Continuing the series in episode two of The Ski Channel’s Winter Sessions, Bode and Chelone Miller share their roots of growing up in the woods in a humble home with a family that was raised to be adventurers and athletes. Born to be outdoors, the Miller family passionately pursued an active lifestyle in the mountains which greatly impacted their success in their professional careers.
Bode told the Ski Channel, “For me, being outside playing was important. It was how I was growing and I knew that had a lot to do with why I was happy and why I enjoyed myself”.
The Ski Channel is proud to present an intimate look at the relationship between one of the most successful American skiers, Bode Miller, and his snowboarding younger brother, the late Chelone Miller. The Ski Channel was lucky enough to spend some time with Chelone before his tragic accident, getting to know this sweet and sensitive soul. We edited this piece before Chelone passed, and decided to keep it as is, focusing on the brother’s bond. It is with great applause that we celebrate the lives of these two athletes and their accomplishments.
*Chelone Miller was an athlete, brother, son and friend that will be forever missed. Our respect goes out to the Miller family, with hopes to honor Chelone’s life as best we can.
