(AP) -- With the Alpine skiing World Cup returning to North America for the first time in two years, Mikaela Shiffrin can't wait to race in front of a home crowd again.

This weekend's two races in Killington, Vermont, are the only women's World Cup events on American snow this season and for Shiffrin there is both a personal unbeaten streak and an all-time record on the line. She has won all four previous World Cup slalom races in Killington and the event had become a bit of annual signpost for Shiffrin before they were canceled last year because of the pandemic.
