    1st just about to finish. Snowy and bad viz, shortened track. Not hockeyrink like it usually are. Tough venue anyway and variable snow where the athletes really had to fight for the line in some of the turny sections. Neureuther back today after injury.

    2:nd pretty much same setting as 1:st but a little straighter and faster.

    Too bad about the weather. Love the Face.....such a great hill, even in sub-optimal weather.

    Will be back to discuss in a few hours. Some great skiing and impressive results, some not so great. A few really encouraging steps forward for some....

    Another great day of ski racing!

    Been a long journey, from young and full of promise, to struggling with major injuries. Great to see. Hirscher called it "the toughest GS on the circuit"

    Ford was definitely stoked.
    Hirscher and Shiffrin -- have we ever had 2 such dominant skiers at the same time? Hirscher just slayed that course in crappy conditions
