Shiffrin, who is the Olympic champion in giant slalom, has yet to start her final run.
Mikaela Shiffrin rebounded from missing the Olympic slalom podium to clinch her fifth World Cup slalom season title with her 42nd career World Cup victory, most for any racer before turning 23 years old.
Shiffrin was guaranteed of winning the title because her only remaining rival, Wendy Holdener, failed to finish in the top two, ESPN reported.
She racked up a personal best 10 World Cup wins this season, but they all came in a relatively short 46-day spell between November 25 and January 9. She previously won gold in slalom, her strongest discipline, at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
In her first race after the Olympics, Shiffrin was fourth after the opening run but improved a spot to third, 0.74 seconds behind Mowinckel. Shiffrin's 603-point lead over Holdener is now insurmountable.
