Two-time Olympic champion Lindsey Jacobellis scored a third place finish in Sierra Nevada, Spain at the FIS Snowboardcross World Cup. This is her first podium of the 2022-23 season. 

The women's big final saw Jacobellis racing Charlotte Bankes of Great Britain, Chloe Trespeuch of France and Eva Adamczykova of the Czech Republic. Jacobellis fought throughout the entire run as the lead continued to change to snag third. Bankes took the win with Treshpeuch in second.

Jacobellis is fresh off a bronze medal at the 2023 World Championships in Bakuriani, Georgia just over two weeks ago.

Rounding out the U.S. Snowboard Team women, Faye Gulini finished ninth, Stacy Gaskill 13th and Brianna Schnorrbusch 17th.

On the men's side, Senna Leith was the top American, making is to the quarterfinals and finishing in ninth place overall. Hagen Kearney did not qualify out of the 1/8 finals and took 25th. Jake Veddder, Nick Baumgartner, Connor Schlegel and Cody Winters did not qualify out of the 1/16 finals.

Shiffrin Achieves 87th Win; Moltzan Fourth

On Saturday, Mikaela Shiffrin became the greatest skier of all time, surpassing the record she tied the day prior, and now has the most World Cup of any alpine skier with 87 wins. She won her 87th race in the slalom in Åre, Sweden, the same location of her first ever World Cup win and exactly 12 years after her first World Cup start.

“I can’t put a name with the numbers,” said Shiffrin. “I don’t know how to define that. When you have these special moments like being on the podium with Paula Moltzan in Semmering, seeing my brother and Kristi and my mom in the finish today-–that’s what makes it memorable. I’m so proud of the skiing I did both runs today and so proud of the team this whole season. Every step of the way, being strong and focused and positive and having the right goals and helping me manage my own focus and distractions. It’s been incredible. It’s been incredible to be part of that. I’m just really thankful.”

It was also a tremendous day for teammate Paula Moltzan who landed just off the podium in fourth place. Moltzan and Shiffrin shared a podium in December in Semmering, Austria. Notably, Moltzan achieved this massive result coming out of hand surgery just a few weeks ago.

“I think I need to bring more intensity this run, but the same mindset to go as hard as I can,” said Moltzan after her first run that landed her in fifth. “The conditions were awesome so it’s nice to see it holding up for everyone.”

Second place went to Swiss skier Wendy Holdener, and third place Sweden’s own Anna Swenn Larsson. Rounding out the top five was 2023 World Championship slalom gold medalist Laurence St. Germain of Canada. This result marks her best World Cup result of her career. She is also a former University of Vermont teammate of Moltzan. 

The top 25 women in slalom will now head to Soldeu, Andorra for World Cup Finals, which runs March 15-19.

Shiffrin Wins 87th World Cup, Becomes Winningest Alpine Skier in History

Exactly 12 years after she began racing on the World Cup, Mikaela Shiffrin of the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team won her 87th World Cup in the Åre, Sweden slalom on March 11, 2023, breaking the tie of 86 wins set by Ingemar Stenmark in 1989 to become the winningest alpine skier in history.

For the second day in a row, Shiffrin dominated the Swedish course to take her second win in two days and officially break the record. She held the lead in the first run by .69 seconds and skied an aggressive and smart run second run to win the race by .94 seconds. As she crossed the finish line, she took a moment to let her historic win soak in, and then she saw her brother Taylor and sister-in-law Kristi, who surprised Shiffrin by flying in from the U.S. to celebrate with her, and swept her up in a hug. 

“I can’t put a name with the numbers,” said Shiffrin. “I don’t know how to define that. When you have these special moments like being on the podium with Paula Moltzan in Semmering, seeing my brother and Kristi and my mom in the finish todaythat’s what makes it memorable. I’m so proud of the skiing I did both runs today and so proud of the team this whole season. Every step of the way, being strong and focused and positive and having the right goals and helping me manage my own focus and distractions. It’s been incredible. It’s been incredible to be part of that. I’m just really thankful.”

Just off the podium was Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team teammate Moltzan in fourth place, who recently had hand surgery after breaking it during the World Championships. But she ignored the three plates and 25 screws in her hand, and attacked the slalom course to secure a banner finish.

