Alpine skier Evi Mittermaier, whose sisters Rosi and Heidi were also West German Olympic skiers, specialized in the downhill speed event during the 1970s. She first appeared internationally at the 1974 World Championships, finishing 14th. The following year, at Cortina d’Ampezzo, she became the first female German winner of a downhill World Cup race.

After winning the downhill at the West German Championships in 1976, Mittermaier participated in that year’s Innsbruck Winter Olympics, with her best result being eighth in the giant slalom. Four years later, at Lake Placid, she finished a disappointing 17th in the downhill. In 1978 she was sixth at the Worlds.

Evi Mittermaier married a physician, and raised three children. She became a technical delegate within the International Skiing Federation (FIS) and also worked as a skiing coach. Furthermore, she was active as the press spokeswoman with the Skiing Federation of Chiemgau. Like her sisters, and other family members, she became an avid golfer.
