Alpine skiing gold medalist Lindsey Vonn decided to do a little moonlighting at a Vail, Colo., ski counter while on the mend from her second ACL surgery.
Too bad resort visitors looking to get their passes didn’t notice.
It’s not like the three-time Olympian and Vail resident tried very hard to keep her identity under wraps. Barely disguised in glasses and a baseball cap, Vonn was chatty throughout the customer interactions, telling patrons it’s her first day, breaking out a little German, and even introducing herself as "Lindsey."
But while one guy went so far as to say that she looked a little bit like Vonn, skier after skier arrived at and left the counter without so much as a second thought that a World Cup champion was selling them their lift tickets.
