Lindsey Vonn is skiing in Chile and way ahead of her rehab schedule with the Sochi Olympics five months away.

 ‘‘I can’t tell which knee is injured,’’ she said in a statement released through her US team. ‘‘That’s a good sign.’’

 The four-time World Cup overall champion returned to the slopes over the weekend nearly seven months after her injury. She eased her way back with two gentle and relaxed training runs. The next day, she revved it up a little more, taking a few gradual turns along the course in Portillo, Chile.

 Her surgically repaired right knee held up fine. So much so that Vonn now envisions some slalom gate training by the time the two-week camp with the ski team ends.
