Lara Gut continued her blistering start to the ALpine skiing season on Saturday when she won the women’s Super G in Beaver Creek Colorado.

The Swiss ace, who won the opening giant slalom last month in Soelden, Austria and also Friday’s downhill, was again in impressive form as the 22-year-old tamed the new Raptor course in 1 minute 18.42 seconds.

She’ll now be aiming for the weekend sweep in Sunday’s giant slalom.

Austrian all-rounder Elisabeth Görgl initially took second place but was later disqualified for illegal bindings on her skis which meant compatriot Anna Fenninger was bumped up to the runners-up spot.

The 2011 super combined world champion was just under a second off the pace.

The Austria team didn’t lose out on a medal though as veteren skier Nicole Hosp was promoted to third place.

The 2007 overall world cup champion was just under two tenths of a second further adrift.

The women stay in Beaver Creek for Sunday’s giant slalom before crossing the border north to Canada for a series of races at Lake Louis next week.
