Ted Ligety won the season-opening men's World Cup giant slalom on Sunday with a massive 2.75-second lead over second-place Manfred Moelgg of Italy.
In difficult conditions due to fog and snowfall, Ligety finished the race on the Rettenbach glacier in an overall time of 2 minutes, 36.02 seconds.
Overall World Cup champion Marcel Hirscher of Austria trailed Ligety by 3.12 seconds in third place.
It was Ligety's 12th career win, all of which came in GS. The American won the race here last season as well but ultimately lost his GS title to Hirscher.
