Ski touring in Tyrol: Rules for ski tourers

Mostly it's the ignorance of hikers and sportspeople that startles wildlife, thus upsetting the balance of nature. Because those who do not sufficiently understand the concerns of others will also find it hard to respect them. That's why in Brixental Valley you will find the Woipertouringer tips; wherever he appears - be it on hiking boards, signs, in brochures and newspapers - he asks for attention and to observe his suggestions.

The Woipertouringer in now way seeks to curtail your enjoyment of nature, but quite to the contrary seeks to preserve what has always provided enjoyment - the alpine world in all its diversity.
