Mikaela Shiffrin continues to hang on to her lead in the fight for the overall Crystal Globe, sitting 56 points ahead of Slovakian rival Petra Vlhova after finishing ninth in Saturday's slalom in Are, Sweden.

Vlhova, who has already clinched the overall slalom title, finished just off the podium in fourth, 0.25 seconds off of the day's winner, Katharina Liensberger. Norway's Mina Fuerst Holtmann finished second, followed by Switzerland's Michelle Gisin in third. This is the first women's World Cup slalom since January of 2016 in which neither Shiffrin nor Vlhova finished on the podium. 

"I felt okay with some of my skiing but never really found good timing," Shiffrin commented. "In the end I liked the feeling of my first run better than my second. But my skiing is feeling good and even in my warm-ups today, it's feeling pretty on point, but its just a matter of doing it the right way in the races and today it wasn't quite there, that's for sure."

"The [giant slalom] last night took the most energy I had out of any race this season. It was a short time to recover for today's race," she added. "But I think it's pretty typical once the season goes on that towards the end you start to feel it a little bit."

Fellow American, Paula Moltzan, also had a strong showing in the slalom despite competing in the giant slalom the previous evening. She finished 11th overall, 0.21 seconds behind Shiffrin. AJ Hurt did not qualify for a second run. 

Next week, the women head into the final races of the season at the World Cup finals in Courchevel, France. The battle for the overall crystal globe will come down to the wire for Shiffrin and Vlhova, as the two will compete in the four major disciplines, slalom, giant slalom, super G, and downhill, in hopes of claiming the highest honor of the World Cup season.

River Radamus led the way for the American men to score his first points at the Kranjska Gora giant slalom, finishing 16th overall after making a few agile recoveries to stay in the mix. Tommy Ford followed suit, hanging on to finish 22nd in his return to the World Cup stage. 

Radamus, who sat a second off the pace after the first run in 11th, put up a big fight to hang on in the second run and in the first of the Kranjska Gora giant slalom series. While he wasn't quite happy with the way he skied in both runs, the 24-year-old is happy to have scored his first points at the legendary venue.

"I didn't feel like I skied up to my ability level on either run, really," said Radamus. "Left too much time out there, and skied a little too defensive I think. But I felt like I made some really good recoveries and walking away with points is always a good thing."

Ford, who made his official return to racing during the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games after a long recovery from injury, was also satisfied with his point-scoring finish. 

"Overall I thought I skied pretty well and made some pretty big mistakes," commented Ford. "First run I didn't really quite get it going out of the start and really paid for it on a couple of gates. But my knee felt good throughout the run so I was able to build up some confidence as I went down. Kranjska is a great place to get back at it after not racing World Cup for a while. It's been a battle with the head, definitely some fear involved, but also some joy as well. I just need to lean into the joy part of it more." 

Norway's Henrik Kristoffersen took home the first win of the weekend, followed by fellow countryman, Lucas Braathen, who tied for second with Switzerland's Marco Odermatt.

American George Steffey did not finish his first run, while Patrick Kenney, Bridger Gile, and Brian McLaughlin did not qualify for a second run.

Olympic silver medalist Jaelin Kauf led five U.S. Freestyle Ski Team women into the top 10, finishing third in Saturday’s FIS Freestyle World Cup dual moguls in Chiesa In Valmalenco, Italy.

“It was a good day for Jaelin and a good day for the whole team,” said U.S. Freestyle Team World Cup Coach Riley Campbell. “Everyone skied really well, and Jaelin set the standard, just skiing like a savvy veteran.”

Kauf defeated teammate Kia Owens in the small final, who unfortunately crashed but is okay to grab the final podium spot. Owens finished fourth, Hannah Soar finished seventh, Tess Johnson eighth, and Olivia Giaccio in 10th. Elizabeth Lemley was 13th.

Despite a weather delay at the start, Kauf maintained her focus and put down some clean, fast runs while having fun at the same time.

"It’s good to carry that momentum (from the Games), and I think more than that, it’s just carrying the mental attitude I had at the Olympics of leaving it all out there and mostly just having fun out here," she said.

For the U.S. men, Cole McDonald was the top finisher in sixth. Dylan Walczyk was 11th, Brad Wilson 12th, and Nick Page was 14th.

