Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel Preview
The tech women are ready for this year’s Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel, an Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup.
The U.S. women had a strong showing in Levi with back-to-back wins by Mikaela Shiffrin, back-to-back point scoring from Ava Sunshine in 21st and 26th, and a great day for Katie Hensien placing 25th in Levi. Plus, Paula Moltzan had very fast intervals before she went out, proving she can be up there with the top slalom skiers in the world.
Turning to the Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel, this weekend includes both slalom and a GS.
Top skiers to watch for GS include Tessa Worley (FRA), Frederica Brignone (ITA), Sara Hector (SWE), Petra Vhlová (CZE) and more. Worley won the giant slalom World Cup in Killington in 2016, she is also last season’s GS crystal globe winner. Hector claimed three World Cup giant slalom wins last season. She also won Olympic gold in this discipline in Beijing. Vlhová has won six giant slalom World Cups and claimed 14 podium finishes. Marta Bassino (ITA) is also one to watch after she won the Killington giant slalom in 2019.
