Had enough of skiing? Then why not have a go at tobogganing? We’ve got four tips on making it safe for children and still having fun.
Michaela Ehgartner is 18 years old and Austria’s junior National Champion in Table Service. Born in Styria, she studied in Carinthia and works in Tyrol. She speaks with Trisanna about motivation, wanting to learn from the best, and her yearn to travel – although perhaps quite not so far.
The ski world championships ends this weekend. But the next generation are still racing ferociously – and in Ischgl, too. We went to see the children’s training session at the Ischgl-Silvretta Ski Club. And met up with an old friend.
Every region has its traditional old recipes. Paznaun in the past was a place where people didn’t have very much. And so back then that’s how they cooked: with simple ingredients but with a great deal of love. The Trisanna Granny, Herta Siegele, shows us just how.
Spectacular jumps, breathtaking nature – and great winners. The next generation of international freeriders raced down the Quellspitze in Kappl yesterday. Missed the event? Trisanna has a quick recap. And a video for those of you who have a bit more time.
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 Paznaun valley.
Don’t worry, Trisanna’s just having a short break from winter. But one that’s worthwhile. Because we’re taking a quick look at the people who are making sure there’ll be gourmet dishes available in the mountain huts of Paznaun, alongside the usual regional specialities, in summer 2019.
Harald Seidler is 52 years old and the trade law managing director of the SSAG’s restaurant and catering business. Harald actually comes from Styria but has been in Ischgl for over 25 years now. In Trisanna, he ponders on what home means and explains why “Sorry” is often the best answer.
For another three days, Ischgl will still be the capital of Bavaria (then their Bamps* have to go back to Schui**). Which means it’s definitely the right time to explain at least a couple of those strange words they keep using. So that we can understand each other properly, and the Grattla*** will come back again. We’re not Zipflklatscher**** after all.
There are certain slopes for special circumstances. Today we reveal where you should ski if you want to feel like Marcel Hirscher just for once. Spoiler: it’s Piste 38 down to the Gampenbahn chairlift.
Do kids get hangovers? If they do, then Frank und seine Freunde will definitely get rid of them today. Ahead of his interactive concert in Galtür, we asked Germany’s favourite children’s musician a couple of questions.
Today is Shrove Tuesday. Today’s the day when the whole world does fancy dress. And once again, Ischgl is ahead of its time. Because people get dressed up here the whole season long. Why? We don’t really know. But we’ve taken supporting photos of the Ischgl Alpine zoo this year just for good measure. Leilei, hurrah, or something along those lines!
At this time of year, Ischgl’s either in Bavaria or it’s a suburb of Hamburg – both these German states have winter holidays right now. To make sure we really understand each other, we explain what the Germans mean when they use those funny words. Today, Part 1: Hamburg.
By day, Ischgl is the best ski area in the Alps. But at night, it changes its appearance and becomes, like the whole of Paznaun, a magical place. Trisanna was bewitched.
Heike Mayrhofer is 46 and the landlady of the Almstüberl mountain hut in Kappl. For more than half the year, she only sees the valley from above – and directly from the slopes. In conversation with Trsianna, she speaks about how you can develop as a person through your job, and what the mountain means for spiritual wellbeing.
It’s on again – the freeski days are back on the Idalp! You’re between 8 and 16 years of age, want to take your first big jumps, learn from real pros and – whisper it – not even have to pay for it? Then step this way, please.
Emil Zangerl, 85, is the face of Paznaun’s smuggling past. For decades he smuggled goods over from Switzerland into the valley. On skis, too, and mostly when it was really dark. He tells Trisanna some of his best stories. Today: the trick with the man in Gföllhaus.
Another ear worm from the HerrH concert in Kappl? If you didn’t manage to make there it after all, your next opportunity to enjoy children’s music in Paznaun is today! Frank und seine Freunde will be providing the party atmosphere in Galtür from 3pm today. And for the time before the concert, Trisanna’s music editor has put together a playlist of the best children’s songs.
