Armin Höfl, born August 11, 1989, comes from the municipality of Krakau, Styria, in the heart of Austria. It was only very late, at the age of 22, that his love of mountain sports emerged, and he has been a member of the Austrian national ski mountaineering team since the 2015/16 season. The mountains, nature, the beautiful summit views, the amazing powder descents – these are the sources from which Armin draws inner strength for all his efforts and daily training. He is driven and motivated by the desire to push beyond his own performance limits and beat his own records. After an extremely successful 2016/17 season and consistently improving form, with several top-10 placings in international races, Armin’s goal for next winter is to reach the top of the world ski mountaineering rankings.
