A number of dramas took place on the Austrian ski slopes this winter. Since the start of the season in November 2022, 13 people have died in accidents. There have never been more. “So far we have had twice as many deaths on the slopes as in previous years. So far there have been 200 police recordings, including 100 seriously injured,” says Innsbruck chief inspector Stefan Eder (50) to “Bild”. In Tyrol alone, eleven people lost their lives.

There are even fewer accidents compared to previous years. But when it crashes, it often has deadly consequences. One reason is the lack of snow, as Eder explains. “Important fall areas are missing. Skiers fall over the dangerous edge of the piste after making mistakes, overestimating themselves or going too fast. The artificial snow also makes the slopes rock-hard in the morning.”
