Lindsey Vonn is scheduled to do the official downhill training run Wednesday at Lake Louise, Alberta, the U.S. Ski Team said Tuesday evening.
Vonn will decide after a second training run Thursday whether she will compete in the World Cup races at Lake Louise, which include downhills Friday and Saturday and a Super-G Sunday.
Skiers must do at least one official downhill training run before each competition in that discipline.
The reigning Olympic downhill champion reinjured her right knee Nov. 19 in a training crash at Copper Mountain, Colo. That left her with a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament that was completely torn and surgically reattached last February.
Vonn told the Associated Press last Sunday that she needed further reconstructive surgery on the ACL but would delay it until after February's Olympics, hoping the knee holds up until then. More surgery before the Winter Games would likely end her chances of competing in Sochi.
Vonn has won seven straight races (four DH, three SG) at Lake Louise from 2010 through last December and finished either first or second in 18 of her last 21 races there, dating to 2005.
