What does a ski racer do in summer?

He likes to go hiking, preferably in his home town of Annaberg-Lungötz. There, on the Stuhlalm, Marcel Hirscher spent his childhood. It's a place he's drawn to over and over again.

A very special experience for him was the climbing tour to the Bischofsmütze in summer 2017. With an experienced guide Marcel Hirscher conquered the probably most striking summit of the Gosaukamm.
