It might not have a perfect weekend for the U.S. Ski Team, but it was pretty close. On Sunday Lindsay Vonn won a Super-G in Lake Louise, Alberta, just a few hours before Ted Ligety won a Giant Slalom on the Birds of Prey course at Beaver Creek.

It wasn’t all Vonn: Julia Mancuso climbed the Super G podium with a third-place finish. Vonn was close to a triple play, coming in second to Austria’s Maria Riesch in downhills on Friday and Saturday. Vonn also did her best to improve the Lake Louise course for the women’s next visit, voicing concern about dangerous conditions.

It wasn’t a great weekend for Bode Miller. After Friday’s downhill was postponed owing to high wind, he skied off the course on Saturday in the Super G and then ran 27th in Sunday’s GS.
