Bode Miller Biography

Bode Miller was born, grew up, and learned to ski and race in New Hampshire. He is one of the most fantastic athletes of the twenty first century. He still has close ties with the New Hampshire skiing community. Recently, Bode Miller has signed on as Director of Skiing at Bretton Woods ski resort. A program called "Team Bode" is offered there for kids 6-12. Bode Miller has helped to design this program. It is a six-week recreational program for all-mountain skiers. He also helped to design an expert trail at Mount Rosebrook (Bretton Woods) called Bode's Run. Even at the start, Bode Miller resisted boundaries. Here he was, barely two years old, coasting downhill on tiny skis between the legs of his mother, Jo, while she dug a wide wedge and supported him with her arms. "Let go! Let go!" squawked little Bode, fighting for his freedom. After two runs his mom relented, turned her toddler loose and hurtled toward the base of the run, "trying to get to the bottom before Bode got there and crashed into the fence," she recalls. This scene would be repeated, in one form or another, for more than two decades. Bode does things his way, in life and in skiing. Sometimes Bode Miller wins, sometimes he crashes. Armed with a self-taught, attacking style that confounded the boyhood coaches who tried to change him, Bode (pronounced BOH-dee) hopped mountains and trained with a rival team at age 13. It probably cost him a place in the 1990 Junior Olympics. Five years later Bode Miller challenged a Carrabassett Valley (Maine) Academy English teacher's requirements for a senior paper. It definitely cost him a high school diploma. "People have tried to get Bode to fit in or to jump through hoops," says Chip Cochrane, who coached Miller at CVA. "He's not a hoop-jumper."
