I saw that on my Red Bull app on my phone. At first I thought it was just a "stunt", but they really did it.
It looks like they had the ride height set all the way up for obvious reasons.

Does this count as illegal off season testing?

Looks like winter olympics Hahnenkamm ski run. My parents used to drag me to about every winter ski resort in Europe.

I thought it was done in Austria due to the whole Red Bull founder being from there. I could be wrong.

I wish my parents had hauled me all over Europe to ski. Luckily they liked to ski. They started in 1960 at Sun Valley and from there made sure me and my brother got lots of alpine time. Mostly out west and some in the UP of Michigan. When I was living in England we hit few ski resorts every winter, but nothing like what your cruel parents forced you to do.

Hahnenkamm (Roosters Comb) is the mountain right next to the town of Kitzbuehel in Austria's Tyrol region.
The downhill race fan waving the US flag enthusiastically is a pretty cool American ambassador.
