FILE - In this Dec. 7, 2011, file photo, Lindsey Vonn reacts in the finish area after her first place finish in the women's World Cup super-G ski competition in Beaver Creek, Colo. Vonn is off to her best World Cup start, winning five of six races. She's also well on the way to reclaiming the overall title she lost by just three points to Maria Hoefl-Riesch last season.

COURCHEVEL, France — Lindsey Vonn thinks she will end her stellar skiing career at the 2018 Winter Games before looking into ways of furthering an acting career.

The 27-year-old American believes stopping at 33 years old, after one final Olympics, would be perfect before settling into a different kind of life: swapping the white hills for the silver screen, and hopefully starting a family.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Vonn says "If I still feel great, I would love to keep going until the next Olympics (in 2018). That in my mind is the end point."

After which, Vonn says "I'll be ready for, hopefully, a life change."

Acting, she adds, "would give me a different challenge" and "something I could do for fun that doesn't consume all my time."
