Minnesota native Lindsey Vonn got back on her skis Monday for the first time since suffering serious injuries in a crash at the Alpine World Championships in Austria in February, USA Today reports.

After several months of rehabilitation for a ACL and MCL, and a fractured tibial plateau in her right knee, the Olympic gold medalist was back on the snow in Portillo, Chile.

Vonn -- who hopes to compete in the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, in six months -- said she felt good after Monday's training session, adding, "I can't tell which knee is injured -- that's a good sign."

NBC Sports posted a video of Vonn back on the slopes Monday.

Apart from her injury, Vonn, 28, has been attracting attention since February when she was spotted boarding champion golfer Tiger Woods' private jet after being released from the hospital in Salzbug, Austria.

Vonn confirmed her relationship with Woods in a Twitter post in March.
