After kicking off the season this December in Canada, NorAm athletes headed south to start 2017. The men went to Stowe, Vt. for two giant slalom races, but they were only able to compete in one after Tuesday’s race was canceled due to fog and freezing rain.
On Monday, when the weather was fair, U.S. Ski Team athlete Nick Krause won his second NorAm of the season and his career. After coming in sixth on the first run, 0.78 seconds behind, Krause turned it up a notch to overtake the first-run leader, Canadian Phil Brown. Brown lost the race by just 0.05 seconds and his teammate Dustin Cook was in third, 0.26 seconds behind the pace.
