Can you identify this racer?

We're cleaning out our condo to get it ready to put on the market.  My wife dug out some pictures she took a long time ago.  She said was in Purgatory and was likely taken the winter of '80-81.  I' curious if anyone has an idea who the skier is?

I am probably wrong--it's a pretty small picture--but my first instinct was that it is Jarle Halsnes, who with his younger brother Edvin dominated the pro racing scene for a while in the 1980's. Could be Jarle, but I am not the least confident in that.

 

Best regards,

Bob

Could very well be.  Similar expression and hairline.

 

Phil Mahre said he doesn't know but thinks it could be Richie Woodworth.
