Safety informationThe piste and rescue service monitors and controls only the marked and open pistes and freeride routes. Outside the railroad operating hours, the slopes and freeride routes are closed and not protected from any hazards such as avalanche blasting or piste machines with winches!
Outside of the slopes or when they are closed, you are as a tour skier in the free ski area and have to take appropriate precautions. This includes the assessment of alpine dangers, reading and applying the avalanche situation report, having avalanche equipment with you and being able to use it. After all, avalanches can sometimes occur even in a closed ski area.
