BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Lindsey Vonn says on her Facebook page that she has returned to the snow for the first time since her training crash last week.

The reigning Olympic downhill champion posted Thursday that she is “happy to be on the mountain doing what I love — skiing!!” She also attached a picture of herself on a slope in Vail.

Vonn had a training mishap in Copper Mountain last week and partially tore a reconstructed ligament in her right knee. She’s skipping the races this weekend in Beaver Creek to give her knee more time to rest.
