American Tommy Ford won his career first Wold Cup on Sunday in front of a home crowd in Beaver Creek, Colorado, taking the giant slalom by a whopping 0.80 seconds. Snow and fog proved to be a challenge for the entirety of the race but the Oregon native managed to adapt and charge his way to victory.

Ford finished nearly a full second ahead of a pair of Norwegians with Henrik Kristoffersen and Leif Kristian Nestvold-Haugen in second and third place, 0.80 and 1.23 seconds back, respectively.
