Josef "Pepi" Strobl (March 3, 1974, Holzgau) is a former alpine skier from Austria.

Career[edit]

During his career, he won three World Cup downhills (he got much attention after winning his first ever World Cup downhill with the start number 61), one giant slalom, two Super Gs and one parallel slalom. In the 1996/7 season he was the best placed Austrian in the World Cup overall.

From the season 2004/5 until the end of his career in 2006 he competed for Slovenia, as he faced problems with qualifying within the extremely strong Austrian skiing team.