Shiffrin won her first World Cup at the same venue in Åre, Sweden in 2012 and has been on a streak since then, winning 87 Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cups throughout her 12 years on the circuit. Her dominance has been unmatched, winning 35% of the races she starts and podiuming in nearly 60%. The win places her securely in the history books and makes her the greatest of all time in the sport of alpine ski racing. 

“It’s been hard to describe,” said Shiffrin of her record. “It’s not over yet, which is even more ridiculous! I still had the same feeling at the start of this run that I have every race—I shouldn’t feel pressure, but somehow I feel something in my heartbeat. That’s the anticipation we want to feel as ski racers and I have it—it’s stronger than ever. I’m just getting started.”

Shiffrin tied the World Cup wins record on March 10 in Are, Sweden with 86 wins, which had been held by Sweden’s Stenmark for 34 years. Shiffrin also tied and then broke Lindsey Vonn’s women’s record of 82 wins in January in Kronplatz, Italy. She has been unstoppable this season, winning 13 races so far, securing three World Championship medals in slalom, giant slalom and super-G and clinching the slalom, giant slalom and overall crystal globe for the 2022-23 season. 

Shiffrin’s 87th win is just 12 years after she started her first race on the World Cup in 2011 when she was only 15. She won her first World Cup nine months later in December 2012, becoming the second-youngest American to win an alpine World Cup. Since then, she has won three Olympic medals—including two golds—and 14 World Championship medals—the record for World Championships medals in the modern era—and has 15 crystal globes, including the three that she will receive at World Cup Finals.

Out of her 87 wins, 53 of them are slalom wins, the most of any skier, man or woman, in one discipline. But while she started off as a slalom specialist, she quickly expanded her repertoire to win a race in each of the World Cup’s six disciplines and became the first skier in history to do so: slalom (53), giant slalom (20), super-G (5), downhill (3), combined (1) and parallel (5). She holds the record for the most slalom wins and is tied for a women’s record for the most giant slalom World Cup victories. 

“It is truly magnificent to be able to watch Mikaela Shiffrin write her name into history,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard President & CEO Sophie Goldschmidt. “She is the definition of a champion, both inside and out, and the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team couldn’t be happier to celebrate this massive achievement with her. We can’t wait to watch Mikaela win even more in the future!”

Shiffrin and members of the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team who have finished in the top 25 of a discipline will now head to World Cup Finals in Soldeu, Andorra next to wrap up the season.

In the first day of the two-day giant slalom series in Kranjksa Gora, Slovenia, River Radamus led the way for the Americans with a 15th place finish.

The conditions were warm with very soft snow underfoot with course workers salting the course the day prior to try and keep a strong surface for the World Cup racers.

Marco Odermatt of Switzerland won the race to clinch the overall World Cup title for the second year in a row. He also extended his lead over Kristoffersen in the giant slalom standings with 140 points to go with two more races: Sunday's giant slalom and the World Cup Finals GS. In second place was French skier Alexis Pinturault, and in third was Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen.

George Steffey (37th) and Brian McLaughlin (45th) also raced but did not qualify for a second run. Tommy Ford did not finish.

The giant slalom men will now look to Sunday for another crack at the giant slalom.

Four in the Top 30 in Holmenkollen 50k

The Holmenkollen mass start 50k race is one of the most attended and popular races on the World Cup circuit. Held in downtown Oslo, the race dates back to the early 1900s and officially became part of the FIS World Cup circuit in 1981. Since then, it is a staple on the calendar and brings tens of thousands of spectators to the long, windy course to cheer on the best ski racers in the world. 

Today, March 11, just a week after many of these athletes raced in the 2023 World Championships 50k race in Planica, Slovenia, lined up to the finish line in Oslo. Representing the U.S. was Scott Patterson, Hunter Wonders, Gus Schumacher and David Norris. Just last week, Patterson led the team in 16th in Slovenia, while Norris was seconds behind in 22nd, Schumacher in 28th and Wonders in 31st. Today, results were similar, but better!

On the 31 mile track, with over 6,000 feet of elevation gain, Norris led the way in 17th, Patterson was 18th, Wonders was 23rd and Schumacher was 28th - all landing within the top 30 and adding more World Cup points to their 2022-23 season resume. 

The sun was out, the fans were ready and you could feel the excitement even on the furthest part of the course. With great conditions, the course was fast and the pace never slowed. 

