Nicolas Bochatay was a Swiss speed skier who competed in the demonstration event in that sport at the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics. He was the 1991 Swiss speed skiing champion, but he had started out in Alpine events, competing at the 1982 World Junior Championship. Bochatay worked as a carpenter. His aunt, Fernande Bochatay, had won a bronze medal in giant slalom at the 1968 Grenoble Winter Olympics.
After competing at Albertville in qualifying, Bochatay was warming up with several other skiers for the speed skiing final on 22 February 1992. He went airborne over a bump on the course and landed in front of a Snowcat ski grooming machine. Bochatay was killed when he crashed into the Snowcat.
