After her back-to-back win in skiing competitions in the past, Vonn is ready to take the leash. The 35-year-old Olympian is set to host the "The Pack" - a competition for dogs and dog-owners.

The series includes a cross-continental adventure that will feature twelve teams of dogs and their owners. Qualified participants will be given several challenges that will test the bond between animal and man.

"The Pack" is Vonn’s first major hosting show this year after she retired from skiing in February 2019.

Selling my home and moving away from Vail was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I had so many amazing memories that I will take with me forever. My family is still in Vail and I will come back, that is for sure. However, the time for ski racing in my life has come to an end and I need to move on. Being around skiing is hard right now; it reminds me of my injuries and of pain. Hopefully one day that will change. Thank you to everyone who supported me in Vail. You have always welcomed me with open arms and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. Vail is a ski racing town with so much history and I am happy to share just a very small part of that with you. So until I see you again, please make a few runs on “Lindsey’s” for me ...🙏🏻❤️ Love you all *** Part of the article I put in the @vaildaily . Link in bio *** THANK YOU VAIL Dear Vail Valley Community, I am sad to say that I have sold my Vail home this month. I want to personally thank each and every member of the community who supported me throughout my career.When I moved from Minnesota to Vail with my family I was 12 years old. My father, who also moved to Vail as a young ski racer to train with his long-time friend Pepi Gramshammer, knew how much of an impact it could make on me. Going from a small hill in Minnesota to Colorado was the turning point of my career. With the help of Ski Club Vail, I developed the confidence and love for speed that helped me to win the Olympic downhill, 43 Downhill World Cup races, and finish my career with a total of 82 World Cup wins. When I passed 63 wins,“International” on Vail Mountain was renamed after me and it will always be the greatest gift I have ever received. If you told 15-year-old me slipping the course for the 1999 World Championships that this would one day be my namesake, I would have never believed you. What makes it so special is that “Lindsey’s” is not just mine, it can be shared and experienced by anyone brave enough to ski down it. My grandfather passed down his love for the sport to his kids, my father to his, and I hope to spark and pass down that passion to future generations, too. I did not know at 12 years old what ...

Streaming giant Amazon was chosen to be the one to stream the adventure-competition show through "Amazon Prime Video." Its producers will be former "Survivor" showrunner Jay Bienstock together with Jay Renfroe and David Garfinkle of Renegade 83.

Dog-lovers will be treated to exciting adventures. Albert Cheng, Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios, said the show is an "uplifting and exhilarating" series between humans and dogs - one of the most universally-recognized relationships. 

The race-themed episodes will air later this year. At the end of the show, the winning tandem will receive a $500,000 prize with an additional $250,000 to the animal charity of their choice.

"The Pack" is Vonn’s first major hosting show this year after she retired from skiing in February 2019. The three-time Olympic medalist had been in the skiing competition since 7 years old.

Vonn’s nearly two-decade skiing career had left her with major injuries. She credits her dog for giving her good times while overcoming obstacles in life. She said

"I have overcome many obstacles in life, but one thing that has reigned true during good times and bad has been the love of my dog."

After her retirement, Vonn seems to be dedicating her time to getting fit and strong. She recently shared on social media her workout videos with her fiance New Jersey Devils star P.K. Subban.

The couple, who have been engaged since August 2019, stopped by actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s home gym in Virginia. Vonn and Subban were on a special training session with the “Moana” star.

On Twitter, Vonn posted a video where Subban is shown doing cardio together with Johnson. In a separate clip, Subban is seen lifting weights with the help of the former wrestling superstar.

Meanwhile, behind his strong physique, Johnson has a soft spot for his daughters, Tianna and Jasmine. Since quarantine started, the former wrestler-turned-actor has spent quality time with them.

Johnson recently posted an adorable photo on Instagram of how they keep themselves entertained indoors. The actor wrote that it was a "serious weekend creation."
