World Cup at Killington

Mikaela Shiffrin celebrates her slalom win Sunday.

When bringing a weekend of women’s World Cup alpine ski racing from Europe to Killington, VT, was proposed, Eastern skiers all but guaranteed that they’d show up to cheer, and Killington guaranteed snow to race on. After all it would be the first women’s World Cup race in Vermont for 38 years. They all delivered Saturday and Sunday, when crowds estimated at up to 15,000 flooded the base of Killington’s Superstar trail. American Mikaela Shiffrin, who learned ski racing at Vermont’s Burke Mountain Academy, also delivered, by winning Sunday’s slalom. Spectators included her 95-year-old grandmother.
