Hanna Faulhaber led the day for the U.S. Freeski Team with a third-place finish in the first halfpipe contest of the Calgary World Cup. 

In classic Faulhaber fashion, she started off her runs with a straight air blunt - reaching an amplitude that is higher than most of the competitors on the circuit. Landing clean left cork nine's and left seven mute's, Faulhaber had what it took to land on the podium with Canada's Rachael Karker and China's Eileen Gu, who was back in competition after 11.5 months. 

Teammate Riley Jacobs, who made the halfpipe finals for the first time in her career, finished the contest in sixth place. Jacobs, who did not fall once in her three runs through the finals, landed clean tricks throughout the entire pipe. Only 19 years old, Jacobs is hungry for more. 

"I could not be more excited about tonight," said Jacobs. "I put down one of my best runs and really felt like I was able to show what I have been working on. After not only making my first finals but bumping up to sixth place, I could not be more pumped. The vibes are mindblowing!"

On the men's side, five men made the halfpipe finals, making up 50% of the finalists. Alex Ferreira led the way, finishing the evening in fourth place after being bumped out of third last minute. However, Ferreira's third run was one of the highest of the days, but Canada's Simon D'Artois edged him out of third place by less than a point, respectively. In the top ten, the U.S. men had a strong showing. In fifth was David Wise, sixth was Birk Irving, seventh was Aaron Blunk, and ninth for Hunter Hess. With the contest ending late into the evening, the athletes will have time to rest before the competition resumes on Jan. 21st.

PARK CITY, Utah (Jan. 17, 2023) – U.S. Ski & Snowboard and Stifel Financial (“Stifel”) (NYSE:SF) announced today a broadening of its partnership to include the sponsorship of a number of elite-level and development events, as well as new and enhanced financial awards for top performers.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Stifel-U.S. Ski & Snowboard partnership now includes:

  • World Cup Naming Rights: In a season with the most World Cups on U.S. soil, Stifel now has naming rights of three FIS Ski World Cup alpine events in the United States, becoming the title sponsor of the Stifel Palisades Tahoe Cup and Stifel America’s Downhill at Aspen, and the Stifel Killington Cup.
  • Stifel U.S. Alpine Series: The partnership debuts the Stifel U.S. Alpine Series, which encompasses a series of U.S. alpine events from development to elite levels, including the U.S.-based World Cups, the Stifel Success NorAm Tour and Toyota U.S. Championships presented by Stifel. 
  • Increased Prize Money: The partnership also includes the addition of prize money for American podium finishers at the Stifel Success NorAm Tour and increased prize money for American podium finishers at the Toyota U.S. Alpine Championships. 
  • Stifel Alpine Awards: Stifel is now the title sponsor of the Rookie of the Year, Most Improved Athlete, Best Comeback, Athlete of the Year and Coach of the Year awards, and the firm will provide monetary gifts for alpine athletes and coaches as part of the re-named awards.

“We are very excited to have Stifel’s financial support for our alpine program, from the title sponsorship of three U.S. World Cups to increasing prize money for our athletes,” said Sophie Goldschmidt, President and CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard. “The announcement of the naming of the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team beginning this season through 2026 was the most significant alpine partnership in U.S. Ski & Snowboard history and we could not be more thrilled to already be building upon the initial relationship. Having Stifel’s support allows us to invest further in multiple areas moving forward.” 

The new partnership marries two brands that share common values, including precision, success and partnership. As the title sponsor of the Stifel Success U.S. NorAm Tour and the presenting partner of the Toyota U.S. Alpine Championships presented by Stifel all the way up to the World Cup level, Stifel is committed to supporting athletes at every milestone of their careers, helping them find the tools to be successful in their futures. 

“Stifel is a firm where success meets success,” said Stifel Chairman and CEO Ronald J. Kruszewski. “Since investing in the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team, we have seen incredible success from our U.S. athletes and could not be more thrilled to support all levels of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard alpine programs, as well as the World Cups in the states.”

“Stifel has supported our team immensely this season and is now showing that it is supporting our team and our sport at almost every level,” said 2022 Olympic silver medalist and Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Ryan Cochran-Siegle. “I want to thank Stifel for helping our sport reach new heights at both the development level and elite level.”

Wright Top 20, Winters Top 30 in Tough World Cup Conditions

The Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team was back in action Sunday with a women’s super-G in St. Anton, Austria and a men’s slalom in Wengen, Switzerland. In St. Anton, Bella Wright lead the way for the women with a 19th place, moving up from bib 42. Luke Winters was the top U.S. man, taking 24th place and scoring World Cup points. 

