Felix Neureuther, 3. Naoki Yuasa. For Rossignol, Leif Kristian Haugen signs his best career result in slalom with the 8th place and a high bib (35). Henrik Kristoffersen continues his learning of World Cup and for the second time this year after Levi (11th), he enters to Top 15 (14th).

Wednesday, December 19th : Giant Slalom W

The first run of the night giant slalom of Are wasn’t easy for all the girls. After the race, Tessa Worley said that she missed her first run because of a too much aggressive skiing (8th). She corrected her mistakes and won the second run. But it wasn’t enough to catch the 3rd place of the podium. She finally ends off to the podium. Viktoria Rebensburg wins ahead of Anna Fenninger and Tina Maze, who doesn’t win for the five in a row the Giant Slalom.
Frida Hansdotter confirms her good shape with a new 5th place after Courchevel. Her Swedish teammate, Jessica Lindell-Vikarby, finishes 8th.
