The U.S. Ski Team, captained by Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, CO), Julia Mancuso (Squaw Valley, CA), David Chodounsky (Crested Butte, CO) and Tim Jitloff (Reno, NV), powered to second in the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup Finals Nations Team Event Friday. Anchored by Shiffrin and Chodounsky, who won every dual on the faster blue course, the team rolled past France in the opening round and Austria in the semifinal before losing on a tie break to Switzerland in the final. Individual racing continues Saturday with men’s giant slalom where Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety (Park City, UT) is in the hunt for a career fifth GS crown and women’s slalom, which Shiffrin wrapped up the title last week in Sweden.
