A snowboarder yesterday smashed the Guinness World Record for ‘greatest vertical distance snowboarded in 12 hours’.
Myles Silverman broke the record at Sugarloaf Resort, ME, snowboarding just short of 100,000 vertical feet in 12-hours. The previous official record was 62,335 ft 11 in set by Brit Keith Hayes at Sun Peaks Resort, BC in 2017.
Silverman lapped the Sugarloaf Superquad 56 times, riding down Narrow Gauge, to achieve his final distance of 99,848-feet.
In 2018 Jamie Barrow snowboarded 180,814-vertical-feet in 12-hours, but this did not qualify as an official Guinness World Record.

Uh… What am I missing here?? People do 100k feet all the time in CO. This year I did 100k in 9 hours, and there was some other kid out there the same day going for the “Vertical Marathon” (138k).
