Stifel U.S. Ski Team alpine skier Allison Mollin is on the rise within the alpine circuit. The Truckee, California native and former Palisades Tahoe skier completed her first rookie season with the national team in the 2023-24 year and did not disappoint, claiming both the super-G and downhill NorAm Cup titles as well as second place in super-G at the U.S. Alpine Championships. Mollin is one of the team’s up-and-coming speed skiers and has already made her debut on the World Cup stage in Crans Montana, Switzerland. Mollin will be one to watch in future seasons. 

We sat down to ask her a few questions about her background, her most recent success, and her goals for the coming seasons.

Q: What initially drew you to this sport?
ALLISON MOLIN: I fell in love with skiing before I fell in love with ski racing. I would take part in ski school on Fridays while my parents worked from home. I then went on to do my first Kinder Cup races at six years old and never looked back. 

Q: When you were younger and getting into the sport, what were your goals?
AM: My goal as a kid was always to be on the Stifel U.S. Ski Team and to win a FIS Crystal Globe. 

Q: What is your biggest accomplishment?
AM: One of my proudest achievements thus far was winning the downhill and, more importantly, super-G NorAm Cup titles. In the previous season, my best standing in NorAm super-G was 15th, so winning that title felt like a tangible way to see my progress since being named to the team. 

Q: What is your ultimate goal?
AM: My ultimate goal is to win the FIS Crystal Globe in downhill. 

Q: Can you describe a particularly emotional moment? 
AM: Standing in the start of my first World Cup last season in Crans Montana felt surreal. Having watched countless World Cups on TV growing up, standing in the start felt like a ride at Disneyland that’s based on your favorite movie. 

Q: Who are your heroes?
AM: Growing up, I always idolized Daron Rahlves. For me, winning Kitzbühel was the coolest thing ever. I continue to look up to him now because he was able to maximize his skiing as one of the smaller guys in the field. I have learned a lot from that because it's super applicable to me.
