Marco Büchel (born November 4, 1971, in Walenstadt, Switzerland) is a retired alpine ski racer from Liechtenstein. He participated in a record-tying six Winter Olympics, starting in 1992 and ending in 2010.

On 18 January 2008, Büchel won a World Cup Super-G race at Kitzbühel, and set a new record as the oldest winner of a World Cup race at the age of 36 years and 3 months[1] .

Büchel is featured in the OL-floka music video for the 1994 Winter Olympics. He's seen climbing upwards the combined slalom course, after missing a gate. [1]

Büchel retired following the Super-G race at Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany) on 11 March 2010. He celebrated his last race by racing not in the regular catsuit but by wearing a tuxedo with black Bermuda shorts. As he skied down the course, Büchel slowed down many times to "high-five" various trainers.[2]
