It was the first time World Cup Finals were held in the USA in 20 years and the first time ever an American alpine skier received an overall crystal globe on home snow.

The Finals capped one of the biggest seasons of alpine World Cup ski racing in America. The USA came into the season with 16 races - one of the biggest calendars in history. World Cup weekends at some of America’s most noted resorts, including Killington, Squaw Valley and Aspen, drew in excess of 75,000 fans. Despite a strong snow season at Beaver Creek, races there were canceled due to late arriving snowfall.
