Sigrid Wolf (born 14 February 1964) is an Austrian former Alpine skier.

She came in the spotlight when she placed fourth in the downhill in Santa Caterina in 1985. Sigrid Wolf won the Super-G gold medal at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary ahead of Michela Figini and Karen Percy. This was the first time it was ever arranged a Super-G competition at the Olympic games. One year later she won a silver medal in the same discipline at the World Championships in Vail, Colorado.[1]

Wolf was chosen as Austrian Sportswoman of the Year in 1987 and 1988, and in 1996 was awarded a gold medal for services to the Austrian Republic. She retired in December 1990 due to a knee injury.[1]
