Resi Stiegler (/rˈz/[1] (born November 14, 1985) is a World Cup alpine ski racer from the United States. She primarily races in the technical events and specializes in slalom.

Born and raised in Jackson, Wyoming, Stiegler is the daughter of Olympic champion Josef "Pepi" Stiegler of Austria. She began skiing at age two and racing at six at Jackson Hole. Junior Olympic and Nor-Am success while still a teenager led to a berth on the U.S. Ski Team; she made her World Cup debut in December 2002 at a slalom in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, where she finished a remarkable 11th. At the 2003 Junior World Championships in France, she won bronze medals in slalom and combined, to which she added a 10th-place finish in combined at the "grown-up" World Championships that year in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

Through early March 2014, Stiegler has 18 World Cup top-ten finishes, with one podium. Stiegler finished sixth in combined at the 2005 World Championships in Santa Caterina Valfurva, Italy. She made her Olympic debut at the 2006 Torino games, placing 11th in the combined and 12th in the slalom.

Stiegler's trademark is the tiger ears she usually wears atop her helmet. She won a well-publicized battle with the International Olympic Committee, allowing her to compete with the ears at the Torino Olympics.

After a series of injuries, Stiegler made her first World Cup podium in March 2012, a runner-up finish at a slalom in Ofterschwang, Germany.[2][3] It was her first top ten finish in over four years. In a November, 2012 interview, Stiegler had recovered on schedule and was set to compete in the 2012–2013 season as planned.
