BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Ted Ligety wants to branch out and become a more all-around skier.
Known for his slalom skills, the U.S. Olympic gold medalist has been dedicating even more time to downhill training this season.
Ligety didn't get the chance to show off all that extra work Friday as the World Cup downhill race was postponed because of strong winds. He'll get another crack Saturday in the super-G.
By his own admission, though, Ligety remains a work in progress in the speed events. His bread-and-butter by far is the giant slalom, capturing the overall GS title last winter for the second time in three seasons.
That's what has led to Ligety's label as more of a technical skier, a moniker he really doesn't mind.
