Piera Castelvetri

Honored in 

A competitive career of five years may seem short by current standards, but when Piera Castelvetri was skiing in 1955 as a junior and from 1956 to 1960 in senior competition, it was about average.


Piera's success, however, was anything but average. During that five years she won eighteen Italian national titles, with clean sweeps of all events in 1957 and 1958. She won the European title in tricks in 1957 and went on to win slalom, tricks and overall for the next three years in a row. In two World Championships, she won four silver medals, including one in overall, and then capped her accomplishments with the gold medal in the Women's tricks in her final World Tournament in 1959.


I am pleased to announce the induction into the International Hall of Fame of one of Europe's strongest Woman skiers of the 1950s: Piera Castelvetri.
