After a crash in Super G training at Copper Mountain on Monday, November 19th, Lindsey Vonn announced on Instagram today she will be unable to race in Lake Louise, also known as “Lake Lindsey”. Vonn has won a total of 18 races at the venue. It’s her favorite stop on the tour for a reason.
Fortunately, her injury is not seasoning ending, she will look to return later in the year to continue her pursuit of Ingemar Stenmark’s record in her retirement season.
Will her absence in Lake Louise next weekend affect her ability to capture the title of winningest skier in history? Knowing Vonn, this is only a bump in the road, and she’ll be back with a vengeance.

Yesterday I crashed training Super-G and hurt my knee. The good news; I do NOT need surgery 🙏🏻. The bad news; I won’t be able to race in Lake Louise. Lake Louise has always been my favorite stop on the World Cup tour and I am devastated to not be coming this year. Don’t worry though, I am down but I am NOT out!! #nevergiveup
