Paula Moltzan took home the national championship giant slalom title in 2024, winning the Toyota U.S. Alpine Championships presented by Stifel at Sun Valley Resort. It is Moltzan’s second giant slalom title in a row.

It started out overcast and drizzly for first run with 18-year-old Elisabeth Bocock punching it into first place and Moltzan on her heels. However, the weather took a turn second run, with showers turning into blizzard-like conditions at the top of the course and pouring rain at the bottom second run. But the poor visibility and deteriorating course conditions didn’t seem to affect Moltzan and Bocock, who finished within .05 seconds of each other, and 2.49 seconds ahead of Madison Hoffman of the University of Utah. Moltzan took the win; Bocock was second.

Bocock has had quite a week, having already won the super-G national championship. She also stood on the GS junior podium with her sister Mary Bocock, who finished sixth overall and third for the juniors. Tatum Grosdidier was second, finishing just off the overall podium in fourth.
