Biography

Hanspeter LANIG

Hans-Peter and Evi Lanig were siblings. After the marriage of his sister, he also became brother-in-law to the bobsleigh pilot Lorenz Nieberl. Another brother Axel also became a national successful alpine skier and his son Peter was a freestyler. Hans Peter was head coach of the Alpine National Team of West Germany from 1962-66.

In 1956 at Cortina d’Ampezzo Lanig finished fifth in the downhill although he had a fall on the track and placed seventh in the giant slalom. Four years later he won a silver medal in the downhill, also finishing seventh in the slalom, but he was a disappointing 13th in the giant slalom. Nevertheless he was awarded the Silver Bay Leaf (Silbernes Lorbeerblatt) the same year. Domestically he won seven titles.

Between 1960 and 1962 he worked in hotels in the US, while a few years later he took over the café of his parents at Oberjoch and enlarged it to a sports hotel. He also took over the skiing school at Oberjoch.
