Mikaela Shiffrin followed up a strong first year on the World Cup tour with a successful defense of her title in slalom at the U.S. Alpine Championships in Winter Park.

How good was Shiffrin? The native of nearby Eagle-Vail had a two-run time on Wednesday (March 28) that topped second-place Hailey Duke of Idaho by more than a second.  Read more at the Denver Post and U.S. Ski Team website.

In the Men’s Slalom on Thursday (March 29), Tommy Ford of Oregon topped the podium. Find out the other top finishers and what racer retired in the Denver Post.

Competition continues on Friday with Men’s and Women’s Super G. On Saturday, the biggest names in American women’s skiing will hit the slopes when Shiffrin competes in the giant slalom against  reigning World Cup overall champion Lindsey Vonn of Vail and Julia Mancusowho finished fourth overall on the tour this season.

The event concludes Sunday with the Men’s Giant Slalom, featuring Ted Ligety, who just missed defending his GS title this season.
