Fog moved in over Bormio, Italy, which made for little to no visibility in addition to the rain causing poor skiing conditions.
Vonn and Miller's historic acceptance of the men's and women's World Cup overall champion globes marked the first time since 1983 that the U.S. took both of the titles.
U.S. athletes now head to the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships, which open next weekend in Sugarloaf, ME.
