Anne Heggtveit first stepped into a pair of skis at the age of 2 and won her first race at the age of 7 when she won the Ladies Senior Slalom and Combined events at Wakefield, Quebec on 6 January 1947. In the same year and in 1948 and '49, she acted as a forerunner for the Ladies' International Downhill and Slalom events at Lake Placid, New York State. Short one of ten people required for the Canadian National team, she was invited to join the team at the age of 9, an extraordinary experience for one so young.
