Biography

Tom Corcoran attended Dartmouth College, graduating in 1953. He was a member of the 1958 World Championship team, in addition to his Olympic appearances in 1956 and 1960. Corcoran won four US championships, and skied for seven years on the international circuit. At Squaw Valley in 1960, his fourth place finish in the giant slalom was the best to that date by an American man in alpine skiing at the Winter Olympics. After his ski career ended, Corcoran developed the Waterville Valley Ski Resort in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, opening the resort in 1966. He later became director and chairman of the National Ski Areas Association. In 1978, Corcoran was inducted into the US Ski Hall of Fame.
