The U.S. Paralympics Alpine National Team finished in top podium positions in the super-G races at the first IPC Alpine Skiing NorAm Cup of the season at Copper Mountain, Colorado.

Leading the US in the women’s sitting division super-G was Laurie Stephens and Stephani Victor claiming first and second place. Stephens, a three-time Paralympic Winter Games medalist, won gold, with four-time medalist Victor claiming the runner-up spot. Allison Jones , a Paralympic gold medalist in both cycling and skiing, won first place in tthe women’s standing division .

Team USA men witnessed Mark Bathum winning the men’s visually impaired super-G. Mark previously won silver in the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games. In the sitting competition, Tyler Walker claimed second place.

Thought technically not a world cup competition, the IPC Alpine Skiing NorAm Cup awards points to determine rankings and qualification for IPC Alpine Skiing World Cups and Paralympic events. Scoring is based on finishing place, with athletes aiming for as few points as possible. To qualify for world cups and ultimately the Paralympic Winter Games in each discipline, athletes must remain under a certain point threshold.

Competition at Copper Mountain runs through Dec. 12, with the next IPC Alpine Skiing NorAm set for Jan. 1-3, 2014 in Winter Park, Colo. . Visit the official calendar of events for all alpine competitions.
