Mikaela Shiffrin closed out her slalom season with one last win after having clinched her sixth slalom crystal globe prior to her final race in Soldeu. The 24-year-old leads the overall standings with 2,104 total points and 16 total wins over the course of the season.

Wendy Holdener fought hard for the potential to win her first individual World Cup race but fell seven hundredths short after leading in the first run, settling for second. Holdener is ranked third in the slalom standings and will take home a bronze medal for the 2018/19 season.

Petra Vlhova finished 1.20 seconds off of Shiffrin’s winning time in third and will take home a silver for the season as runner-up to Shiffrin in the slalom standings.

Sweden’s Frida Hansdotter fought hard to finish in the top five in the last slalom race of her 15-year career on the World Cup tour. She was the only other woman to have won a slalom crystal globe, other than Shiffrin, in the past seven years.
