Carole Montillet from France was defending Olympic champion, but she was 19th in the 2005–06 World Cup downhill standings, headed by Michaela Dorfmeister from Austria. The Croat Janica Kostelić was defending World Champion, but she was fourth in the overall World Cup standings, though she did win one World Cup race at Bad Kleinkirchheim in January.[1]
