This is the final Test Your Skiing Knowledge feature of the 2021-22 season.

Each issue of SeniorsSkiing.com has a picture to help test your skiing knowledge. Generally, the pictures are from collections in a variety of participating ski museums, which we encourage readers to visit.

 

This test has one simple answer: Name the only female skier to win three Olympic gold medals in alpine skiing in a single Olympics. The first reader to correctly identify her will win the new “Licensed to Ski” poster with photos of ski-themed vanity license plates. Only responses sent to [email protected] will be considered.

The person pictured in the last Test Your Skiing Knowledge is Sir Arnold Lund (1888-1974), skier, mountaineer and writer, knighted in 1952 for “services to British Skiing…” He introduced the racing concept that speed should be the only determinant to test the skier’s ability to turn securely and rapidly on steep Alpine terrain. He established numerous ski organizations and race events and was influential in introducing ski events to the Olympics. The first reader to correctly identify him was Enzo Falco of Belmont, MA. He once had the privilege of meeting Lund in person.
