The Aspen Winternational FIS Women's Alpine World Cup Slalom had its second day of races yesterday. While Tessa Worley of France took the top honors on Saturday, Maria Pietilae-Holmner and Sweden took the top spot yesterday. She finished the course in 1:46.19, which was .68 of a second faster than German Maria Riesch. Finland's Tanja Poutiainen rounded out the top three. It was another day of very technical and difficult skiing. The clouds made an appearance for most of the day, making the light flat and the course extra hard. The course was already hard enough, as the race crew again made a fast and technical course. Improving on her disastrous day on Saturday, Lindsey Vonn made it into 8th place on Sunday with a time of 1:47.63. Heli skiing BC Canada
The men and women's FIS World Cup tours were on display this weekend, the men in Lake Louise, Canada, and the women in Aspen. The athletes now get a few days of rest before more or less swapping locations. The women move on to Lake Louise for some Downhill and Super G, while the men go to Beaver Creek in the U.S. for Super G, Downhill, and Giant Slalom. While the athletes have a bit of a pause, the snow throughout the western U.S. and Canada certainly doesn't seem to be taking much of a break. With many resorts in North America already having topped 100ft of snow, this season is looking like it will be a big one.
