Annie Famose (born 16 June 1944) is a French former Alpine skier. She was a member of the dominating French alpine skiing national team in the 1960s. She won two medals at the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, as well as three medals (including one gold in slalom) at the 1966 World Championships in Portillo, Chile.[1]

Famose was a versatile all-event skier who was a threat to win races in any discipline, but she excelled in the slalom. She won two World Cup slalom races in 1967, and had a total of 24 podium (top 3) finishes in slalom, giant slalom, and downhill in her career. She won the slalom World Cup title in 1967 (tied with Marielle Goitschel), while placing third in the race for the overall title. She retired from competition after the 1972 season.
