Andreas Steindl has been skiing since childhood: at the age of 3 he started skiing, at the age of 5 he started climbing, at the age of 9 he participated in his first ski race, and at the age of 14 he participated in his first touring race. At the age of 15, he started his ice-climbing career, which made him one of the top 10 a year later. His successes at the World Cup are legendary.
After training as a mountain guide and ski instructor, he concentrated on ski touring. And in this discipline, too, he was soon one of the stars of the Swiss Team.
