Hartmann "Harti" Weirather (born January 25, 1958) is a former World Cup alpine ski racer from Austria. Born in Reutte, Tyrol, he specialized in the downhill event.
During the early 1980s, Weirather won six World Cup downhill races and won the downhill at the 1982 World Championships in Schladming, Austria. In addition, he won the World Cup season title in downhill in 1981.
Weirather's win at Kitzbühel in 1982 was the first-ever under two minutes on the full-length Streif course; his time (1:57.20) stood as the course record for ten years. (The two downhill races at Kitzbühel in 1982 were extremely fast compared to previous years; Weirather broke Franz Klammer's 1975 record (2:03.22) by over six seconds, and the top 15 finishers in both races were all under two minutes.)
Weirather is married to former World Cup champion Hanni Wenzel of Liechtenstein, one of the top alpine ski racers in history. They run a business consultancy firm in Planken, Liechtenstein, and their daughter, Tina Weirather, is a former world junior champion and competes on the World Cup circuit for Liechtenstein.
