Preparations for the Hahnenkamm Race begin as early as autumn - but what actually happens to the world-famous downhill race in summer? You can find out about this and much more here.
Summer on the Streif
In summer, the lush alpine meadows above the Streif largely belong to the cows. The farmers fertilize in spring, mow the hay and are also busy with enough work in the surrounding forest. When the cows are back in the valley, the Kitzbühel Ski Club begins preparations for the most important ski race of the year. The Streif is made fit for "the" ski race of the year.
