Lindsey Vonn Spends Thanksgiving Skiing, Returns to Slopes Nine Days After Training Crash


On Thanksgiving Day, Lindsey Vonn returned to the slopes where she crashed.  Vonn was spotted at Copper Mountain in Colorado skiing for the first time after she suffered injuries from the training accident.  The 29-year-old athlete posted a photo on her Facebook page with the message:

“First day back on snow since my crash and it was awesome!”

“I’m very thankful for many things this year (family, loved ones, great fans) but at this moment I’m happy to be on the mountain doing what I love—skiing! Happy thanksgiving everyone!”


The girlfriend of Tiger Woods is still not certain when she could race again, she admitted:

“If [things don't go well] I’m going to have to reassess,” she said. “I’m feeling good from rehab—I feel stable, and I’ve put some weight [on my knee].  It felt really good. I’m very hopeful, but I really don’t know until I get on snow.”

“There definitely is a long ways to go there, but I’m confident it’s going to be ok. At this point that’s all I can do is stay positive.”

It’s nice to know that she is recovering quickly!

When will she race again?
