Tomorrow morning I will be anxiously monitoring World Cup Finals race results on my FIS mobile app – waiting to see if Mikaela Shiffrin will battle back to regain her top standing in slalom to win the season title.  After losing her 33-point lead last week in the Ofterschwang slalom, she now trails Overall Champion Tina Maze by a mere seven points.
