Explains and shows how under the leadership of Professor Kruckenhauser (1934 to 1973, except for during World War II, when he served as a photographer on the Eastern Fronts) Austria’s National Sports Home, the Bundessportheim on St. Christoph am Arlberg, became the world’s recognized center of  snow sports’, particularly alpine skiing, study, practice, and development. Whereas Hannes Schneider had widely been regarded as the God of Austrian skiing, Kruckenhauser came to be known as theSkipabst, the pope of Austrian skiing. In addition to administering the Bundessportheim for thirty plus years, he also: pioneered the use of photography and film to analyze skiing, created and then marketed his famous wedeln technique, established and maintained innumerable international contacts, many of whom requested  Austrian certified instructors, and started Interski, a international gathering, now held every four years, at which the latest ski technique and ski instruction methods are presented and discussed for and among ski instructor associations from throughout the world.  Professor Kruckenhauser’s legacy is told in part by Woerner Woerndle, Ski Austria Academy director and former Austrian Ski Team Coach.
