Mikaela Shiffrin celebrated in Saalbach a record-extending 97th World Cup victory. It was her 60-win in the Slalom.

Mikaela Shiffrin secured her eighth Slalom Crystal Globe by winning the Åre Slalom on March 10th tying her with Lindsey Vonn (Downhill) and Ingemar Stenmark (Slalom and Giant Slalom), who also hold eight discipline Globes. Marcel Hirscher won the Men's Overall World Cup Crystal Globe eight times.

Åre is a very special place for the US ski superstar. She won her first World Cup race in the Swedish ski resort in December 2012 when she was only 17.

The 29-year-old US skier has won seven (Levi, Killington, Lienz, Flachau, Jasna, Åre, and Saalbach) of the 11 Women's World Cup Slalom events this season. She only claimed more World Cup Slalom wins in the 2018-2019 winter season (8). Shiffrin won all Slalom races she started this season with three exceptions: In the Opening Slalom in Levi she finished in fourth position. In December in Courchevel, she finished in second position. In January in Kranjska Gora, Shiffrin failed to finish the first run after straddling a gate. The last time Shiffrin did not finish a Slalom event was also in Kranjska Gora on January 9, 2022.

In Soldeu, in the first Slalom race without Petra Vlhova and Mikaela Shiffrin, Anna Swenn Larsson imposed her experience and regained physical fitness to win. Before Soldeu, the last time with a podium in Slalom at the World Cup without Vlhova or Shiffrin was in Killington on November 27, 2022.

Until Vlhova's injury in Jasna, Mikaela Shiffrin and Petra Vlhová have recorded a 1-2 finish in 24 Alpine Ski World Cup Slalom events. Shiffrin finished ahead of Vlhová 14 times and it was the other way around 10 times.
