Marlies Schild (born 31 May 1981 in Admont) is an Austrian Alpine skier. She is a specialist in the technical disciplines of giant slalom and slalom and has won multiple medals in Olympic and World Championship competitions, as well as three season discipline championships in the World Cup.

At the beginning of her career, her preference was for the downhill. However, by the age of 19 she had already undergone 5 knee surgeries, prompting her to concentrate instead on the less dangerous slalom and giant slalom competitions. At the Alpine World Ski Championships 2003 in St. Moritz she placed second in the slalom behind Janica Kostelić, and at the same competition in 2005 she won a bronze medal in the combination, behind Janica Kostelić and Anja Pärson.

She has participated in the Alpine skiing World Cup four times, and won the silver medal at the 2003 World Cup.
