Karl Anderson
Karl Anderson always wanted to be a ski racer. Early on in his career he made a difficult choice to follow the Eastern ski racing circuit rather than compete with his good friends on the State and New England Champion Edward Little High School Ski Team. In his final year as a junior racer, Karl won the 1971 Eastern Jr. GS championship, securing the final position on the Eastern Squad for the US Jr. Nationals.
Upon graduation Karl attended Johnson State College, in an effort to make the Can-Am national race circuit. Missing the final slot on the Eastern Team, he considered quitting, but Earle Morse, his coach at Johnson, encouraged Karl to continue competing on the Europa Cup circuit. Traveling on his own and raced throughout Europe. His results that winter catapulted him from not being rated in the top 100 in the US to 5th overall. Unknown to any US coaches and most other national level ski racers he was named to the US Ski Team in 1972.
Starting his career as a slalom and GS specialist Anderson finished 4th in the US National Slalom and had a 9th place World Cup GS finish. During the fall national training camps in 1975 Karl trained downhill for the first time. Given the opportunity to race downhill that season he had seven top fifteen finishes.
...
In the following 1976 season Karl became the first American male to win an overall European Cup title by taking the downhill discipline. That same season, as a downhiller, he became the first Maine skier to represent the US in an Alpine event at the Olympics.
Internationally, over the next five years, Karl was often the top US downhiller on the World Cup. Even after seriously injuring his back in January of 1978 he had top ten finishes in World Cup downhills. That back injury would require a regimen of 10+ aspirin per day for the rest of his ski career and a metal back brace for four years thereafter. Even with the impairment he secured the final slot on the 1978 US World Championships DH Team. He also represented the US in the 1980 Olympics. He won the 1978 US National DH Title, and was runner up in that event in 1976,77 and 79.
Following his retirement from the Team in 1981 he continued to contribute to US Skiing and the Olympic movement. He was a member of the US Ski Association Board of Directors from 1982 to 1988, and later was the Assistant Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of US Skiing. At the Olympic level he served on the Executive Board of the US Olympic Committee from 1984 to 1988. He also served on the Athletes Advisory Council of the US Olympic Committee.
For his outstanding competitive record and his continuing contribution to US and Maine skiing Karl Anderson has earned a place in the Maine Ski Hall of Fame.
