PARK CITY, Utah (Dec. 22) - The string of nine World Cup alpine podiums by five U.S. skiers in six days, including the first victory of their career for Olympic champion Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA) and Steven Nyman (Provo, UT), is unprecedented for the U.S. Ski Team.

U.S. Alpine Director Jesse Hunt pointed to the fact the podiums came across-the-board in all disciplines - slalom, GS, super G and downhill. "I think the momentum is definitely in our favor now, and it's showing. The athletes are feeding off each other now; when you're going 80 miles an hour [during stretches of a downhill], you need to have confidence and you need to believe. Our athletes have that little edge and confidence when their teammates are breaking through and doing well," Hunt said.

- Five different U.S. skiers, not one or two having a great series of results

- First World Cup wins for Steven Nyman (Provo, UT) and Olympic giant slalom gold medalist Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA), each of whom won in downhill

- Lindsey Kildow (Vail, CO) earned her fourth and fifth podiums of the season, winning the second Val d'Isere downhill Wednesday after finishing third Tuesday in the first Val d'Isere downhill, as she moved past childhood idol Picabo Street with 18 World Cup podiums

- This is the first time that two U.S. women have stood on the podium together since Kildow and Mancuso went 2-3 in super G at Cortina, Italy, on Jan. 27, 2006. Kildow also doubled up with Caroline Lalive (Steamboat Springs, CO) with a 1-2 finish in downhill at Val d'Isere, France, on Dec. 17, 2005.

- Two-time Olympian Marco Sullivan (Squaw Valley, CA), who was sidelined two years after tearing ligaments in his left knee, missed his first podium by one-hundredth of a second, finishing fourth in the downhill Saturday, Dec. 16 in Val Gardena, Italy

- Miller's victory Wednesday in super G in Hinterstoder, Austria, was the 24th of his career, moving him closer to Phil Mahre and his U.S. mark of 27 World Cup wins

- After being stymied in Val Gardena for decades (two third-place finishes since the World Cup first came there in the 1969 season - Mike Lafferty in 1972, AJ Kitt in '92), U.S. men broke through for two wins in 24 hours

- As of Dec. 21, the U.S. men have three skiers ranked in the World Cup top 10 overall - Miller second, Ted Ligety sixth and Nyman 10th. The U.S. women have two - Kildow (fourth) and Mancuso (seventh) Current U.S. podiums streak

Champagne Powder® Snow day, folks! Sure we've had a bigger storm than this, but this morning was what dreams are made of - with the temp at a chilly 8 and easily fifteen inches by 8am, this snow is perfect. Did you hear me?? PERFECT! Shhhh, and it's still snowing... Welcome to winter my friends, today it's OFFICIALLY here. Although we snowlovers have seemingly had our winter since, well, September, if I remember correctly, today marks the first actual day of winter. And Ski Town USA® is welcoming it the right way! The locals got up early, skipped work, called in their powder clauses, and began howling like wolves earlier than usual. We started out with the lucky first chair on Storm Peak Express, licking up a completely untracked powder field on Storm Face, traversing over to Cyclone: heavenly and up past my knees!! OOOHOO, with some unnoticeable bumps underneath we had no problem soaring like birds skimming the sea's surface down this one. Too nice to pass again, we looped back down for another try, this time down Storm to the meadow next to Four Points, and over to Hurricane. Ok, these bumps were a little more to be reckoned with!! But oh, so deep,
