Snow and Safety Conference 2017

back to magazine overview

The "Snow & Safety Conference" was held in time for the start of the season. The 6th edition could be celebrated with plenty of snow, which made not only the Orga Team around Lech Zürs Tourismus & Katharina Schuler happy, but also our industry partners, speakers, guides and numerous participants & guests. 

In addition to the annual events "Snow & Safety" and "Freeride & Saftey Coaching" - which would not be possible without the numerous guides of the local ski schools and internationally successful freeride pros. only half as great - there were again 2 new program highlights this year:"Schneedeckenstabiliättest" with scientist Alexander Prokop and "Helicopter Rescue am Arlberg" powered by Mons Royal with the rescue team "Crew Gallus 3". Here the participants were able to get an idea of the current stability of the snow cover and gained an insight behind the scenes of a rescue mission.  

The participants were also informed and trained "off-piste" on all aspects of safety on the mountain. At this point a big thank you to all participants of the 6th Snow & Safety Conference: our industry partners, speakers, discussion participants, workshop leaders, guides and our local partners on site! THANK YOU for a great and eventful Snow & Safety Conference!
