Professional: He started actively competing in cross-country ski championships when he was 7 years old, and later, after moving to New York, with the Scandinavian Ski Club of New York. He also played professional soccer for a spell. He came to UNM in 1976 as the cross-country ski coach. Weber estimates that he coached 2,500 games between high school, club and college. He also played in about 1,000 games. He competed in his last over-40 game at the age of 66
For 40 years, Weber has been ingrained in this city’s soccer community. He once coached the University of New Mexico soccer team. He also used to coach the Lobo ski team. Think about that; how many people do you know who could pull off that double coaching duties. He spent 27 years at UNM (coaching and teaching), with a couple of those soccer seasons overlapping with skiing. After leaving the Lobos, it wasn’t long before he resurfaced at a tiny private school on the West Side. Bosque has been a small-school powerhouse since Weber arrived.
Klaus has been a leader in the Nordic ski scene in New Mexico for over 40 years and continues to be actively involved with outdoor sports in New Mexico.
