Shiffrin tops ski World Cup money list with record $885K
OBERHOFEN, Switzerland — Mikaela Shiffrin earned a record 886,000 Swiss francs ($885,000) in prize money during the World Cup ski season.
Shiffrin’s 17 victories — the most ever in a season — gave her at least double the amount of the next highest earner on the women’s circuit. Petra Vlhova was second with 428,000 Swiss francs ($427,000).
Marcel Hirscher, who won a record-extending eighth straight overall World Cup title, topped the men’s list with 565,000 Swiss francs ($564,000).
Shiffrin won the women’s overall title for the third straight year.
World Cup organizers typically pay 45,000 Swiss francs ($44,950) for a win. Prize money is paid down to 30th place, which usually earns $500 ($499).

It was a statement game featuring the two best boys basketball teams in the 4A Western Slope League on Saturday afternoon at the Chavez-Spencer Gymnasium in Glenwood Springs. And, just like in the old western shootouts, it was the Glenwood Demons who had spoken the loudest when all the dust had settled with a key 58-44 win over the Steamboat Springs Sailors.
