"He will decide at the last moment if he's going to race," the Swiss ski federation said, adding that the decision would come down to the snow conditions.
Feuz, who finished second behind Austrian Marcel Hirscher in the overall standings last season and was ranked second in the downhill behind Klaus Kröll, will be accompanied in Sölden by 2010 Olympic champions Didier Defago and Carlo Janka.
The 25-year-old Feuz, who underwent an operation on his left knee in the spring and is less at ease in the more technical events, crashed heavily in training in Argentina in August and could only return to the slopes last month.
