Respect your limits

Snow sports with consideration

Respect your limits - snow sports with consideration

Snow crunches under the weight of its own footstep, sparkles in the white landscape, thrusts through the air. Far away are hustle and bustle, very close to the elements of nature. With a bit of luck, the silhouette of an ibex appears in a band of rock, and its own trail intersects that of a snow hare.

Chamois, ptarmigan and other wild animals are forced to use their energy sparingly in winter due to the cold and scarce food supply. If they are disturbed and put to flight, their survival is endangered. In the worst case they are even threatened with exhaustion.

However, if you are traveling with respect and meet the wildlife with consideration, you can enjoy nature without any worries.

 
Rules for traveling

It's just not making life unnecessarily difficult for wildlife. If the retreat spaces are taken into account and the following four rules are adhered to:

1. Wild rest areas and wildlife sanctuaries note:
They provide wildlife retreat areas.

2. Stay in the forest on paths and designated routes:
This allows wildlife to get used to humans.

3. Avoid forest edges and snow-free areas:
They are the favorite places of the wild animals.

4. Lead dogs on a leash, especially in the forest:
Wildlife flee from free-roaming dogs.
