On the second day of the Stifel Palisades Tahoe Cup, Stifel U.S. Ski Team athlete Jett Seymour stole the show with a 15th place and secured the Stifel Bibbo Award moving from bib 39 to 15th place. 

“I felt good about my second run. I had a few mistakes but that’s ski racing and I’m happy with the day,” said Seymour. 

It was another picture perfect day in the Lake Tahoe region with sunny skies, loud crowds and perfect snow for the world’s best ski racers. The U.S. team had six men on the docket ready to take their crack at the Red Dog slope. Seymour was up first for the Stifel U.S. Ski Team, sending it down the hill without looking back to land himself a spot for the second run - the sole U.S. competitor to do so. 

The domestic crowd showed up for Seymour on the second run. The cheers were so loud that racers could hear clearly from the start. Seymour was cool under pressure on the tricky second run set and knifed his way into the finish. He ended up moving eight spots from his original first run to land in 15th position for his best finish of the year. 

“It does not get any better than this,” said Seymour. “Standing in the start, I can hear the crowd from the top. It elevates the nerves and energy and I just had to take that and use it to fuel my skiing.”

Seymour's result also secured him the Stifel Bibbo Award - a cash prize on top of his season-best finish.

Ben Ritchie, Jimmy Krupka and River Radamus did not finish the first run but are okay. Luke Winters and Isaiah Nelson did not qualify for a second run. 

The winner of the race was Austrian Manuel Feller, the current overall slalom standings leader. French Olympic gold medalist Clement Noel took second place with German Linus Strasser in third. 

The slalom and giant slalom crew will now continue the U.S. tour to Aspen for the Stifel Aspen Winternational races March 1-3.
