Thanksgiving Weekend bought a fun weekend of racing on Aspen Mountain as the top women racers in the world gathered for the World Cup slalom and giant slalom events. It was a preview of racers we will see at the Winter Olympics coming up in February. It was great racing, but not the best for our United States girls. None made it onto the podium on either day, but the crowds were enthusiastic, the weather mostly sunny and bright and the racing was fast. What a weekend!
