Count on skier Lindsey Vonn to have one of the most beautiful mountain homes in Vail, Colorado. The retired athlete, who just said goodbye to the sport earlier this year, is widely considered on of the greatest skiers in the world with 82 World Cup race victories, two Olympic bronze medals, and one Olympic gold medal. It has been a whirlwind year, however, and both newly retired and newly engaged, Vonn is reportedly selling the stunning abode to live near her fiancé, who plays on the New Jersey Devils hockey team. Someone now has the rare chance to snap up her Olympian-approved ski haven for a cool $6 million.The polar opposite of the sleek LA modern she sold last year
, this 7,042-square-foot home is rustic and grand. It’s tucked on a private cul-de-sac and offers plenty of space for hosting guests with five bedrooms, six baths, and one half bath. Expansive rooms with high ceilings and walls of windows are ideal for gathering and taking in the sweeping mountainous surroundings.In the winter, the grand stone fireplaces are cozy and chic spots to warm up after a day out on the slopes, but all summer long the huge wraparound deck will be the star. A massive family room with a wet bar is fun place to entertain no matter what time of year it is, and the luxurious master suite will be a year-round haven for private relaxation.With a gold medal-worthy house comes a gold medal-worthy gym, of course. Vonn may have gotten in shape or recuperated from her may injuries in this very home, so hopefully it will bring new owners the active yet lavish lifestyle they seek.Gil Fancher of Vail Real Estate Center
