Safety first at ski touring paradise Sellraintal valley
New avalanche training centre puts backcountry skiers at ease
The popular ski touring route up to Lampsenspitze, located at approximately 2,800 m
altitude in the Sellraintal valley near Innsbruck, is now featuring an additional safety
checkpoint. Besides the Praxmar Educational Ski Touring Trail equipped with
numerous sign panels that invite backcountry skiers to put the acquired information into
practice right then and there, a brand new Avalanche Training Centre (ATC) enables
winter sports enthusiasts to enjoy unique mountain adventures in maximum safety.
Developed in Switzerland, this state-of-the-art facility has been put into place just next
to popular Alpengasthof Praxmar, a cosy mountain inn run by the Melmer family. Here
backcountry skiers can put their avalanche beacons to the test, making sure that all
transceivers are in full working order. Furthermore, the facility offers hands-on practice
on how to locate a burial victim within maximum survival time (less than twenty
minutes!), using an avalanche probe. This tracking exercise is made possible by five
permanently buried transmitters, all of which can be activated individually according to
each participant’spersonal time limits. The easy-to-use training device displays all target
hits, providing extra reassurance to ski tourers as they set out to conquer the pristine
slopes in utmost safety.
All ATC mountain safety checks are avalable free of charge. Both the Praxmar
Educational Ski Touring Trail, together with the Avalanche Training Centre, put Kühtai
and the Sellraintal valley at the vanguard of alpine safety throughout the ski season.
