Douglas Grey Lewis (born January 18, 1964) is a former World Cup alpine ski racer with the U.S. Ski Team in the mid-1980s. Born in Middlebury, Vermont, he was a two-time Olympian in 1984 and 1988.[1]

After competing in the 1984 Olympics at age 20, Lewis made his World Cup debut a month later in March 1984 with an 8th place finish at Whistler, BC. The following season, Lewis had two World Cup top ten finishes and was the bronze medalist in the downhill at the 1985 World Championships at Bormio, Italy.[2] His only World Cup podium came six months later, a second place finish in Las Leñas, Argentina in August 1985.

Lewis is currently an analyst for alpine ski racing with Universal Sports, and also runs a children's sports camp in Fayston, Vermont.[3]