Norris led the team for the day and taking a deeper dive into his splits, he never ventured from the top 20. At the 27.9k marker, Norris was in 12th place, in the chase pack. From there, he fell a few spots to 19th at 36.2k but stayed consistent in his pace and crossed the line in 17th in a time of one hour and 58 minutes. His 17th place marks a career best World Cup 50k result. 

"Today went well for me," said Norris. "No major mishaps and I have pretty good energy considering my schedule. Third 50 in three weeks! I'm so grateful that the Steamboat Winter Sports Club allowed me to come here for two weeks. This has been a great experience. The team here has been wonderful to join back up with."

For Patterson, he finished right behind Norris. In the start of the race, Patterson was keeping position within the top 15. At the 3k to 19k markers, Patterson was moving between 12th place and 14th place, taking turns leading the chase pack. At the end of the day, Patterson still broke into the top 20 and finished only three minutes behind the leader. 

"It was an interesting tactical race," said Patterson. "It was a so-so day, hoping for a little more but we still have two more weeks of the World Cup and looking to finishing off the season strong!"

For Wonders, the story was similar to that of his teammates. Wonders never ventured far from the top 25. He was 13th going into the first marker and then in the mid 20s through the rest. The pace was fast around the tight corners of the course and Wonders stuck his ground and crossed the line in 23rd, a career-best individual World Cup 50k result. 

Schumacher skied right with Wonders nearly the entire race, going back and fourth with him and his teammates in the 20-28th place range. For Schumacher, he crossed the line in 28th and will leave this race with a career-best individual World Cup 50k result. 

"it was a crazy day!" said Schumacher. "I am psyched on it. It felt really good for the first four laps. The atmosphere was great and it was just really fun. I wouldn't trade it for the World, my first time was all I expected it to be and I am looking forward to the rest of the season!"

At the end of the day, Norway took over the podium. Simen Hegstad Krueger took first, Hans Christer Holund was second and ML Nyenget was third. 

Now, the men will rest before heading to Drammen for Tuesday's race.

Shiffrin Wins 86th; Moltzan and O’Brien Top 20

On Friday, March 10, Mikaela Shiffrin made history. Crossing the finish line in first, Shiffrin clinched her 86th career World Cup win and tied longtime record holder Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden, who has held the record since 1989, with the most-ever World Cup wins. 

“This is just a spectacular day,” said Shiffrin after the race. “It's a pretty spectacular position to be in. I don’t take it for granted to be in this place where people ask me when I’m going to win 86 or 87. That’s a pretty cool place to be, even though it can be difficult to focus sometimes, but today I felt like the focus was there when I needed it to be and it was really fun to ski.”

Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team teammates Paula Moltzan and Nina O’Brien also skied great giant slalom races, with both of them landing in the top-20. Moltzan was 15th and O'Brien was 16th, respectively. Moltzan skied an impressive race where only three weeks ago sustained a hand injury that led to surgery when she crashed at World Championships - the same race where she won gold in the team event.

“Hand is hanging in there,” said Moltzan. “The doctors put in three plates and 25 screws to stabilize fractures in my three, four and five metacarpals.”

Moltzan will now focus on the slalom on Saturday, March 11 and added that, "giant slalom is a lot easier to manage than slalom," she said in regard to her hand injury. "I have had one day of slalom since before World Championships with a couple runs to test it and I am hoping to give it my all tomorrow with minimal pain.”

Nina O’Brien has also clinched her spot to the alpine World Cup Finals in Soldeu, Andorra, March 15-19. The top 25 in each discipline are invited to the alpine World Cup Finals. Prior to the Åre giant slalom, O’Brien was in the 27th position.

The women will now switch gear to slalom on Saturday, March 11.

Shiffrin Clinches 86th Win, Ties Stenmark for Most World Cup Wins

On Friday, March 10, 2023 at the site of her first career win in 2012, Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Mikaela Shiffrin won her 86th World Cup race in Åre, Sweden, tying Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark for the most Word Cup wins by any alpine skier in history. 

This is just a spectacular day,” said Shiffrin after the race. “It's a pretty spectacular position to be in. I don’t take it for granted to be in this place where people ask me when I’m going to win 86 or 87. That’s a pretty cool place to be, even though it can be difficult to focus sometimes, but today I felt like the focus was there when I needed it to be. It was really fun to ski and that is how I hope it would be.”

