Pick your adjective: legendary, extreme, iconic, terrifying. All of these and more have been used to describe the Hahnenkamm downhill in Kitzbuehel, Austria. Make it down in one piece, and you’ve joined an elite brotherhood of World Cup speedsters; win it, and have your name forever etched in the record books of ski racing lore.
In episode two of American Downhiller, presented by POC, we take an intimate look at just what it takes to throw yourself down the Mausefalle, Steilhang, and Hausbergkante, and what it means to be an American at this storied venue of venues.
