In the final parallel slalom World Cup standing Zogg led the way with 345 points. Tsubaki Miki (JPN) finished the campaign in second place with 252 points, while Hofmeister completed the women’s podium in third place with 250 points.
Finishing in second place on the day, Megan Farrell capped off her best World Cup season up to date with her career’s very first top-3 finish.
The biggest winner of the season on the women’s side of things, however, was Germany’s Ramona Theresia Hofmeister, who wrapped up the season in spectacular fashion with her third consecutive parallel overall and parallel giant slalom crystal globes.
On Saturday, Hofmeister finished the competition in third place after winning the small final against Daniela Ulbing (AUT), and with her third top-3 finish in last eight days she was able to defend her top spot in the overall standing and claim her second title this week.
Hofmeister racked up one victory, as well as two runner-up and three third-place finishes for 6 podiums, wrapping up the season with 557 points. Zogg took second with 540 points, while Ulbing rounded out the podium in third place with 508 points.
Switching over to men’s event it was Andreas Prommegger (AUT) and Edwin Coratti (ITA), who finished the competition in ex aequo first place after an extremely thrilling big final matchup.
While extremely rare, it wasn’t the first time that we saw a tie for the first place at the FIS Snowboard Alpine World Cup tour. Back in 2020 Benjamin Karl (AUT) and Marco Felicatti (ITA) wrote history with their first ever tie for top spot in a parallel World Cup event and just a week ago in Piancavallo Zogg and Tsubaki repeated this extraordinary achievement with the first ever tie over in the women’s competition.
On Saturday Prommegger and Coratti worked their way through, while showing some exceptionally fast riding, as they finally met in the big final. There it was Prommegger who built up a solid advantage of nearly half a second in the upper part of the course, but Coratti was able to find the optimal line and catch the Austrian rider. The duo crossed the finish line with exactly the same time, meaning that Saturday’s competition would once again see not just one winner, but two.
