Lindsey Vonn, Tiger Woods

Don't call it a comeback.

Lindsey Vonn has just confirmed that she's returning to skiing this weekend for the first time since her harrowing crash at the world championships in February of this year. The accident left the blond beauty with a massive right knee injury, leaving her to stay off the slopes and endure surgery to repair the two torn ligaments.

But that was months ago.

She revealed that she's readier than ever now to get back on her skis and give it her all for this weekend's race in Portillo, Chile.

"I'm just looking forward to going fast," she told USA TODAY Sports earlier this week. "Physically I'm 100 percent now. I've been in the gym far too long. I'm ready to be out in the fresh air."

Vonn also revealed that she's gearing up for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and that she may bring along her significant other, Tiger Woods, for support.

"We're going to see how his schedule goes, but he's hoping to come. He's kind of a fish out of water in the cold weather," she said. "It's going to be really cute!"

And when she's not logging in major hours in the gym, she's enjoying being the girlfriend to one of the most famous (or infamous) professional golfers.

"There's really nothing about him that bothers me. He doesn't even leave the seat up! It's awesome," she explained. TMI alert? Perhaps.

The two have been dating for almost six months now and first went public with their relationship on Facebook after media speculation that they were more than just friends.

Vonn split with her husband of four years in 2011 and was granted a divorce in January of this year.
