Helmut Lunner is 53, works as an event manager at the Paznaun tourism association in Ischgl, and lives in Galtür. He’s the man responsible for bringing the really big stars to Paznaun. Originally from Carinthia, he explains to Trisanna how you grow into a job, and what makes an event a good event.
This is where we take a look at the big moral questions in the daily life of a skier. For example: can I wear joggers to dinner if the hotel specifies “evening wear” but 1) it’s a very nice tracksuit and 2) I wear it at home every evening anyway?
515 expertly-prepared hectares of slopes are waiting to be skied down in Ischgl. That sounds pretty impressive, but how big is that really? We’ve made a few comparisons.
Whether you’re skiing with friends or with the family, souvenir photos are always important. Here’s a couple of quick tips to make your group photos really perfect.
They’re our best friends, so we really don’t like leaving them at home. But winter holidays with a dog are not so easy. At least not when you want both humans and animals to have a good time. We’ve put together 5 tips for you.
Sabrina Popp is 38, but when you ask her, she says she’s 40 – rounded up. Originally from Germany, she has spent the past 11 winter seasons in Ischgl; in summer, she travels around the world. She tells Trisanna why she lives her life the way she does – and why she’s so attached to Paznaun all the same.
The Alpine Ski World Championships is a time for experts. And on Austrian TV channel ORF in particular, they use expressions which normal people can’t understand. But Trisanna is here to help: we’ve asked Ischgl experts to explain sports journalist German to us. Today: what, then, is an aggressive snow?
At every Skiing World Championships, the TirolBerg is the meeting place for sportspeople, officials and VIPs – and this year in Åre is no different. Ischgl is traditionally one of the hosts. We spoke with Andreas Steibl, director of the tourism association, to find out more on the purpose of the event.
The “snow plough” has long since done its time – these days, children learn the “pizza wedge”. Our expert, Christian Pöll from the Silvretta Galtür Ski School, tells us what else goes on on the baby slopes, where children learn to ski.
They’re spectacular and spellbinding – the ski school demo shows are often breath-taking. A regular feature in the programme is the torch relay. But isn’t it easy to get burnt? We asked all about it.
After the slopes is before the slopes, and on our skiing holiday, we like to spend the time in between in the hotel. You can listen to music there, too. But what? This playlist, for example, which sets us up perfectly for the evening.
There are some days when you’re walking through the town and you think: hey, this isn’t Ischgl, this is a zoo! That’s because of all the fluffy animal hats. They don’t just look fun, they keep your head warm, too. Trisanna wanted to know which animal is most in demand this year.
Jürgen Kurz, 50 years old, is the owner of the Ischgler Hof hotel, as well as chairman of the supervisory board at the Silvretta cableway company (Silvrettaseilbahn AG or SSAG). He tells Trisanna what it takes to be good host – and why he has every confidence in the future.
Paznaun is an historical region, full of wild stories about clever people, forward-looking deeds, figures of good and evil – and the devil is usually never very far away. At least not in the legends. Today, a knight from See hunts Christians through Paznaun, and must atone for his sins for eternity.
This is where we take a look at the big moral questions in the daily life of a skier. Such as: if someone has pinched my ski poles from the ski storage cellar, can I just take some other poles out of there?
Ski goggles are perhaps the most under-appreciated part of winter sport gear. But the ideal goggles don’t just give you comfort and style – they are first and foremost about functionality, and that means safety. Trisanna’s found the best goggles around right now for different weather conditions.
The Freeride Worldtour is one of the most spectacular of sports events. This weekend, the freeriders stopped over in Kappl. Trisanna’s photo editor brings you the best Instagram images.
Yes, places change over the years. Trisanna’s photo editor has dug out old pictures and then photographed the same places for you again, several years later. Today: the village street looking down to the Hotel Silvretta.
239 kilometres of perfectly-prepared slopes wait to be skied on in Ischgl. We think that’s quite a lot – and we’ve had a look at what 239 kilometres might also mean elsewhere.
