Sun Valley Ski Education Racer Finnigan Donley got off to a good start at the U.S. Alpine National Championships, finishing fifth in the Sunday Super G before collecting U.S. Ski and Snowboard Rookie of the Year honors.

Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation racers enjoyed their home hill advantage on Sunday, logging strong finishes in the Super G of the Toyota U.S. Alpine Championships. 

The Greyhawk course set a challenging tone to open the races on Sun Valley's Bald Mountain: around one third of the men and one quarter of the women who started the speed event didn't finish it. 

In the end, Kyle Negomir of Ski and Snowboard Club Vail took the men's crown, and HoliMont Snowsports' Tricia Mangan topped the women's podium.
