Hans Vinjarengen (August 20, 1905 – February 1, 1984) was a Norwegian skier who competed in nordic combined in the 1920s and early 1930s. He won a Nordic combined silver at the 1928 Winter Olympics in St. Moritz and a Nordic combined bronze at the 1932 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York.

In addition, he won Nordic combined gold medals at the 1929 and 1930 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships and bronzes at the same event in 1934 and 1938.

Vinjarengen won the Holmenkollen ski festival's Nordic combined event twice (1930 and 1932). In 1931, he shared the Holmenkollen medal with fellow Norwegian Ole Stensen, a cross-country skier.
