INNSBRUCK, Austria (AP) -- Austrian skier Mario Scheiber has resumed training, nearly six months after breaking his shoulder blade and nose in a spectacular crash during World Cup downhill training in Chamonix, France.

The Austrian ski federation says Scheiber completed a practice session at the Hintertuxer glacier on Tuesday without complications.

The 28-year-old Scheiber says he is "doing great ... though the first day on snow is somewhat unusual of course."

Scheiber was one of four Austrian skiers who missed February's world championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, because of injuries following a crash.
