What do two Olympic medals and a third consecutive World Cup crown garner you? In the case of Vail resident Lindsey Vonn, quite the homecoming shindig, and the opportunity for people who come out to the festivities to win an Epic 7-Pack pass for 2010-2011. Anyone who rides on the of "Welcome Home Lindsey" cars on the Eagle Bahn Gondola tomorrow can register for the free pass, which retails for $449 and offers seven days of unlimited skiing (no blackout dates) at any one of the five Vail Resorts areas for $449.
Starting at 3:30 p.m., in Vail Square, pins and memorabilia will be given out, and you can munch on free cookies and cocoa while watching some of Vonn's memorable races on a big screen TV and listening to a DJ spin music. At 4, Vail honchos, including Mayor Dick Cleveland, co-president of Vail Resort' Mountain Division John Garnsey, and former Olympic ski racer and Vail resident Chad Fleischer, will introduce Vonn. After the pomp, Vonn will host a special children's press conference, so if you want your budding racer to get inspired, take her out to Vail on Wednesday.
