Fog, squalls in the starting area, snowfall – the alpine ski ladies literally fought their way through the second giant slalom in Mont Tremblant, where Federica Brignone made the headlines. The Italian won both races and shouted her great joy with a “Yes!” out. “I risked a lot and won everything,” said the 33-year-old, who had the upper hand on Sunday ahead of Lara Gut-Behrami (Sui/+0.33) and Mikaela Shiffrin (USA/+0.39).

Like the day before, the Austrians missed the top ten, more than two eleventh places for Franziska Gritsch on Saturday (quote: “I’m not happy with that at all”) and Katharina Liensberger yesterday didn’t jump out. “I’m actually quite happy. We might have to drive a little bit cleaner and pull off the turns properly,” said the Vorarlberg native.

Total failure in Beaver Creek

The ski men have never experienced a start to the season like this. After the total failure on the Matterhorn and the cancellation of the opening giant slalom in Sölden, all three speed races in Beaver Creek were also canceled due to bad weather. After the two downhill runs, the Super-G on the “Birds of Prey” could not take place either. Like the day before, there was too much wind in the ski resort in the US state of Colorado.

The travelers return from North America to Europe without having achieved anything. ÖSV Alpine Director Herbert Mandl expected a complicated return journey given the onset of winter in Europe. “It will certainly be turbulent if everyone really gets back to Europe on time.”

The next stop for the men next weekend is Val d’Isere, where a giant slalom is scheduled to take place on Saturday and a slalom on Sunday. Of the six planned men’s competitions, only the slalom in Gurgl, where Austria’s slalom artists celebrated a brilliant triple success, took place as scheduled.
