Maddie Bowman, a seven-year member of the U.S. Freeski Team, announced her retirement from competitive halfpipe freeskiing today. The South Lake Tahoe local is one of the most decorated athletes in her sport and leaves behind a lasting legacy of triumph, perseverance, and progression.
The men finished out the weekend in Wengen, Switzerland with a slalom on one of the trickiest tracks on the FIS Ski World Cup circuit. The Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team men had a tough day, with no Americans qualifying for a second run.
The parallel giant slalom made its debut on the women's FIS Ski World Cup circuit today in Sestriere, Italy, where current overall leader Mikaela Shiffrin extended her lead in the overall despite landing in ninth, and Nina O’Brien finished a career-best 11th place.
Jessie Diggins once again lead the way for the Davis U.S. Cross Country Ski Team in Sunday’s FIS Cross Country World Cup 10k classic pursuit in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic, finishing in 10th. Rosie Brennan was 13th and Sadie Maubet Bjornsen was 20th.
“Today was a much better day for me,” said Rosie, who finished 17th in Saturday’s 10k freestyle. “I had much better energy and really enjoyed skiing today...I feel good that my energy is coming around after the (Tour de Ski) and things are headed in a good direction.”
U.S. Snowboard Pro Team member Taylor Gold rounded out the podium at the 2020 Laax Open halfpipe finals in third place by landing the first-ever double Michalchuk 1080 in snowboard halfpipe competition.
“I was so stoked to put my new trick in a run,” said Taylor. “To end up in third was unreal. It feels like I finally got some redemption for three years of dealing with my knee injury.”
The second FIS Freeski Slopestyle World Cup competition of the 2019-20 season hit Italy’s Seiser Alm resort on Saturday where U.S. Freeski Pro Team member Caroline Claire stomped a bold second run to top the podium.
Under the sunshine in Sestriere, Italy, Mikaela Shiffrin was third Saturday in a giant slalom where just .01—that's one-hundredth of a second—separated three women. Italy's Federica Brignone and Slovakia's Petra Vlhova tied for first.
After heavy snowfall overnight, the sun came out for the 90th anniversary of the Wengen downhill. Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Bryce Bennett put down a blazing run to take seventh place in the downhill—his best finish so far this season.
