It was a surreal experience – simply amazing!
– Marcel Hirscher
When a specifically designed and extremely steep race course meets a four-time overall World Champion, action is what you get – or in the case of Austrian Marcel Hirscher, colour. Hirscher skied down the course through poles filled with coloured powder paint, and the result was stunning, as you can see below.
"It was a surreal experience – simply amazing! I couldn't ski with the speed I normally do in races, even though the course was very steep in the first part, up to 75 percent incline," he explains. "At each gate I was blinded for a split second because I had to ski through a cloud of yellow and blue."
And why this project? "We wanted to bring a new, cool element into skiing," he smiles, "and create unforgettable images. And I think we succeeded!"
