Possibly more good news for U.S. skiers?
Picabo Street of Sun Valley, Ida., won the final training run for the women's downhill, to be raced today.
Street's time of 1 minute 36.50 seconds was .19 faster than German's Katja Seizinger, the race favorite.
"I like the downhill here," Street said. "There's a lot going on all the way down. And the snow is really hard."
Teammate Hilary Lindh, the defending Olympic silver medalist, was 12th.
Julie Parisien, meanwhile, is looking like a medal threat in the women's combined, a two-day event that combines the times for a separate downhill and slalom.
Parisien, not noted as much of a speed skier, has taken a liking to the Kvitfjell downhill course and has been among the training leaders for skiers who will also ski combined.
