Austrian Speed Skiing Champion – Franz Weber

An Olympian, six-time consecutive World Speed Skiing Champion – Franz Weber is also a former world record-holder and still holds the North American record, at 129.303 mph/208.092 kph which he set in 1983 in Silverton, Colorado. He dominated the sport of speed skiing from 1980 to 1985, winning over eighty percent of the races he entered. He retired as World Champion in 1985 but returned to the sport of speed skiing seven years later to compete in the 1992 Winter Olympics at Albertville, France where he clocked his fastest personal time of 138.112 mph/222.222 kph (average speed). Feeling he had achieved his speed skiing goals, Franz permanently retired from the sport following the 1992 Olympics.

These days Franz spends part of the year taking guests skiing around the world and giving them an insider’s view to a world few get a chance to experience. Door open when Franz Weber and business partner Franz Klammer are in town.
