Bode Miller's return for another season on the slopes appears all but assured after he signed and submitted his contract to be a member of the U.S. Ski Team.
U.S. men's coach Sasha Rearick told The Associated Press he has chatted with Miller and that the two-time World Cup overall champion is "jazzed up" about skiing. Miller even tried to talk Rearick into an early start to the August training camp in New Zealand.

His signing was first reported by Ski Racing.
Miller won gold, silver and bronze at the Vancouver Olympics, bringing his career total to five medals. The 32-year-old was uncertain about returning in 2010-11, taking the summer to ponder retirement.
Rearick figured Miller would lean toward coming back since he is "very passionate about skiing."
