Alpine Ski World Cup Jasna Preview

Updated: Jan 19

For a third time, Jasná, the home ski resort of Petra Vlhova and the biggest ski area in Slovakia will host the world's women's elite in alpine skiing. Next weekend a Giant Slalom and a Slalom World Cup races will be held in the ski area in the Low Tatras.

The ski resort Jasná is part of the Demänovská Dolina village in the region of Liptov. The ski area is located between 943 and 2004 meters and offers 50 km of slopes with 20 lifts.

After 32 years the Alpine Ski World Cup returned to Jasna in 2016. Eva-Maria Brem won the Giant Slalom held in Jasna. The Austrian clocked an aggregate time of 2:30.60 to beat Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg (+0.27), then her closest rival for the discipline globe. Italy's Federica Brignone, who was third after the opening run 1.11 seconds behind Brem, rounded out the podium, 0.52 seconds behind.

The day before Mikaela Shiffrin continued her unbeaten 2016 season streak in slalom with a demonstrative victory on Slovakia. Shiffrin dominated both slalom runs to finish ahead of Switzerland's Wendy Holdener and local favorite Veronika Velez Zuzulova, who were respectively 2.36 and 2.77 seconds off the winning pace.

In 2021 Mikaela Shiffrin won the Slalom event held in Jasná. She finished ahead of local favorite Petra Vlhova and Swiss Wendy Holdener.

One day after Petra Vlhova had perhaps her sweetest victory of the season, winning the Giant Slalom on home snow in Jasna. Alice Robinson of New Zealand climbed from the seventh position in the first run to finish runner-up, 0.16 off the lead. Mikaela Shiffrin made a number of small errors on her second run which saw her slip to third place, 0.37s behind the home favorite.
