Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn finally spotted skiing together (we think)

The world has anxiously awaited photos, footage, anything of the world's most famous athlete skiing with Lindsey Vonn. It appears we have our first sighting of the pair not on the golf course.

We've had almost a year now of gawking at the Tiger Woods-Lindsey Vonn super couple, but the public sightings have almost always occurred on the golf course or at a golf-related event. We had yet to see or hear of Tiger out of his element and on the slopes with his gold medal-winning girlfriend ... until this week, allegedly.

Several citizen journalists purportedly spotted the couple in Breckenridge on Wednesday. Greg Ferraro of NBCOlympics.com diligently compiled the witness accounts of sports' No. 1 power couple, including an intense shot of the two stopping for a snack. Sarah Schleper, a former Olympian and Vonn's teammate, ignited the reports by tweeting this supposed picture of the two on the slopes:

There was also an Instagram shot of the two stopping for a snack, or a slice. This certainly looks like Mr. Tiger:

And then a third such account from a tweet by U.S. junior freeskier Alexi Micinski:

It was only a matter of time before the world's No. 1 golfer was sighted on the slopes, and it's no surprise these surface now with the current gap in his schedule. It's not the ideal downtime activity, however, for someone with a history of knee trouble.
