Roswitha Steiner was leading the slalom World Cup at the start of the 1988 Calgary Olympics, but the woman who had won the giant slalom two days earlier, Vreni Schneider, was highly considered. Schneider would eventually become the greatest female technical skier in the world, but she was not yet there in the slalom. That would soon change. Schneider posted the best time on both runs of the slalom to win the gold medal by almost two seconds. The silver medal went to Slovenian Yugoslav Mateja Svet, who had won three medals at the 1987 World Championships, including a bronze in the slalom, and in 1989 would become World Champion in the slalom. The bronze medalist was Christa Kinshofer-Güthlein, who in 1980 as Christa Kinshofer, had won a silver medal in this event at Lake Placid. In the forthcoming 1988-89 season, Schneider would establish her dominance, winning a record 14 World Cup races, and she would win the slalom World Cup in six of the next seven years.
