VAIL — The Vail Valley has come together to support its own Olympic champion, Mikaela Shiffrin, in a partnership that will see the 19-year-old Eagle-Vail resident help endorse her community and the 2015 World Championships during the course of the coming year.
“I was born and raised here,” Shiffrin said. “I’m just so happy to be part of this group, part of the scene, and to be able to give back a little bit. And, I can’t wait for Vail/Beaver Creek 2015.”
The one-year collaboration includes funding partners Vail and Avon and the Vail Valley Foundation/2015 World Championships Organizing Committee.
