Vonn, who has 14 World Cup race wins at Lake Louise, clocked the 19th fastest time in Wednesday's first practice session, 2.13 behind Spain's Carolina Ruiz-Castillo.

A training crash in mid-November interrupted Vonn's comeback and she was forced out of last weekend's racing on home snow in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

"Hopefully this weekend will be good. We'll make a decision on Thursday whether I start competing on Friday."

"I was a little bit nervous because it was my first time in a race situation since February so it's been a long time and I'm really happy.

"The knee feels good, it feels stable. We'll play it by ear tomorrow and concentrate on the race.

The girlfriend of 14-time major golf champion Tiger Woods, Vonn insisted several times this season that she would be ready to defend her downhill Olympic title in Sochi in February.

The four-time overall World Cup winner is also three wins short of the record of World Cup victories held by Austria's Anne-Marie Moser-Proell, a mark she could beat if she made it back to her best level this winter.
