If we take a closer look at the current classification of the discipline, we see that the Italian Martha Bassino and the Swedish Sarah Hector engage in a duel at the height of a man and will give nothing. The Swiss woman Lara Gut-Behrami could upstage them both and, like Killington, step onto the top step of the podium and, so to speak, as a laughing third party, turn the tables in their favor. The Slovak Petra Vlhova Of course, she wants to get started and needs to get a few wins for her same-age competitor Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States in the fight for the big crystal ball did not overtake the opponents too early. The latter has set itself the goal of approaching the record for women’s victories before the Alpine Skiing World Championships. Fellow successful Lindsey Vonn still has five wins under her belt.

The French Tessa Worley won the discipline classification last winter and of course wants to lift the coveted trophy this season or at least fight for a long time to get it. Bassino’s teammates are also in for a good placement Federica Brignone and the ever cheerful Norwegian Ragnhild Mowinkel. Also Shiffrin’s teammate Paula Moltzan has already proven its ability to drive fast several times. The Austrians, especially Catherine Liensberger, wants to win all three races at home and obviously wants to please his audience with very good results, which can even end with a podium. We can also expect a positive appearance of Ramona Siebenhofer, Ricarda Haaser, Franziska Gritsch and wait for the other.

Wendy Holden and Michelle Gisin, two compatriots of Gut-Behrami, would like to continue the positive wind of the last races after Christmas and hit the Semmering cleanly. The Norwegian Thea Louise StjernesundThe Polish woman married Gasienica Daniel and New Zealander Alice Robinson have often shown what they are capable of in the past. The last entry even won a few World Cup races and nothing prevents her from accumulating her points on the red-white-red snow.

The Canadian Valerie GrenierSwiss ski athlete Andrea Ellenberger and Slovenian Ana Bucik can enjoy their routine, azure athletes Asja Zenere and Roberta Melesi always want to improve and one day teach their established teammates to be internally scared. Also from Switzerland Camille Rast. She showed last year and she is not averse to showing her racing skills at the Semmering.

A place in the top 15 would be good for confidence; such a position would be for ÖSV athletes Elisabeth Kappaurer and Catherine Troopbut also for Worley’s compatriot Coralie Frasse Sombet by no means a utopia. The Confederate Simone Sauvage, who recommended herself for higher tasks via the European Cup, clearly wants to follow the concert of the greats and collect a lot of points. Of course, the very young Italian-Albanians have that Lara Colturi, Estelle Alphand of the Drei-Kronen-Team and the US-Lady Nina O’Brien before.

As Lienz and Semmering always alternate, the last women’s giant slalom of the World Cup took place in Semmering in December 2018. At that time, Slovak Petra Vlhová triumphed ahead of German Viktoria Rebensburg, who has since retired. Experienced Tessa Worley of France dropped to third place.
