How did Picabo Street Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on April 3, 1971, in Idaho, Picabo Street was raised in her parents’ farm in Triumph, a few miles away from Sun Valley, where she learned to ski as a young girl. As a student, she went to Rowland Hall-St. Mark’s School in Salt Lake City; for a period, she also attended the school’s Rowmark Ski Academy. Prior to joining the academy, she skied for the local Hailey Ski team.
Highly talented, she eventually made it onto the U.S. Ski Team at the age of seventeen. In 1992, she made her World Cup debut, where she competed in the super G and downhill events. A couple of months later, she participated in the World Championships in Japan, where she finished second place in the combined event.
In 1994, she was selected to represent the United States at the 1994 Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer. In the end, she took home a silver medal in the downhill. Not long after she won, a run in Sun Valley was named after her on Bald Mountain.
On a roll, she later became the first American woman to win gold in a speed event at the World Cup in 1995. From there, she won her first world champion title at the 1996 World Championships in Spain.
Due to a knee injury that she sustained during training, she sat out most of the 1997 season. Following her recovery, however, she made a comeback at the 1998 Winter Olympics where she won a gold medal in the super G. Despite the win, however, she was later forced to undergo two years of rehabilitation after snapping her left femur during a race in 1998. In 2002, she announced her retirement from competition.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to say how much exactly she had made from her skiing career (though she did receive a few endorsement offers following her win at the 1998 Olympics). Aside from the sport, she has been involved with other projects; for instance, she has made a few television appearances in the shows Pyramid, GUTS, and American Gladiators. In 2001, she also released an autobiography titled, Picabo: Nothing to Hide.
