PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- The U.S. Ski Team says Lindsey Vonn will sit out this weekend's World Cup races in St. Moritz, Switzerland, and is planning to compete in a downhill on Dec. 21 at Val d'Isere, France.

Vonn returned to racing last week at Lake Louise, Alberta, 10 months after tearing two ligaments in her right knee and breaking a bone in that leg during a crash at the world championships.

She finished 40th in her season debut Friday, a downhill, then 11th in another downhill Saturday, and fifth in a super-G on Sunday.

The 29-year-old American, who won two medals at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, said Sunday she would work with her coaches to figure out a schedule leading up to the Sochi Games, which start in less than two months.
