Steven Irving Mahre (born May 10, 1957 in Yakima, Washington) is a former World Cup alpine ski racer and younger twin brother (by four minutes) of ski racer Phil Mahre. Mahre won the silver medal in slalom at the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, 0.21 seconds behind his more celebrated brother. He won the gold medal in giant slalom at the 1982 World Championships in Schladming, Austria. His best finish in the overall standings was third in 1982 and fourth in 1981 (brother Phil was the overall World Cup champion in 1981, 1982, and 1983). After nine seasons, the Mahre twins retired from the World Cup circuit following the 1984 season. Steve finished his career with 9 World Cup victories and 21 podiums. The book No Hill Too Fast, written by the Mahre brothers, was published in 1985.
