VAIL, Colo. (AP) -- Lindsey Vonn is feeling better and hopes to return to the slopes this weekend.

Hospitalized because of an intestinal illness, the four-time overall World Cup champion might even resume her training program next week, her publicist Lewis Kay wrote in an email Friday night.

Vonn was released from a hospital in Colorado two days ago. She was experiencing severe intestinal discomfort when she was admitted.

If she's healthy enough, Vonn's next scheduled races are the giant slalom and slalom in Aspen on Thanksgiving weekend, followed by speed events in Lake Louise, Alberta.

Vonn recently skipped a slalom race in Levi, Finland.
