Earlier this year, 2010 gold medal-winning downhill skier Lindsey Vonn had to skip the Sochi Olympics due to knee surgery. Recently, she took time from rehabbing to pose as a ski ticket agent-trainee in Vail, CO. Vonn did refer to herself in the third person to see if anyone would recognize her.

One man apparently did and was quite creepy about it. Other than that, unsuspecting skiers were happy to get their tickets.

Vonn was quite cheerful even speaking to one customer in German. Her supervisor Jonathan was good natured through it all as you can see in the video below. Enjoy.