Up next, the FIS World Cup Freestyle moguls season wraps up in Megeve, France, March 18-19, with an individual moguls competition under the lights on Saturday, March 18, and a final dual moguls competition on Sunday, March 19.

Diggins Third, Leads Five into Top 20 in Falun

Jessie Diggins wrapped up the FIS Cross Country World Cup season on the podium in third and led an outstanding day for the Davis U.S. Cross Country Team with five athletes finishing in the top 20 Saturday in Falun, Sweden.

“All I really wanted was to end the season feeling like I was able to go out there and fight as hard as I could,” said Diggins, who sat out last weekend’s 30k Holmenkollen Skifestival in Norway after still feeling fatigued from her silver-medal finish in the 30k at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games.  “(Today) was less about the results and more about having that really great feeling. But of course, it was really special to end the season with a podium.”

In the women’s 10k individual start freestyle, Norway’s Therese Johaug grabbed one final career victory, winning by more than 35 seconds over Sweden’s Jonna Sundling in second. Diggins was just four hundredths of a second behind Sundling in third. Rosie Brennan was eighth, and Julia Kern posted a World Cup career-best distance result, finishing 20th. Caitlin Paterson was 31st, and Rosie Frankowski was 41st.

In the men’s 15k individual start freestyle, Scott Patterson posted a career-best World Cup result in seventh, and Zak Ketterson scored his first career World Cup points in 15th. Adam Martin was 44th, Logan Hanneman 52nd, and Peter Holmes 68th.

“​​It was a great race where the important factors came together,” Ketterson said. “My body felt solid, skis were really good, and I paced the race pretty well.”

“I am not super surprised, honestly," Ketterson added. "Distance racing was such a big focus during my five years in the NCAA, so I came into the season with a lot of confidence in both distance and sprint racing. It feels really good to score points, and I hope I can do it again soon!”

Norway’s Didrik Toenseth took the 15k victory in 31 minutes, 57 seconds. Sweden’s Calle Halfvarsson was second, and Norway’s Harald Oestberg Amundsen was third.

With the final individual races of the season in the books, Diggins finished second in the overall World Cup standings, Brennan was 14th, and Kern was 20th. 

“It was really special to finish second in the overall World Cup,” Diggins said. “That is something that I am very proud of because it represents a lot of hard work and a lot of consistently giving it everything I have every time I raced. That was really special to share with the team, the coaches, and the wax techs. Overall, I’m very happy and satisfied, and proud of the season. I’m definitely still processing it…but for me, it was a season where I came in with very concrete goals about my preparation, both physically, and mentally, for the Olympics - and that was the big target. But to be able to have some World Cup wins, and some World Cup podiums was really just the icing on the cake.”

In the overall World Cup sprint standings, Diggins was fourth, Kern eighth, and Brennan was 12th. 

“There were some really strong moments for me throughout the season and my consistency was better than ever,” Brennan said. “That is something I'm really happy about because being on the road for so long has been a challenge for me in the past. We have one last team event tomorrow that should be a great way to close out the World Cup season.”

The World Cup season concludes Sunday with the first-ever mixed team relay and mixed team sprint. The mixed team relay will consist of four 5k freestyle technique laps in the following order: woman/man/man/woman. Each nation will be allowed to enter two teams. Each country may enter two teams for the mixed team sprint, and athletes will each ski a one-lap qualifier (in interval start). The times of both skiers will be cumulated, and the 20 best teams are qualified for the finals.

Sunday’s mixed relay for the Davis U.S. Cross Country Team will consist of Brennan, Ketterson, Scott Patterson, and Diggins.

Shiffrin Earns 12th Season Podium In Are Giant Slalom

By Mackenzie Moran
March, 11 2022

Mikaela Shiffrin earned her 12th podium of the season, punching in at third under the lights in Are, Sweden on Friday. Shiffrin sat in sixth after her first run and was able to hang on throughout what she described as a “wild” course. As the night went on, spring-like skiing conditions became bumpier and more difficult to navigate. Sara Hector, who had the chance to clinch the giant slalom crystal globe, skied out near the top of the course on her second run. Michele Gisin and Tessa Worley suffered a few large mistakes that pushed them out of podium position. At the end of the race, Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova claimed first, 1.24 seconds ahead of Italy’s Marta Bassino in second, and Shiffrin, who moved up into third.

