On Wednesday morning, six-time World Cup overall winner Marcel Hirscher skied for the first time since his ankle fracture on Aug. 17. After a few free runs, Hirscher said it was “quite nice.”

His return to snow is earlier than expected. Just two weeks ago, Hirscher had indicated he would not return to snow before the end of October.

While he is ahead of schedule, Hirscher has already said he will skip the World Cup in Soelden later this month. The Austrian indicated he could return in Levi, but he has not made any definitive decisions about when his season will start.

This was a really nice try. #89 #weareskiing #verleihtfl├╝gel #IWILL #championstrainwithtechnogym #startenstattwarten
