How Lindsey Vonn adapts to life after ski retirement


Lindsey VonnIt is about finding new ways of living life at the edge.
In fact, the three-time Olympic silver medalist skis even though she has retired in 2019 and misses the excitement on the slopes as temperatures drop.

“This is a very hard time of year for me because the first races are happening and it always feels really weird to me that I’m not actually on a slope right now,”Lindsey, 38 years old, exclusively spoke to E! The US Ski and Snowboard Gala was held on October 27. “But I am adapting to life after competition. I am still challenging myself in new ways, but there’s definitely nothing like racing down an icy mountain at 85 miles an hour. And there never be anything like it, so I’ll just try to get my kicks wherever I can.”

A fifth-time Olympian was also one of the athletes who stepped off the mountain earlier in this year. Shaun White, who announced he would retire from snowboarding after competing in the 2022 Winter Olympics.

And as Lindsay—who presented Shaun, 36, with the lifetime achievement award at the gala—mentioned, watching his final run in February was a moment she’ll never forget.
