The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team is taking over late night.  First Lindsey Vonn charmed the audience on Conan, then it was Shaun White’s turn to tail press Conan’s forehead, and now Ted Ligety makes the late night appearance tour on Carson Daly’s show, Last Call.

Don’t think that Ted is slacking on his training for Levi.  His segment was filmed last spring, so after his podium finish at Soelden, Ligety will be primed and ready for the second World Cup race of the season.

The segment will profile “Shred’s” rise to his breakthrough combined gold medal at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino and follow him through his 2008 World Cup giant slalom title and 2009 World Championships GS bronze medal. An underdog going into 2006, Ligety has risen to become one of the most talented technical skiers in the world.

The segment is part of a string of late night appearances for U.S. Ski Team athletes as Resi Stiegler (Jackson Hole, WY) was featured on Last Call on May 27 and Lindsey Vonn (Vail, CO) appeared on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien last week.
