ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Loic Meillard of Switzerland capped a podium-filled weekend in Aspen, Colorado, by winning a World Cup slalom. After taking second in back-to-back giant slalom races at the glitzy resort town, Meillard overcame a first-run deficit to win Sunday in a combined time of 1 minute, 42.73 seconds. He held off Linus Strasser of Germany by 0.89 seconds, while Norway’s Henrik Kristoffersen finished third.
