Lindsey Vonn and Ted Ligety

14 Dec

Lindsey Vonn and Ted Ligety are my favorite male and female alpine ski athletes.

Ted Ligety was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 31, 1984 and grew up in Park City, Utah. He started skiing at age 2 and started ski racing when he was 11 years old. The first ski team he raced for was called the Park City Farm Team. Ted’s first World Cup race was on November 22, 2003 in Park City, Utah. He races for the A team for the United States. Ted’s sponsors are Audi, Head, Power Corp, Putnam Investments, Slytech,and Komperdell.

Lindsey Vonn was born on October 18, 1984 in Vail, Colorado and grew up in St. Paul, MN.  She started skiing before age 2. When Lindsey was 11 she and her family moved to Vail, Colorado. Her family moved to Vail so Lindsey could improve her skiing. This paid off because Lindsey is one of the best female skiers in the world. Lindsey’s first World Cup race was on November 18, 2000 in Park City, Utah. Lindsey sponsors are Briko, Head, Leki, Okaley, JetSet, Red Bull, Rolex, Under Armour, and Vail Restorts.

    It is obvious you are passionate about snow skiing and the US team. I live in southwest Missouri where skiing refers to water instead of snow 🙂 Have you ever been water skiing? If so, how does it compare to snow skiing?

      Hi Mr.C
      Alpine skiing is my favorite sport I try to go skiing every day in the winter.
      My moms family lives in Missouri!
      I have been water skiing it is so much fun and it is a lot different than alpine skiing.
      Thanks for commenting!

    Hey Sam! This is a really interesting blog. Do you go skiing a lot? I live in Iowa were we normally have lots of snow in the winter. But this were all of the ski hills have fake snow on them. I was going to go skiing a couple of weekends ago, but they closed the lifts. Come visit my blog sometime. -Krayton
