After sustaining an injury in the parallel slalom in St. Moritz this past weekend, team USA member Resi Stiegler will sit out the next few races due to a minor right knee injury.
In February 2018, Stiegler incurred a bucket tear in her meniscus during her slalom run at the Olympics in PyeongChang, an injury that took her out for the rest of the season. The Jackson Hole native has had plenty of injuries before and knows when to listen to her body. This time around she’s feeling positive and ready to take the time she needs to heal before she gets back on snow.

Three-time Olympian @resistiegler sustained a minor right knee injury in @st.moritzskiworldcup during the parallel slalom that will sideline her for the foreseeable future. // “My knee is feeling good and I’m feeling hopeful, but I won’t be ready to compete in the races over the holidays. I am sad to miss some of my absolute favorite venues on tour, especially Courchevel and Zagreb, but I don’t want to compete unless I feel strong enough and know I’m in a place where I can get the results I know I’m capable of: top 10 finishes. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere. I will be back and I will continue to fight!” 🐯
