In the overall, Vonn holds an 87-point lead over Gut, who led Thursday's opening training session.

The downhill race is scheduled for Saturday with an Alpine combined event on Sunday, and a slalom on Monday that was moved from Maribor, Slovenia.

Vonn has won five of the six downhills this season and can clinch the season-long title in the discipline this weekend. The American holds a 172-point lead over Larisa Yurkiw of Canada in the downhill standings with only two races remaining after this weekend.
