  • Non-compliance will result in a DAILY FEE of €10,00!


PLEASE NOTE THE RULES:

  • Always keep to the edge of the piste!
  • Always stay one behind the other (not alongside one other)!
  • Only use marked ascent routes!
  • Avoid crossing the pistes!
  • Ski down the edge of the piste (after lift operating hours)!
  • Wear high visibility clothing (reflectors) and a head torch!


PISTE PREPARATION AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR ACTIONS:

  • The daily grooming of ski pistes takes a lot of time and also costs a lot of money. Therefore, it’s unfair for paying ski guests if they wake up to a rutted piste, cased by wide carving turns.
  • Incidentally, this is also very dangerous for skiers in the morning!
  • As a ski tourer, you ski down a freshly groomed piste. The gouges you leave in the snow then freeze over night... 

 
WARNING – RISK OF DEATH

  • Please note that piste bashers – sometimes with cable winches – are in operation in the ski area after lift operating hours. Don’t ski down unprotected in the dark! Don’t cross any pistes!
  • Wear reflective clothing and a head torch! For your protection – especially at dusk and at night!
  • Please note the time of the last inspection run made by the piste service. Times are provided at lift stations.
  •  Avalanche danger – check information in advance! Please observe the avalanche warnings (flashing light) on the panorama boards at the bottom and middle lift stations.
  • Research the current (local) snow composition and avalanche report before your tour.
  • Stay on the marked and authorised pistes!


ALPINE EMERGENCY mountain rescue
You can contact the mountain rescue services in Tyrol on telephone number "140". In addition you can ask for help at any occupied lift station.
