"On behalf of all of us at Vail Resorts, we are positively thrilled for Vail's hometown hero, Lindsey Vonn, on being honored by her millions of fans worldwide with two prestigious Espy Awards this evening - Best Female Athlete and Best Female U.S. Olympic Athlete. We could not be more proud of her many accomplishments over the years, both on and off the snow, and most notably her ability to overcome adversity this year and capture not only Olympic gold and bronze in the downhill and super-G respectively, but to clinch her third consecutive Overall World Cup Title. Lindsey embodies all that we highly value at Vail Resorts - hard work, dedication, passion and perseverance - and is truly the greatest U.S. skier in the history of the sport," said Rob Katz, chairman and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts.
