Julia Mancuso took third at the Nissan Xtreme in Verbier last weekend (video above). Not bad, considering she lacks freeskiing experience. In a Ski Magazine post, the Ski Blog asks the question, "Is Mancuso the Best Female Skier in the Universe?" It's not hard to make the case. She picked up her 11th national giant slalom title yesterday - a new record.
