He had five victories on the FIS World Cup circuit.[1] These were the giant slalom at Garmisch-Partenkirchen,[2] the slalom at Furano,[3] and the giant slalom at Voss,[4] all in 1977, and the slalom events at Wengen[5] and Kitzbühel,[6] both in 1978.[1] Heidegger finished second overall in the 1977 World Cup standings, behind Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden.[7]

Following his skiing career, Heidegger has served as co-president of the American cosmetic company Kiehl's, which was sold to L'Oreal for an estimated price of $100 million to $150 million in 2000.[8][9]
