Spider Sabich was an American alpine ski racer and a member of the U.S. Ski Team on the World Cup circuit in the late 1960s. He competed at the 1968 Winter Olympics and was the pro ski racing champion in 1971 and 1972. Occasionally an American ski racer emerges who soars to success. Once in a generation that person possesses the special potion that transcends individual accomplishment and elevates the entire sport. The late Vladimir Peter Spider Sabich was one such superstar and super-persona.
Beyond his championship resume, Spider was at the peak of his influence as ski racings premier ambassador in America when he was victim of a scandalous murder (March, 1976) at age 31 while still an active pro racer. An American skiing hero, a humble version of Joe Namath, Spider drew media and fans to the sport. His charisma was radiating and inspiring, especially around youngsters at every venue. There was no better spokesperson for the sport, Coach Bob Beattie would say.
