Lindsey Vonn returns to Vail, celebrates with EpicMix kids on Saturday

Lindsey Vonn recently finished another season on the World Cup circuit and returns home to Vail for a community gathering at Eagle’s Next on Vail Mountain Saturday.

From noon to 2 p.m., the well-decorated downhill athlete will celebrate her wins in the 2011 World Cup combined, downhill and super-G events, which raised her total World Cup wins in all four disciplines – which includes the slalom – to 41.

Eagle’s Nest is located at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola, and complimentary foot passenger tickets are available at the Lionshead Ticket Office starting at 11 a.m. for those without a season pass or lift ticket. The event includes 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 Resort’s EpicMix is also part of the event. Guests can earn the digital “Luck for Lindsey” pin, and youth who sign up for the EpicMix application by Saturday could win an autographed poster from Vonn. Visit for more info.
