Austrian Hansi Hinterseer is currently one of the biggest stars on the Schlager music scene.
Son of Austrian national hero, Ernst Hinterseer, who won the 1960 Olympic gold medal in slalom skiing, Hansi was a formidable skiier in his own right, winning 6 International World Cup skiing competitions in the 1970s (including the event at Anchorage, Alaska.)
He is a major television personality in Germany and Austria and regularly sells out concerts throughout the region.
Here is his 2008 hit, "The Ski Twist" (Somehow I doubt that you will ever see Chubby Checker imitating Hansi's moves on the slopes.)
