Bryce Bennett (born July 14, 1992) is an American alpine ski racer.[1]

He joined the U.S. Ski Team in 2011 after a spring tryout camp and, though he missed out on the 2014 Olympic team, he saw his breakout season come in 2015. In December of that year, Bennett went from the 57th starting position to cross the finish line in sixth at a downhill world cup in Val Gardena, Italy. It remains his highest world cup finish. His top-10 finish earned him a spot on the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team.
