The great thing about living in a ski town is you get to meet amazing athletes face to face. This day was one of those with Lindsey Vonn at Kidsport in Vail.
Kidsport hosted skiing great and Vail local, Lyndsey Vonn on Wednesday evening. Only 9 months after the 2015 Championships at Beaver Creek and only days away until the opening of Vail for the 2015-2016 winter season tons of locals and visitors – both children and adults – lined up to get their photo taken with Lindsey and get a poster signed by the four-time overall World Cup Champion.
What is it about Lindsey? Yes she is strikingly beautiful, but also just as approachable. You know she is originally from the midwest. But what you wouldn’t know is that she is down to earth and very friendly, as one wouldn’t necessarily assume given her accomplishments.
Her smile was genuine and she went out of her way to answer every question that each child had.
