Tommy Moe Biography
Tommy Moe was born February 17, 1970, in Missoula, Montana and is a former alpine ski racer. He is now retired from international competition and lives in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where he serves as an ambassador of skiing for the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Moe made his international debut at age 18 at the 1989 World Championships in Vail, Colorado, where he placed 12th in the downhill competition.
In a surprising performance in 1994 at Lillehammer, Norway, Moe became the first American male skier to win 2 medals in a single Winter Olympics (He won gold in the downill and silver in the super-G). At the time a resident of Alaska, after his Olympic victories his father was shown on television waving the Alaska state flag.
Being of Norwegian ancestry, he quickly became a favorite with the crowd at Kvitfjell, despite edging out Kjetil AndrÃ© Aamodt of Norway by 0.04 seconds to take the gold medal in the downhill. He then placed second in the Super-G on his 24th birthday, finishing 0.09 seconds behind Markus Wasmeier of Germany. His success at the Olympics came despite not having yet won a World Cup race (he won a month later, a Super-G at Whistler, Canada).
Moe's best World Cup season was also in 1994, where he finished third in the Super-G, 8th in the downhill, and 8th in the overall standings. (Since 1971, the World Cup standings have not included the Winter Olympics or World Championships results.)
Tommy Moe learned to ski and race at The Big Mountain in northwestern Montana, where his father was a member of the ski patrol. Moe refined his skills as a teenager in Alaska at Alyeska, near Anchorage, where he attended the Glacier Creek Ski Academy. He joined the U.S. Ski Team in 1986 at age 16.
Moe retired from the World Cup tour and competitive ski racing in 1998, at age 28. He was inducted into the National Ski Hall of Fame five years later and is currently a co-owner of Tordrillo Mountain Lodge in the Alaska Range.
