When you ride on the Powder Department Runs you leave the secured ski area! These runs are NOT groomed, have NO avalanche protections (nor for any other alpine dangers) and are NOT checked. The Powder Department Runs are (as is always the case in the open ski area) not closed nor declared being “open”.
You act exclusively at your own risk and are outside of the liability area of the lift operators, who only provide the open, groomed pistes and ski routes and do not assume any liability.
The Freeride Runs should only be entered with a certified mountain and ski guide.
EXERCISE AREA FOR SEARCHING AVALANCHE VICTIMS
The use of searching devices must be continuously exercised, to be able to use it in an emergency situation.The ORTOVOX STATION (advanced rescue training) system is a compact and technically mature facility for practising the search of buried victims with avalanche rescue beacon and avalanche probe. It can be used daily free of charge with your own equipment.

THE FASCINATING BEAUTY OF HIGH MOUNTAINS ALSO INCORPORATES DANGERS:
crevasses, avalanches, snow storms, sudden incidences of fog and also intense sunlight.
Outside of the marked and open slopes you alone are responsible for your own safety!
You are venturing into high-alpine, glacial and avalanche-prone terrain.
Appropriate equipment and knowledge of the dangers involved is essential! Inform on the current avalanche situation before heading for the back-country.
When riding down the Powder Department Runs you are leaving the secured ski area! The routes are NOT groomed, NOT safe from avalanches (or other alpine dangers) and are NOT checked. The Powder Department Runs are (as is usual in open ski areas) neither barred nor declared as being open.
You act exclusively at your own responsibility and are outside of the liability area of the lift operators.
The operators offer the open, groomed pistes and ski routes and assume no liability whatsoever.
If you are not sufficiently informed on alpine dangers and avalanches, please book a training session with a pro (e.g. guided mountain or ski guide) before going into the open area on your own.
