20 Hottest Winter Sports Babes

0 of 20

    It's winter time!

    Those three words have never sounded so sexy.

    It's safe to say the babes that come with winter sports are usually suited up from head to toe in not-so-sexy attire.

    Well, not these women of winter.

    While the Winter Olympics may be another three years away, there is still plenty of fun to be had off the slopes and in front of the camera. 

    With that in mind, I've decided to dive in and take a look at the 20 Hottest Winter Sports Babes.

    From skiing to figure skating and snowboarding to curling, these ladies know how to keep warm no matter how cold it is.

20. Noelle Pikus-Pace

1 of 20

    Sport: Skeleton

    U.S. skeleton racer Noelle Pikus-Pace has had much success on the ice, but it's her good looks that have landed her a spot on this list.

19. Lindsey Vonn

2 of 20

    Sport: Skiing

    Vonn has won three consecutive overall World Cup and downhill championships, but what should you take from this slide?

    She's recently divorced. 

    While my heart goes out to her in this tough time, my number can also go out to her if she wants it. Let me know, Lindsey.

18. Lacy Schnoor

3 of 20

    Sport: Skiing

    Lacy Schnoor hasn't had great success as a skier yet in her young career, but at only 26 there's plenty of time for that.

    I'm more concerned with why I had never heard of her until now.


17. Aliona Savchenko

4 of 20

    Sport: Figure Skating

    Pair skater Aliona Savchenko is a three-time defending World Champion and bronze medalist at the 2010 Olympic games.

    Judging by the picture, is there any reason she shouldn't be on this list?

16. Therese Johaug

5 of 20

    Sport: Cross Country Skiing

    Ever heard of her?

    Neither had I, but she was a gold medalist at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

    Only 23, Johaug has caught my eye. I have to admit—blond hair and blue eyes is my weakness.

    Well done, Therese.

15. Magdalena Neuner

6 of 20

    Sport: Biathlon

    At the age of 24, Neuner is one of the youngest athletes on the list, as well as one of the most successful. 

    As of March 2011, Neuner had won 24 World Cup races and achieved 45 podium finishes, ranking her third all-time in Biathlon World Cup victories.

14. Maria Riesch

7 of 20

    Sport: Alpine Skiing

    Maria Riesch won gold medals in slalom and super combined at the 2010 Winter Olympics and won the World Cup overall title in 2011.

    She is also a nationally ranked tennis player and cyclist. 

    Did I mention she's smokin' hot?

13. Melissa Hollingsworth

8 of 20

    Sport: Skeleton

    Hollingsworth is an Olympic bronze medalist and has also won several medals at World Championship events.

    Skeleton racing has found a way to make fully-clothed women look sexy, am I right?

12. Hannah Teter

9 of 20

    Sport: Snowboarding

    Hannah Teter is one of four sexy snowboarders featured in this list who also posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

    I think I'm going to start heading to the slopes to pick up chicks from now on. It seems to be the hot spot for hot women.

11. Sasha Cohen

10 of 20

    Sport: Figure Skating

    It seems as though Sasha Cohen has been around forever. At only 26, Sasha can stick around as long as she wants if she keeps posing like this.

    Can we get Cohen and Tanith Belbin to team up?

    I'd pay to watch that.

10. Sarah Burke

11 of 20

    Sport: Freestyle Skiing

    A four-time X Games gold medalist, Burke stays active by knitting, cooking, mountain biking, going to the gym and painting.

    She was voted to FHM-U.S.'s 100 Sexiest Women 2006, where she ranked 90th. She kicks off the top 10 on this list, though.

9. Clair Bidez

12 of 20

    Sport: Snowboarding

    This sexy half pipe specialist from Colorado posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in 2010. 

    A snowboarder posing for a swimsuit magazine?

    I'm not complaining.

8. Gretchen Bleiler

13 of 20

    Sport: Snowboarding

    I'm giving Bleiler the title of, "Coolest Hottie on the List" for no reason other than the fact she seems like the most down-to-Earth chick out there.

    Bleiler recently posed for ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue and has become a sex symbol for the sport of snowboarding.

7. Allison Baver

14 of 20

    Sport: Speed Skating

    Allison Baver was a bronze medalist at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. She was the 2007 U.S. Short Track National Champion and is a graduate of Penn State University.

    Can we make it a rule that all speed skating uniforms must look like this?

6. Kiira Korpi

15 of 20

    Sport: Figure Skating

    Gentlemen, there are rare occasions when it's okay to watch figure skating. One of those times is when Kiira Korpi is on the ice.

    Korpi may not definitively be the hottest figure skater on the list, but she's certainly making a strong case for herself. 

5. Julia Mancuso

16 of 20

    Sport: Skiing

    A gold medalist at the 2006 Winter Olympics, Mancuso not only dominates her sport but also most of the women on this list.

    Easy guys, not what I meant. 

    Her combination of beauty and athleticism has catapulted her all the way up to No. 5 on the list.

4. Claudia Toth

17 of 20

    Sport: Curling

    Yes, curling.

    Toth was offered to appear in Playboy Magazine, but unfortunately for us she turned those offers down. Luckily, we are blessed to have this picture of her.

    Curling, you now have my attention.

3. Tanith Belbin

18 of 20

    Sport: Figure Skating

    Belbin may have been born and raised in Canada, but thanks to dual citizenship, Americans get the privilege of watching her dance around in tights on ice. 

    Thanks to me, everyone gets the privilege of seeing her pose half naked.

    Guys, it's okay to watch figure skating so long as Belbin is performing, too.

2. Kristi Leskinen

19 of 20

    Sport: Freestyle Skiing

    Yes, she is an athlete. Yes, she is American. Yes, she is crazy hot.

    Do you really need to know anything other than that?

    Just in case you'd like to know more, Leskinen also had talents on the water. She had the choice to become a pro wake boarder but chose skiing instead.

    Too bad we aren't watching her soaking wet and in a bikini, am I right?

    This will do.

1. Anni Friesinger

20 of 20

    Sport: Speed Skating

    Can you see where she gets the nickname, "Super Sexy Anni?"

    If not, visit your local eye doctor immediately.

    Anni Friesinger set the Olympic record in the 1500m in 2002, which currently still stands.

    She also tops my list of the 20 Hottest Winter Sports Babes.
