Avalanche educational trail
The avalanche educational trail in the Rofan mountains in Maurach provides important information on the proper behaviour in the open terrain and how to use avalanche transceivers. Seven stations explain potential dangers when skiing off-piste and give advice how to minimize your exposure to risk. The trail is also intended for snowshoers who explore alpine terrain.
Covering a length of 200 metres and an elevation gain of 200 metres, the trail provides valuable and live-saving know-how. Located adjacent to the Rofan cable car at an elevation of 1,800 metres, seven interpretive panels explain snow conditions, types of terrain and avalanches. The aim is to provide backcountry skiers with knowledge and decision-making skills necessary to minimize their exposure to risk in the outdoors. The avalanche educational trail was built in cooperation with the sports outfitter ORTOVOX.
