Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn posted a beaming Thanksgiving Day photo of herself on her Facebook page, saying that that she is back on the slopes for the first time since a training crash last week.

The post reads: "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! And a special thx to @vailmtn for opening the lifts early for me xo Lindsey"

The Associated Press said the Burnsville native suffered a training mishap in Copper Mountain, partially tearing a reconstructed ligament in her right knee. On Wednesday on the Today Show, she did an interview standing up to demonstrate her recovery from the injury.

She is forgoing weekend World Cup races in Beaver Creek to give the knee time to rest. She hasn't raced since tearing ligaments in her right knee in an accident at the world championships in Austria last February.

Vonn hasn't ruled out a return to competition in Lake Louise, Alberta, on Dec. 6. She has previously said that she is not certain that she will be able to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi in February.
