AFTON, Minn. - Minnesota-native Lyndsey Vonn visited with about 50 young skiers from Afton Alps' development teams on Friday.
Her appearance was part of the Afton Alps annual Fall Fair and Swap, which was a family event that included hayrides, chairlift rides and a ski and snowboard swap.
Vonn represents Vail Resorts, which now includes Afton Alps. She made her appearance on behalf of the company, but returning home to Minnesota was obviously something she enjoyed.
She stayed an hour longer than her scheduled time to make sure that she met each and every person who came out to see her.
