Katy Rodolph grew up skiing in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. In 1949 she won the first US giant slalom championship, and was named to the 1950 US team for the World Championships, where she placed in the top 10 in all three events. After the 1952 Winter Olympics Rodolph competed in the 1954 World Championships, finishing fifth in giant slalom.
