Greta Small (born 16 October 1995) is an Australian alpine skier. She first started skiing at Mt Hotham with MHRS. Her main training base now is in the Tirol region in Austria where she trains with Race Centre Benni Raich. Her first major international appearance was at the Innsbruck 2012 Youth Olympic Games. In Small's first senior World championships she placed 25th in the Super Combined at 17 years of age. The 2013–14 Northern Hemisphere winter was a first of many things for Small. She competed at the Solden opening World Cup Giant Slalom followed by three World Cup events in Beaver Creek, Colorado, and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Small placed 15th in the Alpine Combined which was Australia's best placing for 12 years and she was the second-youngest in the field by 8 days.[2]

At the end of the 2015 season whilst racing in Japan, Small tore her ACL. She is set to come back for the 2016–2017 season.
