Lindsey Vonn doesn't plan to do any serious training on skis during her midseason break from the World Cup.

Rainer Salzgeber, racing director of Vonn's equipment supplier Head, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the four-time overall winner hasn't asked for her ski technician Heinz Haemmerle to follow her to the United States.

''No, she won't ski. She said she needs to rest and get her fitness, and I think also her mind,'' Salzgeber said at a men's slalom race. ''She wants to do some dry-land training, and that's it.''

Vonn announced on Monday that she needs a break because she has yet to fully recover from an intestinal illness that landed her in a hospital last month.

Salzgeber said Vonn likely won't return until races in St. Anton, Austria, on Jan. 12-13.
