Vail Resorts is honoring Lindsey Vonn by naming a trail on Vail Mountain after the Olympic medal winner.
As of Sunday, the expert "International" trail is known as "Lindsey's". The trail was used for the women's speed events during the World Alpine Championships at Vail and Beaver Creek in 1989 and 1999.
Vonn is a two-time overall World Cup champion who lives in Vail.
At the Vancouver Games, the 25-year-old became the first American woman to win a gold medal in the downhill, her signature event. She also won a bronze in the Super G.
