Fitzpatrick Wins Skier-X National Championship

Kelley Fitzpatrick eluded a wild crash early in today’s Women’s Skier-X final, as The College of Idaho junior claimed the first women’s individual title by a Lady Yote in 16 years, winning the 2011 USCSA National Championship at Dollar Mountain in Sun Valley.

The native of Keizer, Ore., who grew up skiing at Sun Valley, won her quarterfinal heat, edging out Rocky Mountain’s Isa Floden at the line, then dominating her semifinal run – winning by two seconds.