“I felt like my skiing [in the second run] had a bit more fire, and I had mostly hoped I wouldn’t move back a bit, so it’s quite incredible to have moved up a couple of places,” said Shiffrin.

Shiffrin’s podium finish allowed her to stay ahead of Vlhova in the race for the overall Crystal Globe, as well as in the mix of the top three in the giant slalom standings. Vlhova’s win decreased the overall margin a touch. The duo now sits 77 points apart in the standings. In Saturday’s slalom, Shiffrin will look to keep up the fight, knowing that both she and Vlhova have little recovery time before another day of racing on spring-like conditions.

Teammates Paula Moltzan and AJ Hurt also managed to conquer the bumpy conditions and complete both runs. Moltzan finished 22nd, and Hurt finished 23rd. 

The women have a quick turnaround headed into Saturday’s slalom, will in the morning start at 10:30 a.m. CET following Friday’s giant slalom night race. Shiffrin will continue to fight to stay on top of the overall standings in the final race prior to World Cup Finals in Courchevel, France, next week.

Kern Fourth in Falun World Cup Classic Sprint

By Tom Horrocks
March, 11 2022

Julia Kern doesn’t want the FIS Cross Country World Cup season to end. Especially after nearly missing her second career podium, finishing fourth, in Friday’s classic sprint in Falun, Sweden.

“I don’t want the season to end now!” Kern said. “We have been on the road for a long time, but I finally feel like I’m hitting my stride, and the pieces are coming together, so my overall feeling is a bit bittersweet right now. I am really happy with the way I skied today and all of the hard work from the whole staff!”

Racing on soft, spring snow, Kern qualified in 17th following a solid week of training and honing in on race tactics with her coaching staff. She won her opening quarterfinal heat, then took another victory in the semifinal heat to advance to the finals for the second time this season. In the semifinals, Kern edged World Cup leader Maja Dahlqvist at the line for the victory. However, in the finals, Dahlqvist got the better of Kern.

“I gave it all I had today in every round and charged hard to break away at the top of the downhill in the final,” Kern said. “It was bittersweet to have the podium slip through my fingers, but it keeps the hunger alive and gives me the confidence that I am right there. I don’t think I would have changed anything and am psyched to execute a day I am proud of on one of the trickiest courses on the World Cup. It was extra special to have my parents here in person to cheer me on; it seems they bring me good luck and energy!”

Olympic gold medalist Jonna Sundling of Sweden, who sat out the first part of the season due to injury, took her second-straight World Cup sprint win in commanding style, finishing more than eight seconds ahead of Slovenia’s Anamarija Lampic in second and nine seconds ahead of Dalhqvist in third. Kern’s fourth-place result matched her season-best, a fourth-place finish in the freestyle sprint from stage 1 of the FIS Tour de Ski in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.

Rosie Brennan, who qualified seventh, finished 16th. And Jessie Diggins, who qualified 18th, finished 19th.

“I had a good qualifier, and that gave me some confidence for the heats,” Brennan said, adding that the Falun course is quite challenging with some technical downhill sections. “I struggled to find space to move on the uphills, which is my strength, and that ultimately cost me moving on to the semifinals by less than a second.”

The women race a 10k freestyle Saturday, where Caitlin Patterson and Rosie Frankowski will join Kern, Brennan, and Diggins. The U.S. men who will compete in Saturday's 15k freestyle are Scott Patterson, Logan Hanneman, Zak Ketterson, Peter Holmes, and Adam Martin. 

The World Cup season concludes Sunday with the first-ever mixed team relay and mixed team sprint. The mixed team relay will consist of four 5k freestyle technique laps in the following order: woman/man/man/woman. Each nation will be allowed to enter two teams, and participating athletes will each ski a one-lap qualifier (in interval start). The times of all skiers will be cumulated, and the 20 best teams are qualified for the finals.

Sunday’s mixed team sprint and relay lineups for the Davis U.S. Cross Country Team will be determined Saturday afternoon. All events will stream live on NBC’s Peacock platform.

Deer Valley Resort Steps In To Host Toyota U.S. Freestyle Championships March 26-27

U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced today that Deer Valley Resort has stepped up to host the 2022 Toyota U.S. Freestyle Championships March 26-27, which includes moguls and dual moguls competition.

