Dominik Pircher is 37 and has run the ski school in See for the past year and a half. When summer comes to Austria, he flies away to follow the winter. A conversation about being away – and coming back.
Jumps, spectacular runs and all of that with a downhill gradient of 60 percent or more: the Freeride World Tour is one of the most spectacular sporting events in winter sport right now. This weekend the freeriders are stopping off in Kappl.
An occasional series discussing the big questions of skiing – questions with only yes or no answers. Today: is it cool to have music blasting out of your backpack?
Ischgl is special. Not just for holiday-makers, but for the people of Paznaun, too – and everyone who works here. Starting this season, all employees will receive the Ischgl Crew Card with a huge range of leisure time and further education special offers. We spoke to Daniela Wolf and Werner Aloys to find out more.
Team Dynamic is one of Ischgl Ski School’s three show teams. This evening, the guys will once again conjure up some spectacular runs over the Prennerhang, as part of the ski school’s demo show. We spoke to them.
January’s always a bit grey – in the city, anyway. In Paznaun, it’s different. That’s what Instagram says.
A neutral, white ski outfit is a thing of real beauty. But what about when it’s foggy and snowing? Right, that’s when your outfit really has to pop on the slopes! Trisanna has been on the lookout for real fashion pros.
Michaela Pfeifer is 30 years old and has worked for five years as a freelance graphic designer in Kappl. She tells Trisanna just why this move has made her happy – and why you should just do your own thing.
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 telltale tights.
This is where we take an occasional look at the big moral questions in the daily life of a skier. For example: is it acceptable to make up a packed lunch at the breakfast buffet?
Yes, places change over the years. Trisanna’s photo editor has dug out old pictures and photographed the same places for you again, several years later. Today: the Piste 1 valley downhill run
There’s been a female snowboarder crew in Ischgl for a couple of years now. The Shred Chix don’t just mix it up in the fun parks and on the powder slopes, but do a whole lot more besides. Which is why we met up with them.
Have you always asked yourself how influencers produce those elaborate stories? Trisanna’s picture editor has the answer.
In winter, so they say, Ischgl isn’t a village any more – it’s a metropolis. That’s when people from almost every part of the world are bustling around down in the town and up in the mountain. But in ski gear, everyone looks pretty much the same. Or can you work out where these people are from?
Without them, we wouldn’t be able to move: snow plough drivers like Benni, 29, from Ischgl, clear the snow from the streets and pavements for us. On one of the most wintery days of the season so far, we were in the cockpit with our video camera.
In the past few days, it’s really been snowing here in Paznaun. One street, the one to Galtür, was even closed for a short while for safety reasons. Trisanna wanted to know: who takes these decisions? We got the answers from the mayor and chairman of the avalanche commission in Ischgl, Werner Kurz.
Snowfall. Icy wind. And right now, unfortunately, the children’s ski course is about to start. Now what? We asked an expert: Christian Pöll from the Silvretta Ski School in Galtür.
Long before the first skiers are allowed out onto the mountain, Serafin Siegel and the avalanche commission people have begun their working day. It’s especially important on days like these.
Paznaun is a region full of history and wild stories about clever people, visionary deeds, good and bad figures – and the devil is normally never far away. At least not in the legends. He’s haunting Galtür today, gathering in a lost soul.
It’s snowing – and HOW! The people who really know all about it are the ones who saw more snow here in Ischgl than a city dweller might see in their whole life – and who shared the most fascinating moments on Instagram. Like our Instagrammers of the Weekend.
