Beat Feuz of Switzerland won the season-opening men's World Cup downhill Saturday when the men's ski racing community also remembered one of their own.
The French raced Saturday with Adrien Theaux posting their best result in seventh.
"It's just a shame and it's too bad that happened in our sport".
Feuz is the reigning world downhill champion. Svindal was just over three-tenths behind Feuz in third.
It was Svindal's first appearance in competition for nearly a year because of a knee injury, and it was a decent return for the man nicknamed "Mr Lake Louise" having won eight times at the Canadian venue. Feuz said. "With the Rocky Mountains and everything, it's a great place for me". Italy's Peter Fill finished fourth (1:44.28) followed by another Norwegian Kjetil Jansrud (1:44.39).

Broderick Thompson of Whistler, B.C., was 23rd, Calgary Tyler Werry placed 34th, Ben Thomsen of Invermere, B.C., finished 41st and Toronto's Jack Crawford was 63rd in a field of 74 racers.
