The White Circus is back in Aspen. The Women's World Cup is back in Fat City for another sesh. Aspen is the only FIS Skiing world Cup on U.S. soil. It's always just after Thanksgiving and it's always a highlight for the American Girls.
It's probably unprecedented in American skiing that two ladies are among the favorites to capture the over-all World Cup title. LINDSEY VONN has been there done that. She's the most decorated American ski racer of all time and is vying for the most World Cup Globes (trophies) of anyone, ever.
At the U.S. Ski Team Press conference, Lindsey seemed supremely confident. She said "travelling with globes is easier when you don't have to fly with them" in reference to next season's World Cup Finals in Aspen. She also admitted that she built a new trophy case that leaves room for a few more globes.
MIKAELA SHIFFRIN the 20 year old darling of American Skiing is also in the running for the overall championship. She's the clear favorite in Slalom. She's always a top seed in GS and now she's adding the speed events to her repertoire.
Veteran free spirit Resi Steigler and new ladies coach Paul Kristofic also participated in the presser...along with a whole slew of AVSC Groms.
When the fastest chicks on sticks hit Aspen...you know it's ski season. Let's Ride!!
