It is Wendy Holdener’s world in women’s slalom
Holdener now has 47 career World Cup podiums and five career victories on tour.
After the result Shiffrin and Holdener share the lead in the slalom standings, each with two slalom victories to their name this season.
Shiffrin’s second place gives her 123 career World Cup podiums as she chases her 77th World Cup win.
Shiffrin knows this slalom season will not be as easy to dominate as years past. It will take some fight to get through the schedule to stay on the podium.
“I am quite exhausted. I think I had some really good turns and some things to fix for the next slalom. It is a step from Killington and a step in the right direction. It was two really difficult days, there was some really impressive skiing from Wendy (Holdener) and Petra (Vlhova) this weekend,” said Shiffrin.
The American skier made the podium but wanted more.
“I had a lot of fatigue from yesterday. And then we had the award ceremony, which is always very exciting and an honour to be a part of that but, it takes an hour and a half in the evening when you want to be eating or recovering so you just have to take these days and enjoy it. If I am fast enough to be at the award ceremony that is wonderful. You just have to recover the best you can. Today I am mostly happy with my performance but not completely satisfied,” said Shiffrin.
