Jean-Baptiste Grange (born 10 October 1984) is a French World Cup alpine ski racer. He primarily competes in the technical events and specializes in the slalom.

Born in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, Savoie, Grange grew up in Valloire, Galibier, and made his World Cup debut at age 19 in January 2004. On 17 February 2007, he won the bronze medal in the slalom at the 2007 World Championships in Åre, Sweden. He won his first World Cup race on 17 December 2007, and won the 2009 season title in the slalom. Injured in early December 2009 in a giant slalom at Beaver Creek, he opted for surgery and missed the remainder of the 2010 season, which included the 2010 Winter Olympics.[1] He returned to competition for the 2011 season and won the world championship in the slalom.[2] He won his second slalom world title in Beaver Creek, february 15th 2015.
