2002 Billy Kidd and Jimmie Heuga

Billy Kidd

One of the more prominent U.S. Ski Team members from the 1960s and 70s, Kidd made the "Stars and Stripes" look popular with his red, white and blue "Captain America" sweater and downhill helmet. He was the first U.S. male to win an Olympic medal, the silver in slalom at the 1964 Innsbruck Games. In 1970, he became the first Amerian male to claim a World Championships medal with a gold in the combined in Val Gardena, Italy. Kidd, a Vermont native, was also a member of the 1968 Olympic team in Grenoble, France. Following his retirement from amateur racing, he competed on the pro tour and is now Director of Skiing in Steamboat. Since his "Captain America" days, Billy has changed his signature headgear to the equally recognizable cowboy hat.
