British girl skis with Lindsey Vonn
For one young British girl on holiday in Breckenridge this winter, that trip will be remembered for a long time. Georgia Rawlins (11 years old) from the UK got the chance to ski with her idol, Lindsey Vonn, in Vail recently as part of the resort’s exclusive Ski Girls Rock programme.
Rawlins was one of a few lucky girls from around the globe to be given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet and ski with Vonn as part of the legendary skier’s homecoming celebration. And Georgia was delighted to enjoy a ‘girls day’ with Lindsey.
Georgia and her family had travelled to the US with Crystal Ski, but they were all invited on an all expenses day trip to Vail as part of Vail Resorts’ ‘Operation Elevation’ that aims to surprise and delight guests and exceed expectations at Vail Resorts. Her brothers enjoyed a day of skiing with Vail’s Children’s Ski School.
The Ski Girls Rock programme is a new premium product lesson inspired and designed by Lindsey Vonn herself, and is exclusively run at Vail for girls aged five to 15. A highlight is small groups, of four people maximum. And the instructors are female. The tuition is available on limited dates through the season from $260 per child per day.
