Speed Queen’s Armour: Behind the scenes with Lindsey Vonn

Posted By: The Ski Channel on October 28, 2009 1:15 pm



Two-time World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn has been a very busy woman–she’s competing and appearing at USSA events– all while preparing for the upcoming Olympic Games in Vancouver.  The Ski Channel had the lucky opportunity to join Vonn at her recent shoot for Under Armor and their ColdGear product that she will be wearing in the upcoming Olympics.  A TV commercial featuring Vonn in the ColdGear, which will be featured at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores, will hit the airwaves this Saturday; but you can have a behind-the-scenes look above at how the ad was made. 

Under Armour ColdGear uses double-sided fabric that takes moisture from you ski and circulates body heat, which keeps Vonn warm in the coldest conditions. Vonn was wearing the SubZero Mock, photo below, as she battled the blowing snow in the shoot.  In addition to keeping her warm, it also prote

cts from the sun, as it has UPF 30+ technology.  Although it doesn’t guarantee an Olympic gold medal, Vonn will be doing everything she can to make that happen in Vancouver this February.
