Skiers Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin Channel Captain America and Captain Marvel in Their Ski Suits

Chris Evans and Brie Larson, you’ve got some tough competition—and we’re not talking about Thanos. This time it’s U.S. skiing phenoms Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin who are giving the Marvel superheroes a run for their money by competing in ski suits inspired by Marvel’s Captain America and Captain Marvel. And we’ve got to say, Vonn and Shiffrin know how to wear their respective superhero-themed suits very well.

The suits are part of a collaboration between Marvel and Spyder, the U.S. Ski Team’s official supplier, that debuted February 2017 at the Alpine World Cup Championships in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Over the past year, both Vonn and Shiffrin have taken to the slopes numerous times outfitted in the Marvel ski suits.

Here’s Vonn looking especially heroic in her Captain America ski suit back in January:

Now take a look at Shiffrin doing what she does best, all while outfitted in a Captain Marvel ski suit:

While Shiffrin is almost too fast to photograph, you can tell she’s wearing the Captain Marvel suit from the bands on her arms and shoulder. Here’s a better look at it:

It’s safe to say that we were already in awe of both Vonn and Shiffrin for their superior alpine skiing skills, but now we’re totally obsessed.
