Following another successful season on the World Cup circuit, three-time World Cup Overall champion and Olympic gold and bronze medalist Lindsey Vonn will return home to Vail for a community gathering to celebrate another incredible season of achievements, as well as those of EpicMix kids, on Saturday, April 9 from 12 – 2 p.m. at Eagle’s Nest on Vail Mountain. The winningest U.S. female skier of all time, Lindsey Vonn recently won the 2011 World Cup Combined, Downhill and Super G titles, and raised her total World Cup wins in all four disciplines (downhill, Super G, slalom and super combined) to 41.
I see from twitter @lindseyvonn is pretty excited about being back home and for the celebration. “Up on @vailmtn today and about to record my first EpicMix of the season! It’s a perfect day to be outside!
The festivities will kick off at noon at Eagle’s Nest, located at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola (#19) on Vail Mountain. Complimentary foot passenger tickets will be available at the Lionshead Ticket Office beginning at 11 a.m. for those without a season pass or lift ticket. Supporters will be greeted with Lindsey Vonn memorabilia, commemorative pins, a live DJ, complimentary cookies and hot cocoa as well as food and drink specials at Talon’s Deck.
Vail Mountain has supported Vonn throughout her ski racing career and Vonn now represents all six of Vail Resorts’ world-class mountain resorts–Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly and Northstar-at-Tahoe – as well as the revolutionary Epic Pass™ (www.epicpass.com), back for its fourth season providing unlimited, unrestricted access to all six Vail Resorts mountains as well as Arapahoe Basin for just $649 for adults and $329 for children ages 5 to 12.
Guests who are using their season passes or PEAKS cards and multi-day tickets can also earn the digital “Luck for Lindsey” pin through Vail Resorts’ revolutionary technological advancement for the ski industry, EpicMix. Kids who sign up to track their skiing and snowboarding stats on EpicMix by Saturday, April 9 will be entered into a contest to receive an autographed poster from Vonn.
