<p>SALT LAKE CITY — The family of Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke canceled a news conference scheduled for Monday in Utah to provide an update her condition.

According to a statement, family members decided not to meet with reporters after discussing results from the latest neurological tests and assessments with her doctors.

The family says more tests will be done and future updates on Burke's condition will come through her website, www.sarahburkeski.com .

The 29-year-old was injured last Tuesday in a training accident at the superpipe at Park City Mountain Resort and underwent surgery to repair a tear to an artery that caused bleeding on her brain.

She's at the University of Utah Clinical Neurosciences Center in Salt Lake City.
