Miller says he was "supposed to get an eye surgery earlier this year. ... We were pretty (upset) looking back on that that we hadn't figured out a time to do that."

The downhill training sessions were held in clear sunshine but clouds moved in for race day.

The 36-year-old Miller says "when the light is perfect I can ski with any of the best guys in the world. When it goes out, my particular style suffers more than the guys who are more stable and sort of don't do as much in the middle of the turns."
