As in the giant slalom, Gustavo Thoeni and Ingemar Stenmark were favored. Stenmark was World Cup champion in 1975 (and would win in 1976), succeeding Thoeni, who had led the World Cup slalom in 1973 and 1974. The leader on the first run was Willy Frommelt of Liechtenstein, with Thoeni second. Stenmark struggled on the first run, as he had in the giant slalom, placing ninth. But things were worse on the second run, when he missed a gate and did not finish. Thoeni was consistent, again placing second on run two, which was won by his teammate, Piero Gros. Gros’s time was fast enough to move him ahead of Thoeni and win the gold medal in an upset. Gros was quite well-known, having won the giant slalom and overall World Cup in 1974, but he had been surpassed by Stenmark and Thoeni in the run-up to the Innsbruck Games, and had not won a World Cup event since January 1975.
