Mountain sports and the assessment of the situation on site is - even more so in winter - primarily your own responsibility. Tourism associations or avalanche warning services do not assume any liability based on information provided.
The tours in the Sölktälern lead through alpine terrain. Be aware of the long ascents. They require safety equipment, knowledge and skills of a mountaineer! Plan your tour carefully and pay attention to the current avalanche situation report!
You can inform yourself about the current avalanche situation at the avalanche warning service of Styria. Hompage: lawine-steiermark.at Avalanche situation report Tape: +43 800 31 1588
