While he may be Mr. GS, the back-to-back World Champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist knows a thing or two about the men’s slalom scene too. Here’s Shred’s call on who to watch next February.

Felix Neureuther (GER) – He wins a lot of slaloms, is an all around good guy and can flat out turn it on when it’s big. He’s bound to be world champ. 

Marcel Hirscher (AUT) – He is the Olympic gold medalist from Sochi and basically a slalom podium guarantee every race. 

Henrik Kristoffersen (NOR) – He’s super young and has already won an Olympic medal in slalom (bronze). He’s young and should only get better. 

Mario Matt (AUT) – Plain and simply, he seems to get better with age. 

Andre Myhre (SWE) – Andre is super fun to watch ski. He has amazing speed and versatility. 

But don’t count out Ted. He’s been slapping the plastic all month in New Zealand and word on the street is “fast feet.”
