Niels Hintermann laughs about a podium finish in Kitzbühel.


Niels Hintermann has a particularly rare gift. When the light on the slopes is poor, the man from Zurich drives particularly fast. “This is very likely due to the fact that when I was a child, I used to go on the slopes with my brother Sven, even in the worst conditions.” The conditions weren’t that bad when Hintermann started with the number 9 on his Friday “ramble”. But ground visibility was severely limited.

In comparable conditions, the 27-year-old finished third in the second descent in Kvitfjell last winter. The “downhill wild boar” from Bülach also finished third in Kitzbühel. And this placement even puts Hintermann above his only World Cup downhill victory so far on the first Kvitfjell downhill run in 2022. “There is no other downhill run in the World Cup circus that has the myth of Kitzbühel. In no other place have so many beautiful but also sad ski stories been written. And that’s why this result is particularly valuable for me.”
