ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - The sound of Beethoven echoed through the hotel's basement halls, drawing an audience around the person sitting behind the piano.

And who should be pounding the keys on the hauntingly enchanting piece? It was none other than Slovenian skier Tina Maze, who simply slid onto the bench and started in on the melody after a news conference following her third-place slalom finish in Aspen, Colo.

Her rendition was flawless, too, much like her recent performances on the slopes.

Maze has been in tune all season as she's jumped out to a nice lead in the overall World Cup standings heading into the races this weekend in Lake Louise, Alberta. Sure, it's early, but she's emerged as reigning champion Lindsey Vonn's top rival for the crown this season.
