Vonn, a four-time overall World Cup champion, lost balance on her right leg while landing after a jump. Her ski came off immediately, and Vonn slid off course and hit a gate before coming to a halt.
The American received medical treatment on the slope for 12 minutes before being taken to the hospital.
