Doug Lewis skied the World Cup circuit from 1983 through 1987, earning one podium position in a major international, placing third in the downhill at the 1985 World Championships. Lewis was a speed skier, and had eight top 10s in downhill in World Cup races.

He later became involved in the ski industry at every level – as a broadcaster, television host, motivational speaker, product consultant, journalist, and coach. Lewis graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in business.

He serves as the Olympic Ambassador and Director of Recreational Racing at Sugerbush Resort in Vermont.

He is probably best known for his work on television, announcing ski meets for Universal HD, hosting RSN Outdoors on the Winter Resort Sports Network, and working for almost every major and cable network announcing ski races, and hosting numerous outdoor-related shows.
