Ski legends explain the phenomenon

«That makes Odermatt almost invincible!»

Also this season Marco Odermatt (25) is the measure of all things in the giant slalom. In Adelboden, the Nidwaldner wants to claim his fourth win in the fifth race, explaining former winners of the “Chuenisbärgli” what makes him so strong.

Marco Odermatt dominated the first half of this giant slalom season with every trick in the book. The 25-year-old won three out of four World Cup giants (Sölden, Val-d’Isère and Alta Badia). What sets the Nidwaldner apart from the rest of the ski world? Three former Adelboden winners provide the answer.

«Marco Odermatt is often compared to my outstanding compatriots Marcel Hirscher or Hermann Maier. But this sensationally triumphant Swiss stands out from its competitors with a completely different quality than the two Austrians did in previous years. Maier and Hirscher scored above all with their incredibly powerful driving style. Sure, Marco also has a lot of power. But what sets him even more apart on the skis is his unique instinct. He masters a lot of tricky racing situations with his ingenious feeling. And that’s why it can’t be copied by anyone, because instinct, unlike muscles, you can’t train. This gift is either given at birth or never at all. And that’s exactly why Marco Odermatt will be hard to beat in the years to come.”
