Lindsey Vonn has been released from a hospital in Vail, Colo., on Wednesday, two days after being admitted for intestinal pain.

Vonn's publicist Lewis Kay says in an email that she's "feeling much better and "resting comfortably at home." He's not sure when the four-time overall World Cup champion will return to skiing.

Kay says doctors were still trying to determine what caused of her illness, but she's responded well to treatment. Kay says it's not clear "when she will be able to return to the mountain" but will "update as her health improves."

Vonn's ski technician Heinz Haemmerle said Tuesday that Vonn hadn't trained in more than two weeks. She was in Colorado to prepare for the upcoming World Cup races in Aspen on Nov. 24.
