Lindsey Caroline Kildow was born on October 18, 1984, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and was raised in the Twin Cities metropolitan area in Burnsville, Minnesota. She has Norwegian roots.
She is the daughter of Alan Kildow, a former junior national ski champion, and his wife, Linda Anne (née Krohn). She has four siblings: Dylan, Karin, Reed, and Laura.
She started skiing at the age of 2. She was trained at ‘Buck Hill,’ a ski and snowboard area, by her father’s former coach, Erich Sailer, who was also a ‘US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame’ inductee. She received early skiing lessons from her grandfather, Don Kildow, in Milton, Wisconsin.
Lindsey graduated from the ‘University of Missouri’s ‘Center for Distance Learning and Independent Study’ online program.
By the time Lindsey was 7, she had already skied in Colorado, Minnesota, and Oregon all-year-round. She traveled to Colorado by train for several years to receive skiing lessons at the ‘Ski Club Vail’ (SCV), an alpine racing program that trains young and aspiring skiers of age 6 and above.
In 1995, at the age of 10, she met ‘Olympic’ gold medalist ski racer Picabo Street at a promotional event.
In 1997, when Lindsey was in sixth grade, her family decided to move to Vail, Colorado, permanently. Her siblings, too, relocated soon.
During her first year at ‘SCV,’ she skied under the ‘Gravity Corps’ pre-age-class program. She was trained by female coach Colby S Scudder.
In 1999, Will McDonald and Lindsey were the first American athletes to win the “Cadets” slalom events in Italy’s Trofeo Topolino di Sci Alpino.
Street loved watching the 15-year-old Lindsey perform. She admired her love for speed and her amazing knack for following the fall line, which is a rare find.
Climbing through various ranks of the US ski team in her career, she made her ‘World Cup’ debut at the age of 16, on November 18, 2000, in Park City, Utah.
At 17, she debuted at the 2002 ‘Winter Olympics’ in Salt Lake City and raced in both slalom and combined, securing the sixth spot.
In 2003, she earned a silver medal in downhill at the ‘Junior World Championship’ in Puy-Saint-Vincent, France.
In January 2004, she secured the third place in downhill at the ‘World Cup’ in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy. The same year, she won a silver medal in downhill at the ‘US Alpine Championships’ at the ‘Mount Alyeska Resort,’ Girdwood, Alaska.
In 2005, she reached the fourth place in both the downhill and the combined events at the first ‘World Championships,’ held in Bormio, Italy. She also secured the ninth position in super-G. However, she failed to finish the giant slalom.
Lindsey won the overall ‘World Cup’ title and became the second American woman to be honored with the most ‘World Cup’ downhill victories, following Tamara McKinney in 1983. She also won the ‘US Alpine Championships’ combined title (downhill and slalom) in 2008.
At the 2009 ‘World Championships’ held in Val-d’Isere, France, Lindsey became the first woman to win the world super-G title.
In the super combined event, she won the downhill round and almost finished second with a remarkable slalom performance. However, she was later disqualified for splitting a gate.
She was previously determined that she would not retire until she had broken Stenmark’s record of ‘World Cup’ victories.
However, in October 2018, ahead of the 2018–209 ‘FIS Alpine Ski World Cup,’ she announced that she would retire at the end of the season, irrespective of whether she was able to break Stenmark’s record or not.
