A freestyle skier hits the take off ramp with an initial velocity of 17.5 m/s with a purely vertical take off (90 degrees). What is the peak height that the skier will reach?

Can you fully explain to me how to get this answer?

I did the formula d=Vi*deltT+(1/2)(a)(t^2). To get time did 17.5m/s/9.81m/s=1.78s. Got the answer 46.69 but the answer is 15.56. I got 15.56 on one side of my equation so idk what I'm doing wrong.
