Hannes Trinkl (born 1 February 1968 in Steyr) is an Austrian former alpine skier. Trinkl retired from competition in 2004. He subsequently served as race director for Alpine Skiing World Cup competitions in his hometown of Hinterstoder and vice president of the Austrian Ski Federation before being appointed as race director for men's speed events on the World Cup from the 2014-15 season.:[1] As a race director of the FIS he also is the course setter for male downhill races in the World Cup, in the World Championships and in the Olympic Winter Games. In the Super-G he will support the course setter who is one of any other nation (but such a course setter is to determine by the FIS early enough; that will happen in regard to all matters of course settings, therefore also for slaloms and giant slaloms, male or female).

Winning the bronze in downhill in the 1998 Winter Olympics, he did it with the small difference of 0.01 sec. ahead to the fourth-placed Jürg Grünenfelder. His first victory in a World Cup Race, the Super-G at Lech, he did it with the bib number 51, the highest number to win a male Super-G until now.
