When the sun starts shining for longer again, nature wakes up – and people are coaxed outside again, too, for longer and more often. But the power of the sun in spring is often underestimated.
We measure the temperature in degrees, of course. Celsius. Or is it Fahrenheit? Haven’t we also heard something about temperatures in Kelvin? What does it all actually mean on a scale of zero to one hundred?
Idalp is the hub at the centre of the Silvretta Arena. It’s worth taking a closer look at this special place. Here are the facts.
When the temperatures warm up, the snow changes, too – and with it, the skiing. A short explanation of terms.
The See ski area is well laid-out, popular with families and leisure skiers – and innovative. Because not only is snow produced here, but also the electricity to make that snow. And more. Trisanna reports from the station of the future.
The avalanche risk level in Paznaun has just been classified as “very high”. A good moment to remember how dangerous avalanches are and what we can do to avoid that danger – at least in part.
Accidents happen time and again in the snow. Even if you get off lightly, it can take hours until help arrives. But least you can’t die of thirst there, can you?
How many kilometres of ski runs are there? How many ski lifts? And how many people can be brought up the mountain each hour? Trisanna’s got the fantastic figures – for you to guess. Click here to play.
Huge, wide and open. This is the name of the Trisanna playlist which we’ve put together in honour of the opening of all the Paznaun ski areas. Five wonderful songs which take us with them “Into the great wide open.”
Are you a fan of Paznaun? Or a local? Either way, you’ll soon find out here how well you know the mountains of Paznaun. Our guess is that anything less than three right answers will be disappointing.
A look at Galtür’s ski area. And six songs to go with it, songs which interpret the same subject in very different ways. Just like in real life – because the sun never rises twice in the same way over the mountains of Paznaun.
Have a look at this film of the Silvretta Arena as it looks today. There’s just something missing. Something important. Find out the answer at the end of the clip.

It’s an iconic Paznaun mountain peak, that much is clear. Just click to find out if you’ve recognised it frin this lovely image from Marmota.
The device in the picture above shows an interesting achievement of modern times: a webcam. Webcams are weatherproof cameras which take pictures at short intervals and make them accessible via a website.
Maritta Jungmann knows Paznaun like the inside of her pocket. And in that pocket she always carries a camera. Maritta’s pictures give a wonderful impression of the area, its moods, its beauty and all the […]
Accidents happen on the mountain just as much as in the valley. The biggest hiking or mountain-climbing mistakes can be avoided, however, with a simple but surprising trick.
We love the bilberry, as it’s called in Paznaun, although it has many other names: European blueberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) if you want its name in High German, whortleberry, hurtleberry, wimberry, wild berry or huckleberry. No other berry has as many names, and no other is probably so beloved. Trisanna has six good reasons why.
The Silvretta High Alpine road is just as much of a tourist staple as the Colosseum in Rome or the Eiffel Tower. And justifiably so – it opens your eyes to the Alps.
