This was the last Alpine skiing event of the Oslo Olympics, contested over two runs. Favored were Dagmar Rom (AUT) and American Andrea Mead-Lawrence. Rom had won both the slalom and giant slalom at the 1950 Aspen World Championships. Mead-Lawrence (then Mead) placed sixth in the slalom at the 1950 Worlds, and had already won the gold medal in the giant slalom in Oslo. On the first run, both Rom and Mead-Lawrence fell, but Mead-Lawrence recovered quickly and finished the run in fourth place, only 1.2 seconds behind the leader, Ossi Reichert (GER). Rom also got up, but her fall was more severe and she placed last among the finishers of the first run. Reichert placed second in the second run, but she was two seconds behind Mead-Lawrence, who had the best time, enabling her to win the gold medal. Rom fell again on the second run, and placed 36th, almost a minute behind Mead-Lawrence. In 1956 Reichert would win a gold medal in the giant slalom at Cortina d’Ampezzo.
