The four-time overall World Cup champion just recently returned to training after missing time with an intestinal issue that landed her in the hospital.
The main concern with Vonn is whether she's completely back to full strength. The Olympic downhill gold medalist spent two nights in the hospital with what she described on Facebook as "some infection in my tummy."
Health permitting, Vonn will step into the starting gate for the giant slalom Saturday and slalom on Sunday. She spent most of last week training in Vail and also squeezed in a downhill practice session at the U.S. Ski Team's speed center at Copper Mountain.
