Barbara Ann Cochran is one of four siblings of the famous Skiing Cochran‘s from Richmond, Vermont. Barbara Ann graduated from college in Vermont, and published her book Skiing for Women and Teach Your Child to Ski. She was inducted into the National Ski Hall of Fame as well as the Vermont Sports Hall of Fame. In her Gold Medal  run, she not only was the first American to win in 20 years, but she won by .02 seconds, the smallest winning margin in Olympic history. She won the Silver Medal in slalom in the 1970 world championships, along with three World Cup victories, 18 podiums, 45 top tens and was a two time US National Champion. When Barbara Ann Cochran retired from the World Cup circuit at the age of 23, she had won 345 points, more points than any other US skier, male or female, had ever accumulated in skiing history. She currently owns and runs B.A. Cochran Coaching. Improving Performance. Creating Success. Her son Ryan Cochran-Siegel won the Silver Medal in the 2022 Olympics in the Super G (50 years since his mother’s medal). Out of all the Skiing Cochran’s children (the next generation), six out of the 10 are or have been on the US ski team.
