Bode Miller leads a strong American team into World Cup races at Birds of Prey in Beaver Creek

The best men’s skiers in the world have descended on Beaver Creek for World Cup races this weekend in Downhill, Giant Slalom and Super G.

Even better, the American team, lead by Bode Miller’s fourth-fastest time in Downhill qualifying, looks to be very competitive in all events. Read more in the Vail Daily.

Want to see what the training run looked like on a bluebird day in Beaver Creek? Check out this fantastic photo slideshow from men’s downhill training by the Denver Post.

And the men won’t be done with Beaver Creek after this weekend’s races. The International Ski Federation has announced three World Cup races scheduled for next week at Val d’Isere, France, will now be held at Beaver Creek owing to poor conditions in France.

So look for a men’s giant slalom (Tuesday, Dec. 6) and slalom (Thursday Dec. 8), plus a women’s super G (Wednesday, Dec. 7) next week. That means the entire men’s and women’s American alpine team — including Lindsey Vonn, Julia Mancuso, Ted Ligety and 16-year-old rising slalom star Mikaela Shiffrin — will be at Beaver Creek next week. Read more.
