Martin Kroisleitner is in his third season as the Lobos' head Alpine coach.

In his second season, Kroisleitner led the UNM Alpine squad to one of its strongest perfornaces and five All-America honors. The Alpine squad finished No. 1 overall at the 2009 NCAA championships in Maine and in the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association regular season Alpine standings. For his efforts, Kroisleitner was named the 2009 RMISA Alpine Coach of the Year.

The Lobo Alpine squad was a key component of UNM's 2009 NCAA West Region/RMISA conference championship and third-place finish at the NCAA championships. Lobos took three individual titles at the West Region/RMISA championships - Estelle Pecherand-Charmet (women's slalom), Petter Brenna (men's slalom and giant slalom) - and five All-America honors, including Malin Hemmingsson's second national women's slalom title in three seasons.

In his first season as overseer of the University of New Mexico Alpine ski squad, Martin Kroisleitner led his team to three All-American finishes and six top-20 finishes at the 2008 NCAA Championships in Bozeman, Mont. Newcomer Thomas Schwab finished seventh in the slalom, while Malin Hemmingsson (giant slalom) and Karin Ohlin (slalom) picked up repeat All-America performances.

Kroisleitner was promoted to head coach of the Alpine squad in 2007-08, just his second season on the staff at the University of New Mexico. Kroisleitner spent his first season with the Lobo ski team as an assistant Alpine coach, under the tutelage of retired head coach George Brooks.

Kroisleitner came to UNM after seven seasons as a coach at the Erich Sailer Ski Racing Camps in Mt. Hood, Ore. He also made five starts on the World Cup circuit and had four FIS wins in 2006.

Kroisleitner was a member of the Sierra Nevada College ski team, winning both the United States Collegiate Ski Association (USCSA) giant slalom and slalom nation titles as a senior in 2003. He also won a silver and two gold medals at the World University Games. For his career, he has seven World Cup starts and won eight USCSA titles at Sierra Nevada College. His first World Cup start was January 16, 2005 at Wengen, Switzerland.

Kroisleitner completed his master's degree in Sport Administration at UNM in 2007.
