(Young and Lackie travel with her on tour and for much of the off-season.)June is the busiest time of year at the C. When I asked Shiffrin to identify the biggest beast in the place, she pointed to Steven Nyman, a veteran American downhiller, and then said, “Or me.”Shiffrin is lean, of medium height, with broad shoulders and, like everyone there, powerful legs. You could see traces of boot-bang bruises on her shins.She began by warming up for ten minutes on a stationary bike and then doing some stretching. She said that the day before had been a rough one—lifting weights, jumping up stairs.She sprinted the length of the gym while pulling a weighted sled, then ran back while pushing a heavier sled, then did bouncy squat-like reps on a contraption that seemed to mimic skiing over bumps, then dragged a weighted sled backward, then rowed hard on an ergometer, then skated side to side in her stocking feet on a slide board while holding a ten-pound medicine ball.

It is also, in a roundabout yet essential way, Shiffrin’s home turf.A pattern was developing of Shiffrin’s dominating in training but encountering nerves and some tactical indecision on race day.Her mother, Eileen, her de facto coach, taskmaster, and wingman, suggested that she talk to a sports psychologist. “It didn’t feel like I was seeing a shrink,” she said.Since the Winter Olympics in 2002, Park City, flush with the state-of-the-art facilities that were built for the Games, has become a hub of hale but half-broke world-class competitors in obscure frozen-water sports.When Shiffrin and I had dinner one night in town, the waiter, knowing a jock when he saw one, asked her, “What’s your sport?

I first heard of Shiffrin the winter of her first World Cup race.
