Safety information

Outside the opening hours of the ski slopes (from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) there is a general closure of the ski slopes due to the risk of serious accidents during the preparation of the ski slopes (winch, etc.). It is forbidden to drive on and enter the closed ski slopes. Climbing along the ski slope outside the operating hours is not allowed. There is danger to life due to preparation with the help of winches!

 

Please take the warnings seriously and use a headlamp in the evening for your own safety! Mountain sports are - even more so in winter - above all subject to personal responsibility. Tourism associations, mountain railroads or avalanche warning services do not assume any liability based on the information provided. The Planai-Hochwurzen lifts and the Schladming Tourist Association thank you for your understanding!

 

Basically, the following applies: Before every ski tour or snowshoe hike, it is essential to check the current weather and avalanche report - which can be found at www.lawine-steiermark.at.

Tips and hints

Safety information

Safety on the mountainside: changes in the weather, sudden fall in temperature, thunder storms, wind, fog and snow fields are all objective dangers and require the correct behaviour whilst underway. the landlords of the huts are all very knowledgeable about the mountains and can give you good tips about the weather and the routes. Insufficient equipment, exaggerated opinion of ones capabilities, frivolousness, poor health condition and a false evaluation of the situation can lead to a critical situation. In thunder storms: summits, crest-sites and safety rope aids are to be avoided.

If something should happen call following emergency numbers:
No. 140 - the number for all Alpine Emergencies in all of Austria
No. 112 - European emergency call GSM emergency-call-service

Questions and answers

Question from Paul Matt · February 02, 2021 · Community
Auch hier mein Beitrag - für eine Bergtour, egal ob mit Ski oder zu Fuß darf es keine Gebühr geben. Als nächstes fällt den Liftbetreibern vielleicht auch noch ein, eine Gebühr im Sommer fürs Wandern zu verlangen. Die Benützung der üblichen Wanderwege ist in Österreich durch das Forstgesetz geregelt, auch wenn diese halt zufällig über eine Piste gehen. Laut österr. Forstgesetz ist das Betreten des Waldes zu Erholungszwecken für jederman zulässig. Wenn man also auf den üblichen Wanderwegen bleibt, kann mir auch der Aufstieg auf den Pleschnitzzinken, egal zu welcher Jahreszeit, keine Gebühr kosten. Ein Parkgebühr ist da schon etwas anderes, weil die Parkplätze meist in privater Hand sind.
