Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person
Marcel Hirscher’s preparations for the upcoming season were hindered Thursday after the six-time overall World Cup champion broke his left ankle in practice during his first day back on skis.

The 28-year-old Austrian will be in a cast for six weeks, and there was no immediate prognosis when he will be able to ski again. The new season, which includes the Olympics, starts Oct. 29 with a giant slalom in Soelden, Austria.

Hirscher straddled a gate at the Moelltaler glacier at the end of a slalom run. He was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Salzburg but the Austrian ski federation said he does not need surgery.

The Austrians reckon he'll be OK for the Olympics, so can't be all that bad.

Dunno about that, ankle injury is a killer esp with all the tendons if they get messed up.
Fingers crossed he makes it

It always amazes me how quickly pro athletes recover from injuries. With no complications he'll be back and racing by Levi. Could easily be longer if there are problems though.

Yeah he'll get top quality care and physio, plus will be able to concentrate 100% on it so has a better chance than most. Plus he's Marcel Hirscher, so is a little bit superhuman anyway.

Suspect it might be a good thing in an Olympic year - bit of an enforced layoff will mean he's fresher by the time the games roll aaround (if indeed they do with threat of N Korean missiles aimed at them)

Hirscher was back on the snow but he's still experiencing problems and a lot of pain so he doesn't expect an early season start or to pick up the overall trophy at the end of the season either.

Good for him. Good to know he's a skier at heart and probably not bad if he wants to work on a showreel for a bit of post racing ski-porn a la Rahlves etc. Can't imagine Schiffrin blowing off for a couple of weeks heli - would interfere with "the programme" too much

@Dave of the Marmottes, yeah, it's good to see Aksel doing big mountain skiing in the Field Productions films (Being There, Supervention etc.). He clearly loves it but his style still has something of the racer about it, even on pow-covered Alaskan spines

@SnoodlesMcFlude,

Yes the racers don't quite have the same powder finesse of the pro offpiste riders.

@DB, most of those big mountain skiers started out as racers - McConkey, Auclair, Seth Morrison, Ingrid Backstrom etc

On a side note I’d love to see Mancuso do some more freeride comps if she ever gets her hip issues sorted

@moseyp,
Ski racers who 'lost' their way wink
Knew McConkey was a mogul Skier but didn't know he was a ski racer beforehand.

+1 on Mancuso, I also wish she would do more hot tubs with Chemmy Alcott. Toofy Grin

@DB, McConkey was Bourke Mountain academy but he got dropped from the US team and ended up in moguls. Mancuso had her first hip replacement recently so will be interesting to see what she does when she’s back to health
