Vail's Lindsey Vonn just missed the podium by three hundredths of a second to finish fourth in a giant slalom today in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, building her overall World Cup lead over fifth-place finisher and local favorite Tina Maze.

Vonn, the Olympic downhill champion and Ski and Snowboard Club Vail (SSCV) product, dropped to her left hip a few gates before the finish line but made a quick save to stay on an icy course.

France's Tessa Worley won the race, with Italy's Federica Brignone in second and Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg in third.

GS is typically Vonn's weakest event, but she won the opener in Soelden, Austria, for her first career victory in the discipline and is now third in the World Cup giant slalom standings.

Seeking an American record fourth overall World Cup title, Vonn now leads Maze by 296 points.

"Lindsey had an OK first run, but she was really charging in the second run," coach Alex Hoedlmoser said. "We thought she was going to take the lead, but then she slipped a few gates from the finish and actually had to put both hands on the snow to save it. Without that, she might have been in it for another GS win. Still, she took some great points today and is consistently showing that she can challenge for the top of the podium in GS."

A slalom is scheduled for Sunday in Kranjska Gora, with teen sensation Mikaela Shiffrin, of Eagle-Vail -- another SSCV racer -- returning to action,
