Andrea Fischbacher (born 14 October 1985)[1] is a World Cup alpine ski racer from Austria.

Born in Schwarzach im Pongau, Salzburg, Fischbacher now lives in Eben im Pongau. She made her World Cup debut in March 2004 in Sestriere, Italy, where she would claim her first World Cup victory four years later, a dead-heat tie with Fabienne Suter. Fischbacher competed for Austria at the Winter Olympics in 2006 and again in 2010, where she won the gold medal in the super-G, ahead of Tina Maze of Slovenia and Lindsey Vonn of the U.S.[2][3]

Left off the Austrian team for the 2014 Winter Olympics, Fischbacher responded with a victory in the first race after the games, her first World Cup podium in over four years.[4]
