Biography

Konrad STAUDINGER

Conny Staudinger was primarily a skiier and tennis player, who grew up skiing on the Hahnenkamm above Kitzbühel, Austria. Although he raced on skis he was unable to make the Austrian national team in the era of Toni Sailer, Christian Pravda, and Anderl Molterer. So Staudinger competed for the Austrian national ice hockey team, playing for them at the 1956 Winter Olympics. His ice hockey career was relatively short, playing for Kitzbühel AC from 1952-57, although he competed at the 1957 World Championships in the A Division and the 1953 Worlds in B Division.

In 1958 Austrian native Sigi Engl invited Staudinger to become a ski director at Sun Valley, Idaho. During his time at Sun Valley he had his own suite at the Challenger Inn, and he was so highly thought of, that the suite was not used and was kept for him during the summers. He was there for 50 years, through 2008, although he returned to Kitzbühel every summer, where he taught tennis. In his youth, Staudinger won the Austrian title in doubles tennis six times. After his retirement from Sun Valley, Staudinger moved back to Kitzbühel permanently. His two boys, Konrad, Jr. and Christian (named after Christian Pravda), both became ski instructors in Austria, while his daughter, Veronica, became a lawyer in Innsbruck.
