WHO WE LOVE - vacancies

WHO WE ARE – das Edelweiss Team

Irmgard & Karl Wiener – Management, Hosts

Our main role in winter is, of course, that of hosts, and together with Ingo, the Flamingo, we take care of our employees' concerns.

Karl is the primary contact person for the entire F&B sector, which grows larger at Edelweiss each year. With his proven hands-on mentality, he appears wherever guests and staff appreciate an extra hand. He also coordinates all technical and structural matters, and when he needs a change, you can find him as the DJ (P)resident at Zürserl.

Irmgard takes care of the Rooms Division and paperwork - accounting, payroll, invoicing, contracts, agreements, purchasing & selling. And to ensure that creativity doesn't fall short, she also handles marketing.

We have been working together for 27 years now, more than 20 of which have been at Arlberg. Our paths crossed in Kühtai. Together, we have successfully filled many hotels, introduced unconventional ideas, and transformed them.

Back then, at Tannbergerhof, you had to queue to get into the disco, Warth and Steffisalp were still quite distant without ski connections, and the legendary Hotel Flexen in Zürs was even demolished after us 😉 So, we can claim that our experiences range from pre-opening to demolition.

Irmgard brings many years of experience as a consultant and trainer at the renowned tourism consultancy Kohl & Partner, and 6 years of self-employment in the gastronomy sector. Karl learned the hotel trade from scratch and gained international experience after successfully completing hotel management school, later experiencing corporate life as Head of Operations at Swarovski in Innsbruck.

Stefan Reichel – Head Chef

Stefan hails from the Carinthian Lavant Valley and has been the head chef at Edelweiss since December 2020. In summer, he manages the family business and is the managing director of the largest Carinthian folk festival, the "Gackern." The experienced master chef leads the Edelweiss kitchen in winter and, as an avid skier, takes every opportunity for a few turns, preferably in deep snow.
