Lindsey Vonn: Professional Life, Career

Talking about her profession, by the time Lindsey was 7, she had already skied in Colorado, Minnesota, and Oregon all-year-round. Similarly, she traveled to Colorado by train for several years to receive skiing lessons at the ‘Ski Club Vail’ (SCV), an alpine racing program that trains young and aspiring skiers of age 6 and above. In the year 1995, at the age of 10, she met ‘Olympic’ gold medalist ski racer Picabo Street at a promotional event.

During her first year at ‘SCV,’ she skied under the ‘Gravity Corps’ pre-age-class program. She was trained by female coach Colby S Scudder. The program, directed by Tom Krebs, had strict guidelines, according to which skiers were not to be trained inside the gates but were to develop their skills in challenging terrain and difficult conditions. Consisting of multiple groups, this program was for skiers who were not old enough to participate in official age-class events sanctioned by ‘USSA’ or ‘FIS.’

Considering Lindsey’s skiing speed, her coach, Scudder, supported the idea of her skiing with age-class skiers. Support from the program director, Chip Woods, made her enrollment for the age-class skiing program possible. She received lessons from technical skiing coaches such as Todd A Rash, Reid Phillips, and Gus Pernetz. They helped her perfect her technical skills and she began the “in gate” training.

In the year 1999, Will McDonald and Lindsey were the first American athletes to win the “Cadets” slalom events in Italy’s Trofeo Topolino di Sci Alpino. Street loved watching the 15-year-old Lindsey perform. She admired her love for speed and her amazing knack for following the fall line, which is a rare find. Climbing through various ranks of the US ski team in her career, she made her ‘World Cup’ debut at the age of 16, on November 18, 2000, in Park City, Utah.

Whereas, at 17, she debuted at the 2002 ‘Winter Olympics’ in Salt Lake City and raced in both slalom and combined, securing the sixth spot. During  2003, she earned a silver medal in downhill at the ‘Junior World Championship’ in Puy-Saint-Vincent, France. In January 2004, she secured the third place in downhill at the ‘World Cup’ in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy. In the same year, she won a silver medal in downhill at the ‘US Alpine Championships’ at the ‘Mount Alyeska Resort,’ Girdwood, Alaska.

Besides that, she also secured the ninth position in super-G. However, she failed to finish the giant slalom. She also won the ‘US Alpine Championships’ combined title (downhill and slalom) in 2008. At the 2009 ‘World Championships’ held in Val-d’Isere, France, Lindsey also became the first woman to win the world super-G title. In the super combined event, she won the downhill round and almost finished second with a remarkable slalom performance. However, she was later disqualified for splitting a gate.

 However, in October 2018, ahead of the 2018–209 ‘FIS Alpine Ski World Cup,’ she announced that she would retire at the end of the season, irrespective of whether she was able to break Stenmark’s record or not.
