He scored a total of 18 podium finishes out of 19 races in the two technical events. The only race in either slalom or giant slalom where he finished outside the top 3 was the giant slalom in Adelboden.
In 2015 Marcel dominated the giant slalom standings with 5 wins, including a winning margin of 3.28 seconds in Garmisch, and won the GS title for the second time. With his slalom win in Zagreb he became the most successful Austrian male World Cup slalom skier surpassing Benjamin Raich.
In the final race of the season in Meribel he overturned a 55-point deficit in the standings by winning his 16th World Cup slalom, and with it won the slalom title for the third year in a row. Hirscher became the first male alpine skier to win the overall World Cup title four times in a row.
On 13 November in Levi, Finland, Marcel won the first slalom of the 2017 season and equalled Pirmin Zurbriggen’s win total of 40, putting him equal 5th in the standings.

I was not aware at first what had happened because I was focusing on my race and the next gate but I got to the finish area where I learned how lucky I had been. I asked experts and they told me that a drone weighing 15 or 20 kilos falling from a height of 10 metres and hitting me on the head would have caused serious damage.”
