Ida Schöpfer made the Swiss ski team in 1949 and in the early 1950s was the top Swiss female skiier, winning 10 national titles – 1951 giant slalom; 1952 downhill, slalom, combined; 1953 downhill, giant slalom; combined; and 1954 giant slalom, slalom, combined. She also won a silver medal in giant slalom at Holmenkollen in 1951. Her greatest tournament was the 1954 World Championships in Åre, Sweden, where Schöpfer won the downhill and combined, and added a silver in the slalom. This came after the Swiss Ski Federation threatened not to send a women’s team to the championship because of lack of funds, but they eventually relented and entered Schöpfer and Madeleine Berthod.
