A Little Bit of History

Here’s a little piece of history for our blog readers today. A couple weeks ago we co-hosted an event with Vail Resorts for World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn. The celebration at the Arrabelle at Vail Square featured a free concert and kicked off Lindsey's journey to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver and beyond.

The photo above was taken at that celebration as a group of former U.S. Women's Ski Team stars helped pass the torch to Lindsey and the current crop of American alpine women. Shown here are, from left-to-right, Christin Cooper, Lindsey Vonn, Cindy Nelson and Tamara McKinney. Within this group, there are a total of 51 World Cup victories, 13 World Championship medals, 2 Olympic medals and 3 Overall World Cup titles.

Also on hand for the celebration was Debbie Armstrong, 1984 Olympic Giant Slalom gold medallist, although Debstrong missed the photo op.

Join us December 4-6 as we welcome the world to Beaver Creek for the 2009 Audi Birds of Prey World Cup Race Week.
