Staying safe in the guaranteed snow
Hochfügen and premium manufacturer BMW have worked together closely since 2011 to provide joint offers on and off the pistes. In the upcoming season, interested parties can attend training sessions at the new “avalanche search and rescue training field presented by BMW”, which are being offered free of charge every day during operating times.
While the joy of skiing was the main focus of previous offers – the BMW xDrive Cup with the giant slalom racing slope and the BMW Canyon of Joy – the upcoming winter season will see skier safety off the pistes take centre stage. “For BMW and for us as a ski resort, it is incredibly important not only that our guests enjoy themselves but also that they stay safe,” explains Helmuth Grünbacher, Managing Director of the Hochfügen ski lifts, on the topic of the successful partnership with BMW.
A must for every skier, ski tourer and freerider
All freeriders and ski tourers should be able to launch a professional and life-saving avalanche rescue search in an emergency. They must learn in advance how to handle emergency equipment correctly and undergo regular training. From winter 15/16, off-piste skiers will be able to visit the brand new, 30 by 30 metre “avalanche search and rescue training field presented by BMW” in order to learn how to use avalanche transceivers, probes and shovels correctly in the event of an avalanche with casualties, step by step and free of charge.