“It was a bumpy ride," said Wright. "It was dark and a really tough day overall. I am really happy with my skiing down on the bottom; I felt like I was attacking more.”

The super-G win went to Swiss skier Lara Gut-Behrami. Italian skier Frederica Brignone took second, and her teammate Marta Bassino landed in third. Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes Breezy Johnson, Tricia Mangan and Keely Cashman did not finish. The race was forced to end early due to high winds and Lauren Macuga did not start.

Both races had their challenges. It was a dark and bumpy track for the women in Austria and a bumpy then snowy course for the men in Switzerland. Both Winters and Ben Ritchie fought their way through the difficult course to land a second run, but the snow came in causing more challenges to the already difficult day of slalom. Winters fought his way down to the finish in the top 30 in 24th position, while Ritchie did not finish.

“We have had a tough go the last couple of slaloms,” said Winters. “Today I did not ski great first run, but I got two through and World Cup points never hurt. I am looking forward to the next races.”

The winner of the Wengen slalom was Norwegian skier Henrik Kristoffersen, in second Swiss skier Loic Meillard and in third Lucas Braathen of Norway. Jett Seymour did not qualify for a second run. 

The next alpine races include more speed with the women in Cortina, Italy Jan. 20-22 and the men heading to the famous Kitzbuhel track Jan. 20-22.

U.S. Snowboard Team athletes Chris Corning and Dusty Henricksen both landed top-ten finishes in the Big Air contest in Kreischberg, Austria for the fourth snowboard Big Air contest of the season. On the site of the 2015 FIS Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Championships, the jump was in excellent condition for the nighttime event despite the low snowfall across much of Europe. 

Corning finished the day in seventh through three jumps and Henrickson was 10th, respectively. 

On the second run, Corning went big and and landed the top score out of all the competitors and ended the day with a combined score of 307.30 but Japan won the day, with Taiga Hasegawa, Ryoma Kimata and Kira Kimura in first, second and third. 

Going into the contest, Corning was tied with Janne Korpi with seven career World Cup titles, three in slopestyle, two in big air and two overall. Corning was second in the Visa Big Air presented by Toyota in Copper Mountain, Colo., earlier this season and is considered one of the most experienced, talented and driven competitors on the circuit. 

For Henrickson, he is a strong competitor among the strong field of 50 riders and showed his strength finishing in the top 10. 

There were no U.S. women competing in this snowboard Big Air contest.

The Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team was back in action Saturday for more speed races. The men finished the speed portion of the weekend in Wengen, Switzerland with a downhill, while the women were in St. Anton for the first of two super-G races.

“My run was really good on the top and I carried a lot more speed on the road,” said Goldberg. “I was trying to be smooth and find the finish after I crashed hard in Bormio.”

The downhill podium included Norwegian skier Aleksander Kilde who continued his dominant speed skiing with another win. Second place went to Swiss skier Marco Odermatt and Italian skier Mattia Casse was third. The Wengen World Cup continues with a men’s slalom race on Sunday. The speed team will refocus on the next famous speed events in Kitzbuhel, Austria next week.

“I feel good heading into Kitzbuhel," said Goldberg. "Today is something I can build on."

The women’s speed team was in action Saturday with a super-G in St. Anton, Austria. The course had difficult light with many challenging turns and bumps. The Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team women finished with two in the top 30: Bella Wright in 28th and Breezy Johnson in 29th. Keely Cashman landed in 36th and Lauren Macuga in 37th. Tricia Mangan did not finish.

In the Wengen, Switzerland super-G, Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Ryan-Cochran Siegle skied to a fast sixth-place finish, his best super-G result of the season.

“Today's result is good from where I have been at," said 2022 Olympic super-G medalist Cochran-Siegle. "I am trying to build more confidence and become more of a competitor."

The Swiss fans came out in the thousands to cheer on the racers on the infamous Lauberhorn track. The conditions were variable as the sun filtered in and out causing spring-like snow conditions on a straight-set course. There were many course holds as the weather became a larger force for those who ran later.

“I think they did an impressive job with the challenging weather we have had,” said Cochran-Siegle. “I think the fact that Aleksander Kilde ran 15 and was able to come down into first was impressive.”

Norwegian skier Aleksander Kilde continued his hot streak of speed skiing with the win on the Lauberhorn track. Swiss skier Stefan Rogentin took second place on home turf with teammate Marco Odermatt adding more podiums to his name in third place.

Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Travis Ganong was the next best U.S. skier and ended in the top 20, in 17th place. Erik Arvidsson finished in 35th, Kyle Negomir in 39th, Bryce Bennett in 40th and Jared Goldberg did not finish.

The men will switch to downhill on Saturday, followed by a slalom on Sunday. The women’s speed team is in action with two super-Gs this weekend in St. Anton, Austria.

U.S. Freestyle Selection Events Wrap Up with Dual Moguls

The club athletes led the way on the final day of the U.S. Freestyle Selection Events in Winter Park, Colo. Landon Wendler of the Wasatch Freestyle/Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club was atop the podium for the men and Lulu Shaffer of Park City Ski & Snowboard Club/Stratton Mountain School won for the women in the dual moguls competition. Today wasn't all about the podiums - several athletes earned World Cup starts, many of them for the first time, in the upcoming FIS World Cup events in Canada and Utah. 

It was a day to celebrate the young talent in the moguls community, with over ten athletes qualifying for World Cup starts. "I am really excited to have the young athletes involved. I am looking forward to taking them onto the tour and letting them get a taste of World Cup and competing against the best in the world," Coach Bryon Wilson said. "I think we have a really strong team and I look forward to the next competition." 

On the women's side, Shaffer ended the week qualifying for both the Val St-Come World Cup and the Intermountain Health Freestyle International at Deer Valley. "I am so excited! This is something that I have been working towards for a really long time and at most points in my life did not think it would happen. To be here is pretty surreal and I am really grateful," Shaffer said. 

For the men, Wendler was on top, and right there with him was Peyton Billeisen of Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club in second. For Wendler, it may have taken a few years, but he's back in the World Cup circuit qualifying for both Val St-Come and Deer Valley based on his results from the week. "I'm really excited to have the chance again in Deer Valley! It's been a couple of rough years. I feel like I finally earned it, and I made my way back to the World Cup!" 

For Billeisen, he ended the day speechless. "I thought this would take a lot longer," when asked about qualifying for his first-ever World Cup in Deer Valley. "The event started out a little rocky, but I picked it up and... I'm speechless, I don't even know what to say," said Billeisen. 

For the U.S. Freestyle D-Team athletes, Dylan Marcellini and Alli Macuga were both third, respectively. Both in the small final battling it out for the third place, Marcellini competed against Ski and Snowboard Club Vail club athlete, Lucas Nash with Macuga against Park City Ski and Snowboard club athlete, Kylie Kariotis.

Moving forward, athletes will rest over the weekend before either traveling to Canada or training for the next set of competitions.

U.S. Freestyle Athletes Dominate in Winter Park

U.S. Freestyle D-Team athletes are back on top of the podium in Winter Park, Colo., for day two of the U.S. Freestyle Selection Events. Alli Macuga was first for the second time in a row and teammates Dylan Marcellini and Charlie Mickel shared the podium in first and third. 

It was yet another cold and windy day but the U.S. Freestyle Team athletes dug deep and put several Americans within the top ten. 

For the women's event, over 60 competitors took to the mogul course for the second time in three days. With six out of the top ten spots filled by Americans, including club team athletes, the day was officially won by D-team athlete Macuga, who won the same event two days earlier on Jan. 9. Macuga, who reflected on it being "another great day in Winter Park" emphasized how everyone on her team crushed it, staff and coaches included. "Everyone crushed it today. The event was amazing and I am looking forward now to Deer Valley and seeing what I can throw down there."

D-team athlete Kasey Hogg was sixth overall, snagging another top ten result. Club team athletes, Kylie Kariotis and Kassidy Lynch were second and third, respectively. 

On the men's side, Marcellini put all the pieces together and came out on top, winning the first FIS moguls event of his career. "It's hard to even put into words right now. It means so much to come out here and get this done. It's been such a long time coming and I couldn't be happier with how today went," said Marcellini. 

Sharing the podium with Marcellini in third was teammate Mickel, who won the event two days prior. "I am really excited to get another podium today and it feels good to be skiing consistent runs," said Mickel. "Now, I'm looking forward to the World Cups in the future - going to make some more finals, hopefully, take home a dub!" Landon Wender, a club team athlete, was second. 

With the podium results today, Mickel, Marcellini and Macuga have secured spots in the upcoming domestic World Cup, the 2023 Intermountain Health Freestyle International at Deer Valley Resort.
