The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association will put forth a formal proposal to the International Ski Federation next week for Lindsey Vonn to participate in a men’s World Cup downhill race next year.
The bid would pitch Vonn, the most decorated skier in American history with 77 wins and 130 podiums, opposite men over the last weekend of November 2018 at Lake Louise, the lone Canadian stop on the circuit where she’s notched 14 of her record 39 World Cup downhill wins.
The USSA will make the proposal at the worldwide governing body’s pre-season meetings next week in Zurich.
