2008 U.S. Alpine Ski Team – Men's Teams

Men's 2008 U.S. Alpine Ski Team Roster

By

Ted Ligety and first-time World Cup winner Steven Nyman lead the 27 men named to the U.S. Alpine A, B, C, and Development Teams. Although he started the season with a broken hand, Ligety had two more World Cup podiums and finished with two U.S. championships for the third straight season. Nyman earned his first World Cup top-3 during the Visa Birds of Prey races at Beaver Creek, CO, and two weeks later won his first race, capturing the downhill in Val Gardena, Italy.
