The season’s top rated-ranked ladies have been invited to race in the slalom Planet Cup finals tomorrow in Soldeu, Andorra. On top of that, the Junior Planet Champion from every single discipline is certified to race in their occasion. Also, this season there was a tie for the 25th position so there have been 26 ladies invited and all of them will race tomorrow.

Sweden’s Junior Planet Champion Hanna Elfman Aronsson is a young Planet Cup star and ranked 9th in the Planet Cup slalom standings. Her season of exceptional Planet Cup outcomes certified her for the final.

With two races remaining on the 2023 Planet Cup calendar, Mikaela Shiffrin has currently earned the 2023 season all round, giant slalom and slalom titles. She has won 13 2023 Planet Cup races and six of these are slaloms. Tomorrow it can be assumed that she will be aggressively pursuing her seventh.

Having said that, 4 other ladies have won Planet Cup slaloms this season. Though something is achievable each and every victory is difficult to execute. Notably, the ladies of the Stifel US Alpine Group are at the moment major the Nations Cup slalom standings. They have a important 91 point lead more than the Swiss ladies, even so, whilst the US ladies will have two stars skiing the Swiss will have a total of 4 ladies competing, consequently the lead is not secure.

Having said that, it is fascinating that Paula Moltzan and Shiffrin are amongst the top rated seven on the slalom Planet Cup Get started List. Shiffrin is 1st and Moltzan is 7th, which must be an benefit in tomorrow’s race.
