Kitzbühel In The Summer

Dropped in on my bro's at the KSC the other day on my way back from the Czech Republic. As great as Kitzbühel is in the winter, it's ten times as great in the summer.

One of the most amazing things I found is that the KSC froze the steep parts of the course so hard for the race that there's still almost two meters of snow left on some of the steeper sections, like the exit of the Steilhang and at the bottom of the Mausefalle.

You can still see my neon green tape (with notes to Andy & Brian) on the wiring box at the Alte Schneisse.

Petra is going to scout an area for a FIS-piss tree in Kitzbühel

This is the exit to the Steilhang, where Bode skied up onto the Vexar during the 2008 DH to keep from dying. Still almost two meters of snow there.

You could still ski down the Steilhang, no problem, on May 25.

The KSC Mountain Goat stands watch proudly over the golf course. The Hausebergkante and the Zielschuss have a high "pucker factor" even in the summer.

Yours truly at the Alte Schneisse breakover.

The top of the Kitzbühelerhorn seems to have more snow on it in late May than it did during the race.
