US Ski Team’s Ted Ligety (Park City, UT) and Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) making history with an amazing 1-2 finish in Mens Giant Slalom at the 2013 Audi Birds Of Prey FIS World Cup in Beaver Creek, CO this weekend! It is the first giant slalom double-podium since Bode and Daron Rahlves went 1-2 in 2005.

It is GAME ON for the Sochi 2014 Olympics!
