After two long weekends in Beaver Creek and Lake Louise for both the men and the women of the World Cup, Sean Higgins and Mackenzie Moran had a lot to analyze. Both writers were on the ground at last week’s races, experiencing the action up close and personal.

The men competed in downhill, super-G, and giant slalom, while the women had two days of downhill and one day of super-G. On the men’s side of the tour saw a couple of shake-ups in terms of podiums this week, with career-best finishes by 22-year-old Marco Odermatt in the super-G and Tommy Ford in the giant slalom. The women’s side of the tour also had a couple of “unexpected” results, as Ester Ledecka won the first day of the downhill (another career-best finish) and a couple of women had break-through results in both the super-G and the downhill.

All-in-all, who do we think will make a play for top spots in the disciplines contested this weekend? Well, it’s up for debate.
