After winning the first five slaloms on Killington’s Superstar course, Mikaela Shiffrin, the career leader in World Cup victories, will be looking to reclaim the top spot this weekend when World Cup racers return to Vermont for the seventh time since 2016 to compete in the Killington Cup.
Sweden’s Anna Swenn Larsson and Switzerland’s Wendy Holdener tied for the win a year ago. Lara Gut-Behrami of Switzerland won the giant slalom by seven-hundredths of a second.
While Shiffrin, whose résumé includes 89 career World Cup victories, five overall World Cup season titles and two Olympic gold medals, is the star of the show, the Burke Mountain Academy product is far from the only U.S. skier worth checking out.
Paula Moltzan grew up in Minnesota but resides in Charlemont, Mass. She was 15th overall and seventh in the slalom points list a year ago. Allie Resnick skied collegiately at Dartmouth, and sisters Elisabeth and Mary Bocock were slated to make their World Cup debut in Sölden.
