"I will let you know when I have more info," she tweeted.

A series of knee injuries and major surgeries forced Vonn to miss the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Last season, she returned to win eight World Cup races, improving her total to a record 67 victories.

Vonn has said that she hopes to race in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
