Roger Staub (1 July 1936 – 30 June 1974) was a Swiss alpine ski racer, best known for winning a gold medal in the giant slalom at the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley. Born in Arosa, Graubünden, Staub burst onto the Olympic scene, finishing fourth in the downhill event at the 1956 Olympics at only 19 years old.

His achievements also include success at the 1958 World Championships, where he won multiple medals. In addition to his international victories, Staub earned several Swiss national titles, indicating his prominence in national skiing circles.

After his competitive career, Staub transitioned to professional racing in the early 1960s. Later, he took on the role of ski school director at Vail resort in Colorado and also ran a ski school in Arosa.
