After months of rehab for a sprained knee ligament, Lindsey Vonn will be returning to the World Cup.

Vonn suffered her injury during the super-G training run at Copper Mountain in Colorado in November and has not raced since. She will be back on the slopes in St. Anton this weekend.

“I’m NOT done yet!!!,” Vonn wrote Monday on Instagram alongside a video on her training during her recovery. “It’s been a tough 6 weeks but I’m on skis again and excited to get back in the starting gate. See you in St. Anton this weekend

St. Anton am Arlberg is hosting a downhill Saturday, followed by a super-G the next day, with training starting Thursday. It’s the first of three consecutive weekends of speed racing.

Vonn was initially planning to retire at the end of this season, but the injury setback prompted her to announce her participation in one more series of speed races in Lake Louise next season.

Vonn has won four overall World Cup titles and 10 medals at major championships, including downhill gold at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
