When criticized that his lifestyle was hurting his training, Tomba replied: “I used to party with three women until 5 a.m. Now, I’ll live it up with five women until 3 a.m.” Always playing to the crowd, Tomba put sex back into skiing. When wooing ice skater Katarina Witt at the 1988 Olympics, Tomba offered her a gold medal, explaining he already had two.

Freckled and slight, Fisher looks like she should be selling Girl Scout cookies. Until she skis. Fisher quit the U.S. Ski Team and promptly won the World Extreme Skiing Championships in 1996 and 1997. Whenever Fisher appears on screen in one of her many ski films, a roar goes up from the teen crowd: “Marry me! Marry me!”

Anyone who followed women’s World Cup in the Eighties will recall the classic Swiss beauty and impeccable gliding skills of Maria Walliser.

He’s 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, with a chiseled frame and a signature snow leopard ‘do. He’s quite comfortable racing 85 mph down an icy mountainside. He’s well-mannered, comes from a good family (no relation to that Florida Chad) and isn’t afraid to express his innermost feelings. Sorry, ladies. He’s already married to a Denver Broncos cheerleader.

This California native was born to wear the tight-fitting downhill suits that became standard issue for all race events during her career, which included six national titles and a World Championship medal.

Forget the tackiness that seeped into the final years of her lip balm and freestyle career. If you were a healthy male skier when this photo appeared in the early Seventies, and you’d also seen Suzy in her silver 1968 U.S. Olympic downhill suit, you never, ever forgot her.

“Spider could make going to the grocery store an adventure,” Billy Kidd once said. The inspiration for Robert Redford’s character in Downhill Racer, Vladimir “Spider” Sabich raced fast and lived faster, twice winning the pro circuit and spending a night in a French jail over a disputed bill. Sadly, he’s better remembered for his tragic 1976 Aspen shooting death than his irrepressible spirit.

They are ex-NCAA racers who will jump into any mountain challenge that presents itself, and Megan is a world-class skiercross competitor.

Blessed with a surfer’s good looks and the on-camera ease of a natural performer, Moseley became a media phenom after winning a gold medal with his made-for-TV 360 Mute Grab in Nagano.

When Eriksen schussed into the U.S. like a Norse god in the Fifties, women swooned and men tried to imitate his silky style. More than America’s first skiing sex symbol, Eriksen won a gold and a silver in the 1952 Olympics, and was the first skier to do an invert in full layout. At 73, Eriksen remains living proof that Viagra and Rogaine aren’t for everyone.

The talk of girls’ slumber parties across Austria in the Fifties, Sailer was tall, matinee-idol handsome and also happened to win ski races by ridiculous margins of five and six seconds. And in 1956, in Cortina, Italy, he accomplished what no other skier had ever done at the time: sweeping the alpine events in the Olympic Games.
