Tips and hints
Safety on the mountainside: changes in the weather, sudden fall in temperature, thunder storms, wind, fog and snow fields are all objective dangers and require the correct behaviour whilst underway. the landlords of the huts are all very knowledgeable about the mountains and can give you good tips about the weather and the routes. Insufficient equipment, exaggerated opinion of ones capabilities, frivolousness, poor health condition and a false evaluation of the situation can lead to a critical situation. In thunder storms: summits, crest-sites and safety rope aids are to be avoided.
If something should happen call following emergency numbers:
- No. 140 - the number for all Alpine Emergencies in all of Austria
- No. 112 - European emergency call GSM emergency-call-service
Near the Bierstube restaurant in Weißenbach, a pleasant, slightly ascending cross-country trail leads past the village of Weißenbach in the direction of Rössing (Ramsau). After the turnaround point you walk back to Weißenbach (village center with village café) or continue to the starting point. From there you can run another loop in a southeasterly direction before you unstrap your cross-country skis again at the starting point. - IMPORTANT: The trails are only groomed with sufficient natural snow!
