The defending world champion was Peter Müller of Switzerland, while Switzerland's Pirmin Zurbriggen was the defending World Cup downhill champion and led the 1988 World Cup.
The race was postponed a day due to winds that gusted to 98 mph (158 km/h) at the summit; Zurbriggen took the gold and Müller the silver.
