American Travis Ganong made history at the FIS World Cup hosted at Beaver Creek Resort over the weekend.

Details: He grabbed his career-first podium in the super G race down the famed Birds of Prey course, finishing third.

  • The California native is the first American to finish in the top three at Beaver Creek since Ted Ligety six years ago.

Of note: The second day of downhill racing was canceled Sunday because of high winds.
