ALTA BADIA, Italy (AP) - Lindsey Vonn is heading home to the United States for an unexpected break in the middle of the World Cup ski season, and is unlikely to return to Europe until January.

U.S. women's head coach Alex Hoedlmoser tells The Associated Press that Vonn's heavy schedule has not allowed her to recover from the intestinal illness that landed her in the hospital in Vail, Colo., last month.

Hoedlmoser says the timing of Vonn's return "depends on how she's feeling and exactly what her condition is."

He said Vonn will miss this week's technical races in Are, Sweden. The following races on the schedule are also technical races in Semmering, Austria, Dec. 28-29.

Hoedlmoser says "it's possible she'll skip Semmering, so that would mean her next races would be in January."
