Showing no signs of a Christmas hangover, Jansrud won by 0.6s from Austria’s Hannes Reichelt, with Dominik Paris just a further 0.05s behind in third.
Paris’ podium place was his second of the season in Super-G, after also finishing third in Val D’Isere, showing something close to the form that won him the world championship in 2015.
Jansrud’s compatriot Aleksander Aamodt Kilde made it two Norwegians in the top four, with Germany’s Josef Ferstl completing the top five.

With the first Super-G race of the season in Beaver Creek cancelled because of warm conditions and a lack of snow, there are just three races remaining for someone to try and knock Jansrud from his perch.
And the next opportunity to make up ground on the Norwegian comes in Kitzbuhel on January 20.
