Summary

The defending champion was Christine Goitschel but she was still out from the effects of a broken ankle in late 1966, and did not compete in Grenoble. Her sister, Marielle Goitschel, was favored, having won silver in 1964 and sharing the 1967 World Cup slalom title with her teammate, Annie Famose. On the first run unheralded American Judy Nagel led, with Goitschel in second place, and they were over a second ahead of Canada's Nancy Greene, in third place. Nagel fell on the second run and would be disqualified. Greene had the best time on the second run, but Goitschel again placed second on the run, and her total time earned her a second Olympic gold medal. Greene won silver and Famose the bronze.
