The Burke Mountain Academy grad won her third straight slalom there. And last weekend Shiffrin made history again, getting her first World Cup victory in the Super G.

With the win, she becomes the first skier to ever earn a win in all six World Cup disciplines, the slalom, parallel slalom, giant slalom, super-G, downhill and alpine combined. It's her 46th World Cup win and only three other women have won more.
