Both Ben Ritchie and Luke Winters scored points for the United States in Tuesday's slalom under the lights in Schladming, Austria. 

Ritchie entered the second run sitting in 11th, wearing bib 44 – the highest-ranked bib that qualified for the second run. Some trouble on the course led him to end the day in 23rd, the first World Cup points of his career. Ritchie, who started his first World Cup in 2019, had struggled to finish a World Cup slalom until Tuesday.

"I feel pretty good after a long season of DNF's so far," said Ritchie. "I was happy with the first run and second run I was skiing well, had some mistakes...but it's nice to get some points under my belt and pick up a little momentum. But now that slalom January is over, I have to wait for a little while."

Winters, representing the U.S. men's slalom team at the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, finished the day in 26th after edging his way into the flip. First run, Winters finished 30th.

In a magnificent conclusion to the men's jam-packed "slalom January," Linus Strasser became the first German ever to win the Schladming night slalom. Norway's Atle McGrath earned his first World Cup podium finishing second. Manuel Feller dominated the second run, jumping ahead 25 positions to end the day in third after finishing 28th first run.

Fellow American Jett Seymour did not finish. George Steffey and Alex Leever did not qualify for a second run.

Men's alpine will return to the World Cup circuit following Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, kicking off with two slalom races in Garmisch-Partenkirchen the weekend of Feb. 26-27.
