Sandrine Aubert (born October 6, 1982 in Échirolles, Isère) is a retired French alpine skier and a slalom specialist. After she was not selected for the French squad for the 2014 Winter Olympics, she announced her retirement from competition in February 2014.[1][2]

Aubert won her first World Cup race in women's slalom in Ofterschwang, Germany on March 7, 2009.[3] The following week she won a consecutive second World Cup slalom race in Åre, Sweden.[4]

2010 Season[edit]

Aubert won again in Åre the third World Cup slalom race of the season.[5] She won her second World Cup race of the season in Zagreb and for the first time moved at the top of the slalom standings.[6] She finished 5th in the slalom event of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, achieving the best result in alpine skiing at these games for an otherwise disappointing French team.
