In the women's slalom race, the U.S. Ski Team's Kiley Staples (Park City, UT) finished 24th followed by teammate Laurenne Ross (Klamath Falls, OR) in 29th.
"It was a very good second run of slalom for Laurenne who has been more of a speed skier. This performance will boost her confidence in slalom going into the U.S. Championships [at Sugarloaf, ME] and the NorAm Finals [at Lake Placid, NY] coming up in two weeks," Evans added.
Austrian Bernadette Schild won the women's slalom followed by Celina Hangl of Switzerland in second and Nastasia Noens of France in third.
