley, starring in "Lucy Goes to Sun Valley," a TV movie that featured Jannette as Lucille Ball's double was perhaps her most entertaining ski accomplishment. WILMA JOHNSON - Wilma Johnson shared her husband Ted's Snowbird dream from the time they were married in the early 1960s. By 1965, Ted had acquired the Blackjack and Snowbird mining claims with Wilma's behind-the- scenes researching skills. With a scale model of the Snowbird Village in the back of their station wagon, they criss-crossed the country raising money for a limited
