Six-time Olympic medalist Bode Miller, the most decorated skier in U.S. Olympic history, will join NBC Olympics’ alpine skiing team for its coverage of the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Miller makes his NBC Olympics debut as an analyst, alongside alpine skiing voice Dan Hicks, former World Cup skier and on-course reporter Steve Porino, and reporter Heather Cox. Miller worked with NBC Sports on its alpine skiing coverage for six events last season.

“Any time Bode Miller is on skis, you just have to watch. Now, when he talks about skiing, you’ll want to hear to what he has to say. His opinions are as intuitive and fearless as his turns and, simply put, he will make us better,” said Jim Bell, President, NBC Olympics Production & Programming.
