It’s one thing to have the ability to do what you love in life. It’s another to get paid a ridiculous amount of money for doing it. Lindsey Vonn knows what that’s like. We don’t know how much money she’s made from her endorsement deals, but just from winning the overall World Cup this year, she made $466,000.

The International Ski Federation released their list of top money-earners from this year, and Lindsey topped the list. The cross-country overall champion, Poland’s Justyna Kowalczyk was next on the list, earning $346,000. The top men’s earner was Didier Cuche of Switzerland with $316,000.

Adding her endorsement deals to this salary, we calculate that if Lindsey plays her cards right, retirement at 30 should be a feasible option– however, we’d like to see her ski way past that. An 80-year-old Lindsey Vonn will still shred better than any of us here at The Ski Channel ever could!
