Our heroes are always here after Sochi! In Are, Anémone Marmottan has signed her first World Cup podium with a 2nd place in Giant Slalom. “It can't believe it. I just got my first podium and still can't realize what's going on. I am not going to celebrate because another GS awaits us tomorrow and I give it all to win that one.”  In 8th position after the first run, the French racer has realized a strong run and deserved this podium after two 5th places and two 4th places the last four years.
Lara Gut has taken the third place to a tie with Austrian’s Eva-Maria Brem. The Swiss racer confirmed her rank in this discipline, celebrating her third podium this season after her victory in Sölden and her second place in Val d’Isère.

During the second giant slalom, Anna Fenninger has shown one more time that she was the strongest this weekend. But Sweden's Jessica Lindell Vikarby from Rossignol Team ended third at home and kept her leader rank. The battle for the Giant Slalom crystal globe will be crazy next week in Lenzerheide during the finals between Lindell Vikarby – 432 points - and Fenninger – 418 points.
In slalom, Maria Pietilae-Holmner came back on the podium after complicated races these last weeks. She took the second place behind the winner of the slalom crystal globe Mikaela Shiffrin and ahead of her two teammates, Anna Swenn-Larsson and Frida Hansdotter.
