U.S. Ski Team athletes Bode MIller, Steven Nyman and Erik Fisher are inspiring kids right this moment as you read this. 

The three skiers visited the Eagle County Charter School in Edwards, CO, to talk to students in grades K through four and sign autographs. Edwards is a small town near Beaver Creek, where the athletes will take to the Birds of Prey race hill tomorrow for downhill training.

Later today, Olympic Champion Ted Ligety and stars Andrew Weibrecht and Scott Macartney will visit a local high school to talk to area ski racers.

The Audi FIS World Cup downhill was moved to Saturday–not a school day, so surely the athletes will now have even more fans cheering for them at the Finish.
