World Champion Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, CO) dominated the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup opening slalom with a wire-to-wire victory to notch the fifth World Cup win of her young career.
The 18-year-old was the only athlete in the field to post two sub 58-second runs, besting 2010 Olympic champion Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany by a massive 1.06 seconds and reigning World Cup overall champion Tina Maze by 1.61.
The women's World Cup tour now rolls to North America for a downhill, super G and giant slalom Thanksgiving Weekend in Beaver Creek, CO - host of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.
