58 racers turned out for the annual Betty Woolsey race Saturday. Betty Woolsey was a member of the first US Women’s Olympic Team, and was the top US finisher in Slalom at the 1936 Olympic Games and was inducted into the National Ski Hall of Fame in 1969. She settled at Trail Creek Ranch in 1942 where she transformed Trail Creek Ranch to the 270 acres that it is today.  She then opened up the Ranch to the future Olympians of the Jackson Hole Ski Club.  Top finishers in Saturday’s race included 20-year-old Johnny Springer, 13-year-old Paul Bredal and 15-year-old Teily Gibson in their three respective races.
