The 17-year-old from Toronto finished with a time of 1:44.80.

Ali sat in her third place after her first run, but managed to pull ahead to second thanks to a sizzling Run 2 that she skied in 50.02 – the second fastest time of the day.

“I definitely was hoping to do well in the slalom event and to have it go well is such a great feeling. The conditions on the hill were awesome, very slick, and the competition was challenging. The Youth Olympic Games are such a great experience and I’m so excited to be a part of it.”

Ali finished 1.59s behind the winner from Switzerland and .85s ahead of the Slovenian skier in third. Canadian teammate Amelia Smart (Invermere, B.C.) finished in 19th with a time of 1:54.56.