The U.S. Freestyle Championships were originally slated for Palisades Tahoe. However, Mother Nature didn’t deliver the snow needed to build a world-class moguls course on the lower mountain venue site. Palisades Tahoe pulled out all the stops to make snow during a tight snowmaking window, but unfortunately due to unforeseen challenges, was not able to produce the snow needed to build the course. Palisades Tahoe has been committed to U.S. Freestyle Championships since before the COVID-19 pandemic. On very short notice, Deer Valley agreed to host the event. 

“We certainly appreciated the dedication from both Deer Valley and Palisades Tahoe in supporting the athletes and the development of freestyle skiing,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard President and CEO Sophie Goldschmidt. “Both resorts are outstanding partners and supporters of U.S. Ski & Snowboard, and we certainly could not provide the best athletes in the world with world class venues to showcase their talents without the strong support from both Deer Valley Resort and Palisades Tahoe.”

“Deer Valley is honored to step in and host the 2022 U.S. Freestyle Championships on our 2002 Olympic and World Cup mogul ski run.” said Alterra Mountain Company COO Mark Brownlie.  “We look forward to hosting the athletes and supporting them as they close out their competition season.” 

Athletes will compete on the same course used for January’s Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International - the only domestic stop on the FIS Freestyle World Cup tour. For the athletes of the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team, a majority of whom call Park City and Utah home, the Toyota U.S. Freestyle Championships will once again provide a homecoming event following a long World Cup and Olympic season.

The competition will include individual moguls championships on Saturday, March 26, and dual moguls championships on Sunday, March 27. 2022 Olympic silver medalist Jaelin Kauf is expected to compete, as is three-time Olympian and Deer Valley athlete Brad Wilson. Olympians Olivia Giaccio and Hannah Soar will also cap their season at U.S. Freestyle Championships.

1:30 - 2:55 p.m. Women’s moguls qualification

Saturday, March 26

Career-Best Seventh For Winters in Flachau Night Slalom

By Megan Harrod
March, 9 2022

Luke Winters scored a career-best seventh place on Wednesday night in under the lights in Flachau, Austria, the final FIS Ski World Cup slalom prior to World Cup Finals. 

The race, originally scheduled to take place in Zagreb, Croatia, thrived under the lights in front of a wild Austrian crowd. Norway’s Atle McGrath won his first-ever World Cup, followed by Olympic champion Clement Noel in France in second, 0.29 seconds off the pace, and Swiss Daniel Yule in third, .64 out. 

With his victory, McGrath became one of eight men to win a World Cup slalom this season. Teammate Henrik Kristoffersen became the first to claim multiple wins last weekend in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany with his back-to-back wins. Half of those eight World Cup slalom winners have been Norwegian, including teammates Lucas Braathen (Wengen, Switzerland) and Sebastian Foss-Solevaag (Madonna di Campiglio, Italy).

Winters skied a solid and smart first run, sitting in 18th, a promising position to move up in the second run. He skied with tactic and confidence in the second run to gain significant time and move up the leaderboard. "First run I wasn't totally sure...in Garmisch I had some trouble, but I had a decent training block between the two races," Winters reflected. "I wasn't totally sure how I'd feel coming out of the gate first run, but I found my rhythm and had some really good sections on the first run, and kind of took that confidence into the second run and was just super focused and knew what I had to do."

With his seventh place, Winters also stamped his ticket to World Cup Finals—in which the top 25 ranked in each discipline will compete to close out the season. He ended up in a three-way tie for 24th place in the standings. "Obviously, with a little added pressure to really push it to try to get to Finals, I knew I had to do that," he said. "It feels good to also barely make Finals - I think I was tied for 24th, so even if I had gotten eighth I would not have made it, so that feels good. Psyched on my best career result and looking forward to one more chance at Finals."

Alex Leever did not qualify for the second run. Ben Ritchie and Jett Seymour also started for the Americans but did not finish the first run. 

Kristoffersen maintained his lead in the slalom standings, with 371 points over teammate Lucas Braathen with 323 points. Germany’s Linus Strasser is sitting in third with 307 points, and Austria’s Manuel Feller has 301 points. With one slalom remaining at World Cup Finals, anything can happen. Swiss Marco Odermatt, who does not ski slalom, maintained his healthy lead in the overall standings, with 1,239 points heading into the double giant slalom weekend in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. 

Up next, the tech men travel to Kranjska Gora for back-to-back giant slalom races on Saturday and Sunday before traveling to World Cup Finals in Courchevel/Meribel.