The win also clinched Shiffrin the giant slalom crystal globe, making her the most dominant giant slalom skier throughout the 2022-23 season. She already clinched the slalom globe and the overall title. She also now has a women’s record 20 World Cup victories in giant slalom, tying her with Vreni Schneider.

Stenmark dominated the men's slalom and giant slalom disciplines for a decade from 1975 before retiring in 1989. Stenmark’s record 86 victories has stood the test of time for 34 years.

“His legacy is synonymous with ski racing,” said Shiffrin. “If anyone knows anything about ski racing at all and even if they don’t, they know Ingemar Stenmark. I don’t think that will ever pass. He set the standard for what ski racing has become.” 

Stenmark passed the compliment right back to Shiffrin—the two share a comparable humble nature. “She’s much better than I was. You cannot compare,” Stenmark said of Shiffrin. “She has everything. She has good physical strength, she has a good technique, strong head. I think it’s the combination of everything makes her so good.”

Shiffrin was able to send him a video message after the race, stating, “No matter what I do, it doesn’t ever compare what to what he achieved. Maybe I get the 87th victory or maybe not, but the biggest dream is to be mentioned in the same sentence as you. Who you are and who you were as a ski racer and what you achieved as a human—that’s been the most inspiring thing.”  

The new record comes just 46 days after Shiffrin claimed the title of the winningest woman alpine skier in history with 83 victories when she won the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup in Kronplatz, Italy. 

Shiffrin had a stand-out day in Åre, winning first run by almost six tenths and skiing a smart second run to take the win by .64 seconds. This was her second time clinching the giant slalom globe for the second time in her career. She came through the finish and put her hands over her face second run, as her Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team teammates celebrated in the finish. This is Shiffrin’s 12th victory of the 2022-23 season.

Shiffrin’s 86th victory came at the venue of her first World Cup win in 2012. Now 27 years old, Shiffrin is rewriting alpine skiing history for generations to come. 

“86 wins is truly remarkable, but what makes Mikaela profoundly special is her kindness, humility and ability to inspire the world,” said Sophie Goldschmidt, President and CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard. “We are so proud to have her as part of our team. We are excited to see her break the record and continue to dominate for years to come.”

Shiffrin’s success began at a young age. At only 17, Shiffrin won her first World Cup in an Åre, Sweden slalom in December 2012, and became the second-youngest American to win an alpine World Cup. While she originally specialized in slalom, and continues to be dominant in the discipline, having won six of the nine slalom races this season alone, she expanded her repertoire over the years to become a force in all six disciplines. In 2019, she became the first ski racer in history to win in every event: downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, alpine combined and parallel. 

Shiffrin took her first giant slalom win in 2015 at the season-opener in Soelden. Her first super-G win was in Lake Louise, Canada in 2019, where she also won her first downhill in 2018. She won an alpine combined in Crans-Montana, Switzerland in 2017 and her first parallel at a city event in Stockholm, Sweden in 2017. 

Shiffrin holds 12 World Cup crystal globes in three different disciplines, including four overall titles, as well as 14 World Championships medals—seven golds, four silvers and three bronzes—and three Olympic medals. She has also already clinched the 2023 slalom, giant slalom and overall globe. 

Shiffrin next races on the slalom on Saturday in Åre.

Her Turn: Women to Race First-Ever 50k Race at the Holmenkollen

History is about to be made in Oslo, Norway over the weekend. For the first time ever, the women will race the 50k Holmenkollen - the same distance as the men - on the World Cup circuit. 

Based off the historic equal-distance vote by the Federation of International Skiing (FIS) in 2022, a notion was put forward to have both men and women race the same distance on the World Cup circuit. Following a vote during the FIS Cross Country committee meeting in May of 2022, the decision passed, allowing both genders to race the same distances in the 10k, 20k, skiathlon and 50k.

Now, with the end of the World Cup season around the corner, the highly anticipated 50k Holmenkollen for both men and women is on deck. 

The Holmenkollen 50k cross country ski race dates back to 1888. Traditionally, the men who lined up on the start line would smoke pipes to increase their lung capacity to give them a better chance of finishing the grueling 31 mile race. 

Set up in the city of Oslo, the Holmenkollen is one of the oldest and hardest ski races in the world. With tens of thousands of fans lining the course, many camping out for days to capture a good spot, the course is far from easy. Skiers will climb over 6,000 feet of elevation throughout the 50km; the course has the most vertical gain of any Olympic or World Cup course in history. 

