Biography

Ernst Good’s alpine skiing career was brief, but punctuated with success. He followed his top-10 World Cup début of a ninth-place finish in the giant slalom by quickly moving up to fifth in a subsequent event, and then earned a trip to the 1976 Winter Olympics by coming in second less than two weeks later. At the Games, poor runs by favorites [Ingemar Stenmark] of Sweden and [Gustavo Thoeni] of Italy allowed Good and his compatriot [Heini Hemmi] to nab the silver and gold medals respectively. Good and Hemmi also competed in the slalom, but neither completed the event. Good had two more third-place finishes in the giant slalom at the World Cup prior to retiring from active competition in 1977. His best seasonal World Cup finish was fifth in the 1975/76 giant slalom. His sister [Rita] competed in alpine skiing at the 1972 Winter Olympics.
