7 gold medals in 2 competitions (1956 - 1958). Stopped at age 23.

Nobody has beaten him. The best ever. I can't understand you forgot him in the list.

Hell yeah on wood skis, leather boots, cable bindings...and he skied the toughest places.

This guy dominated all alpine skiing disciplines and won gold at all disciplines well before Killy. And by far, not barely, like Killy.

Fantastic technique, best present skier!

Why was he not on this list before, this guy is legendary, his carves are flawless, how is he not in the top ten, possibly the best GS skier ever

She clearly is the best in Slalom. Poetry on skis. She may eventually be the best in the remaining alpine disciplines. Time will tell. But it is clear that even at such a young age, the number of her globes don't lie, that she is the one to beat.

"The Meister" may not have had the glamorous career of Stein, Sailer, Kidd, or Killy, but he shaped a generation of skiers--and ski instructors--through his 30+ year career as Director of the Jackson Hole Ski School!

More WC medals than the rest of the US Team in 2014-15 and 2015-16. Three X-games golds. Arctic Man winner. Absolutely fantastic!