As the former Oslo sport director said in 2011, "Everyone in cross country skiing community will see the winner of the 50km as the toughest skier of the season."

This year, four women will represent the United States on the start line and make history in doing so. 2023 World Champion and three-time Olympic medalist Jessie Diggins will lead the team, along with teammates Rosie Brennan, Hailey Swirbul and Alayna Sonnesyn.

"I am so so excited to finally get to ski a 50km race!" said Diggins. "I have been waiting my entire career for this race and we finally get a chance at the Holmenkollen. I am just so excited to ski my heart out and finally get a chance to ski this incredible and iconic race."

Earning two medals in the 2023 World Championships, including a historic gold in the 10k skate and team bronze with Julia Kern, Diggins has had a very successful 2022-23 season. Since November, Diggins has been on the podium seven times and after her 14th World Cup win in Davos, Switzerland, she became the most decorated U.S. cross country skier of all time.  

With Diggins are teammates Brennan, Swirbul and Sonnesyn. Brennan is a two-time Olympian, secured a career-best fourth place in the 2022-23 Tour de Ski, has represented her country at five World Championships and just days ago secured a World Championships fifth place in the 30km classic.

"I couldn't be more excited for the first women's 50km on the World Cup this weekend. It definitely is a little intimidating - 50km is far but it's also a great challenge," said Brennan. "I am really excited to have the journey out there with the whole women's pack and I think it will be a really exciting race. Equal distance has been such a cool experience to be a part of and so has been showing all the young girls out there that we are as capable as all the boys. I can't wait to give it a go this weekend!"

Swirbul, who is coming fresh off her best-ever World Championships result with an 18th place finish in the 30k, swept all three races at the 2022-23 National Championships and represented the USA at the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games.

"Guess who gets to race the Holmenkollen 50km in just a few days?! The women!" said Swirbul. "I am so stoked to be a part of it, our team is going to slay and it will be such a memorable experience to be a part of the first 50km for women on the World Cup. Let's go!"

Sonnesyn rounds the four U.S. athletes competing on Sunday. Sonnesyn had her first World Cup start in 2019 and has raced in several since. This season, Sonnesyn skied to her career-best result in the 20k skate pursuit, finishing fifth place based off of time, at the Tour de Ski and will enter her last World Cup of the season by first making history on the 50km start line. 

Be a part of the history and tune in on Sunday, March 12, at 4:15 a.m. ET on with commentary by former U.S. Cross Country Ski Team athlete and Olympic champion Kikkan Randall and NBC's Chad Salmela. 

Brita Sigourney, an "All Time Legend" of Halfpipe Skiing, Retires

By Leann Bentley
March, 8 2023

Olympic bronze medalist and three time Olympian Brita Sigourney announced March 7, that she will officially retire from professional halfpipe skiing. Born in Monterey, Calif., Sigourney is one of the sport's legends, inspiring generations of halfpipe athletes, not only through her skiing but her welcoming and compassionate spirit. A true competitor in and out of the pipe, she is an all-around incredible person. 

Sigourney started skiing when she was only two years old, and began ski racing at age eight before she found freeskiing. On her skis, she was unstoppable. Her confidence, work ethic and ability to learn has led her to find success at the highest levels of the sport. 

From her 13 years on the team, she has dealt with many injuries, including nine surgeries - but she came back from every single one stronger. Throughout her professional career, she won countless contests, made history with her tricks, and pushed the sport of women's halfpipe freeskiing to new heights. 

Her shining star was clinching the bronze medal in the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games in the slopestyle, but throughout her career, she won four World Cups at Toyota U.S. Grand Prixs ranging from 2011-2018, has 13 World Cup podiums and has five X Games medals. She also attended three Olympics and five World Championships, and has a World Champs bronze medal from 2019.

In addition to her accolades, she also innovated the sport, becoming the first woman to land a 1080 in a complete halfpipe run.

Sigourney wrapped up her career at the World Championships in Georgia. She is one of the best to ever do it, and even though her competitive career is coming to a close, we cannot wait to see what she does next.

Brita by the numbers 
  • Olympic bronze medal at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games
  • Three Winter Olympic Games (Sochi, 2014; PyeongChang, 2018; Beijing, 2022)
