The U.S. Ski Team’s prospects at the upcoming Vancouver Olympics are looking up. That’s what happens when the most successful American alpine racer (31 World Cup victories) jumps aboard. After two years of racing on his own, Bode Miller announced his return to the Ski Team earlier this season. Though Miller, 32, says the Olympics did not motivate his decision, he was not eligible to compete in the Games unless he raced for the U.S.—so we’re betting  he’ll join teammates Lindsey Vonn and Ted Ligety in Whistler come February. Meantime, the gates are getting drilled for the Dec. 4–6 World Cup races on Beaver Creek, Colo.’s Birds of Prey, the only U.S. stop for the men’s tour. Let the Games begin.
