From Whistler, CAN
(Nov. 8, 2018) – Elana Meyers Taylor took her first gold medal of the 2018/2019 season.

Nicole Vogt finished third for her first medal of the new season, while Canadians Christine de Bruin, Alysia Rissling and Kori Hol finished fourth through sixth to round out the Canadian effort.
Brittany Reinbolt had trouble in her second run and was credited with a DNF, while Mica McNeill of Great Britain and An Vannieuwenhuyse only took the first run down.
