Egon Zimmermann

> It is with a heavy heart that we bring the news of the passing of our long­time friend and business partner Egon Zimmer­mann. Egon was born in Kirchbichl, Austria. He was a longtime mem­ber of the Aus­trian ski team and represented his country in the 1960 Olympic Games in Squaw Valley, CA. He is amongst the most decorated ski rac­ers, both as an amateur and on the professional ski racing circuit. He was also a very influential fig­ure in the growth of ski­ing and ski racing here in the U.S. We have set up a display in the store full of memorabilia of the his­tory of skiing. Among the items are several from Egon’s racing days. Items like the downhill skis used in the Olym­pic Games, his No. 1 Olympic start­ing bib and some of his many med­als and trophies. Stop by and see them if you are in the area and maybe his spirit will touch you like it has for us and all who knew him. RIP Egon, The Hausberg­er family.
