Skiing star Lindsey Vonn places surprise phone call to young super fan

Nothing says cute more than watching an 11-year-old girl receive an unexpected phone call from her downhill skiing idol Lindsey Vonn.

Kristina Wolff is on one end of the phone -- and of this video, taped by her parents at their home in New Hampshire -- and Vonn is on the other, simultaneously being videotaped sitting at the Santa Monica headquarters of Red Bull, a Vonn sponsor which arranged the phone call.

The shock, joy, excitement and the is-this-really-happening moment are palpable. Red Bull called it an "epic freak out." Enjoy, like Kristina did:

Kristina is a budding downhill skier who would no doubt enjoy the chance to follow in Vonn’s ski tracks.

With a gold medal in the 2010 Olympic downhill and three World Cup titles, Vonn is the most successful ski racer in U.S. history. And she does a pretty good impersonation of actress Sharon Stone in “Basic Instinct,” too.
