The favourites

At this year's World Cup, too, all eyes are on

Mikaela Shiffrin


The American, who has now become the most successful athlete in World Cup history with 85 victories in January, is the clear favorite in Courchevel and Méribel, especially in slalom, but the chances are also good in giant slalom and in combined.

Her biggest challengers include

Petra Vhlová


Wendy Holdener



Henrik Kristoffersen


Aleksander Aamodt Kilde

are in top form for the men.

However, the best driver of the current season is

Marco Odermatt

: the Swiss has already led the field eight times in giant slalom and super-G.

The Germans

The hopes in the DSV camp this year rest particularly on

Lena Dürr

: The 31-year-old celebrated her first World Cup victory in slalom at the World Cup dress rehearsal in Spindleruv Mlyn.

In the slalom classification, Dürr, who won team bronze at the 2022 Winter Olympics, is in a strong fourth place.

Kira Weidle

recently proved that she is always good for a top position in the downhill


But there are also German medal contenders among the men:

Linus Straßer

has already made it onto the podium twice this season.

In the giant slalom,

Alexander Schmid

is given outsider chances after several top 10 placements.

Germany's downhill riders around

Romed Baumann


Josef Ferstl

shouldn't have anything to do with the top places in Courchevel and Méribel.
