VAIL, Colo. – April 2, 2012 –
Olympic gold medalist and World Cup Alpine Ski Champion, Lindsey Vonn, took some time today to ski with a few of her biggest fans on Vail Mountain
as part of the resort’s exclusive Ski Girls Rock
program, introduced this season. A few lucky girls from around the globe, including representatives from Brazil, England and Canada, in addition to a select handful of girls who participated in the Ski Girls Rock lesson program this season, were chosen to return to Vail to ski with their idol as a part of Vonn’s homecoming celebration on April 1.
The popular Ski Girls Rock program debuted during the 2011-2012 ski season, offering a new premium lesson inspired and designed by Lindsey Vonn, exclusively for girls ages 5-15. Lessons consist of no more than four students per group and are led by dedicated female instructors who not only focus on improving skiing skills but empowering girls through the sport and creating opportunities to bond, build confidence and develop teamwork and social skills.
