Fabienne Suter (born 5 January 1985) is a World Cup alpine ski racer from Switzerland. Born in Sattel in the canton of Schwyz, she specializes in super-G, giant slalom, and downhill.

Career[edit]

At the 2003 World Championships in St. Moritz, she fell in the giant slalom and injured her pelvis. Continuning and recovering, Suter resided in Calgary, Canada, with close family friends. This was followed by other injuries. Following appearances in FIS and Europa Cup races, she returned to the World Cup in for the 2007 season.[1] She won a bronze medal as part of the team at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in 2007 with Sandra Gini, Nadia Styger, Rabea Grand, Daniel Albrecht and Marc Berthod.

Her first performance in the top ten was in February 2008, a seventh place in downhill in St. Moritz. The next week she won her first World Cup race at the super-G in Sestriere, tied with Andrea Fischbacher. At the World Cup finals in Bormio, she won another super-G race on 13 March.

In the 2007 World Championships in Åre, Sweden, Suter came in 11th in the super-G and 13th in the giant slalom, having had to start with a higher number. With the Swiss team she won the bronze medal in the team event, having contributed the second-fastest time in the super-G run.
