    Henrik should comfortably take the Slalom title - would have to DNF not to, but Marcel has put just a little bit of pressure on him by taking a big lead after the first run at Kranjska Gora.

    Interestingly also Svindal still has a some chance to win the DH and/or SG titles despite being out injured with 2 races to go in both.

    Marcel wins easily, but Henrik improves to finish second and secure the Slalom title.

    those are respectable outcomes, despite the loss of so many high performers
    I hope next year sees a bit less carnage

    Will be interesting to see who comes back. Anna hopefully, Tina I read hasn't quite decided yet.

    Tina over 30, I think?
    Anna is only 25 or so
    Mikaela is already back and winning again which is great
    not sure what's going on with Lindsey - I'd be disheartened with so many injuries but she's super-tough

    Despite her comments downplaying its significance, I think Lindsey is motivated to recover so she can chase Stenmark's win record.

    Shiffrin skiing well in late season, she won the SL title at the US nationals last weekend by almost 7 sec (combined time). I know that wasn't a world cup field, but Yowza!

    she's stupendous - can't have too many years left but she's had some great races the past season and surely must be up to another one
    also stupendous, just amazingly consistent and stylish with it

    Okay, thanks.

    Would be nice to see Tina, Anna, Lara and Lindsey all compete against each other one last time.

    I wonder if she regrets sitting out a season with her main rivals sidelined?
