The 31-year-old Swiss racer had to return prematurely from Aspen to undergo surgery on a herniated disc in Zurich.

Schild won Olympic downhill silver in Turin in 2006 but has managed just two top 10s in the World Cup in the past two seasons with a best of fourth in the Super-G at Beaver Creek last season.
