An Extraordinary Life

Taylor lived an extraordinary life. Among her many talents, she was a successful skiwear designer that continues to influence the ski fashion industry today. Often self-designed, her ski clothing and accessories demonstrated her bold, athletic and outdoor savvy elegance.

Not only was she successful with fashion, she was also selected as an alternate for the U.S. Olympic Ski Team, competed at Wimbledon and was a licensed pilot and World War II flight instructor. She was also the first skier on Vail Mountain to wear a helmet … of her own design of course.

The event is underwritten by the Family of Ann and Vernon Taylor II and Vail Resort’s EpicPromise. For additional information, contact Liz Campbell at liz@snowsports museum.org or 970-476-1876.
