Pinturault sets the tone for the season

I saw a few sample runs of this ski season's first race in Sölden, Austria, and can attest that the contest is shifting in favor of younger skiers coming of age as well as the best (Hirscher and Pinturault) taking much risk and getting closer to wiping out.

There's so much you can do with adherence on injected snow before too much angulation gets you in trouble.

Ligety's comeback was marked by a controlled run that wasn't enough to hoist him upon the podium. Will he be able to shine again? That's the question of the day that comes assorted with an uncertain answer...
