BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Ted Ligety has been brazenly bashing skiing's governing body for what he feels is an infringement on his livelihood.
The Olympic gold medalist is quite perturbed at the International Ski Federation over new equipment regulations set to be implemented next season.
His main discipline, the giant slalom, could be the most affected as the hourglass shape of the skis is altered in an attempt to make the sport safer.
Ligety is frustrated and furious over the move, saying it will ruin the giant slalom.
And the three-time overall GS champion is hardly alone. Many of the skiers on the World Cup circuit are less than thrilled with the rule changes, which they feel were pushed through without much input from them.
