What makes a champion? A 2016 Bode Miller Interview

2016 Bode Miller interview “What makes a champion?”

My 2016 Bode Miller interview is among my favorite chairlift interviews. This Snow Motion video segment is a great inside look into one of the most prolific snow skiers in our sport.

In addition to talk of the US Ski Team and ski racing on the world stage, highlights of my exclusive Bode Miller interview include:

  • Especially relevant is how Bode Miller consequently shaped himself as a result of going his own way and most of all forging his own path.
  • How ski racing finally built Bode Miller’s skills in self reliance, self discipline and perspective about coming back from injury and a dose of bad luck.
  • The Bode Miller Bomber Skis Partnership and furthermore why the brand will be a game changer.
  • How Bode Miller is building his philanthropic legacy , The Turtle Ridge Foundation.
