Swiss ski star Beat Feuz will miss the rest of the 2012/2013 season as he is not fully recovered from a knee operation last spring, the Swiss Ski Federation says.

Runner-up to Marcel Hirscher of Austria in the overall World Cup standings last season, the 25-year-old from Berne did not take part in the season opener at Sölden in Austria.

The Swiss federation issued a statement on Wednesday saying that Feuz still had painful inflammation in his left knee following the operation which he had in the spring.

He returned to training in the summer, but had a bad crash while skiing in Argentina in August.

Feuz was also second in the downhill World Cup rankings last season behind Klaus Kroell and was considered among the favourites for the World Cup crystal globe this year
