On the first day of GS, all of the girls DNF (did not finish), except for Beth Fisher who ended in 78th and scored a 266.65. The course was about 1 minute and 17 seconds long, which is longer than usual. The conditions were holding up pretty well, which meant that the girls who started 100th still had an okay track. On the second day of GS, the conditions were pretty similar. Sarah Bennett ended in 30th, scoring a 75.58; Sarah Coombs in 36th, scoring a 89.70; Chelsea Smith in 62nd, scoring a 152.7; Joanna Rosenbluth in 69th, scoring a 164.87; Beth Fisher in 85th, scoring a 258.94; and Jane Baumer DSQ (disqualified).

The course was very short on the first day of slalom, with a time of about 37 seconds. Sarah Bennett ended in 13th, scoring a 53.22; Chelsea Smith in 56th, scoring a 156.92; Joanna Rosenbluth in 61st, scoring a 177.02; Beth Fisher in 70th scoring, a 236.75; and Jane Baumer DNF.
