Noel moved up from sixth after the first leg to beat first-run leader Johannes Strolz of Austria by 0.61 seconds after posting the fastest second run. World champion Sebastian Foss-Solevaag of Norway held his position and picked up the bronze by finishing 0.70 behind. Noel finished fourth in the slalom at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games.
