PARK CITY, Utah (Nov. 16, 2017) - Alpine ski racing has a long history of success in America. But how is it positioned for the future? U.S. Ski & Snowboard, the governing body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding in America, is initiating evolutionary changes in how it will approach alpine ski racing with an eye on results at the 2022 and 2026 Olympics. The recommendations come after a nearly two-year analysis resulting in a program direction that will bring changes to team selection and development philosophy.
LEVI, Finland (Nov. 11, 2017) – Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, Colo.) grabbed her 33rd FIS Ski World Cup slalom podium, and moved into the overall World Cup lead after finishing second by just 0.10, in the season-opening slalom Saturday in Levi.
Petra Vlhova (Slovakia) skied an aggressive second run to win her third World Cup slalom and her second-straight victory over Shiffrin dating back to last season’s World Cup Finals slalom in Aspen, Colo. Wendy Holdener (Switzerland) rounded out the podium in third.
This weekend marks the 2017-18 FIS World Cup slalom kickoff in Levi, Finland for both the men and the women. Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, Colo.) will go for her third win on Lapland soil—and therefore her third reindeer to join the herd along with Rudolph (2013) and Sven (2016). Listen to Shiffrin's thoughts ahead of Saturday's race.

NEW YORK (Nov. 3, 2017) - A tense energy wafted across the starlit ballroom in New York City’s Ziegfeld Theater Thursday. A day earlier, the Times Square countdown clock ticked down to just 100 days until the opening ceremony of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang. As almost three dozen U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes gathered for the New York Gold Medal Gala, one theme was omnipresent: It was go time.
