If we talk about “safeguarding the ski area”, primarily we think of safety measures on avalanche-prone ski slopes and regions. But there are so many other duties: The whole range also includes signposting correctly and making safe the ski runs and the edge of the slope as well as upholstering lift towers and snow guns or installing safety nets. To cut a long story short: all atypical dangers in the ski area.
In the last decades we have made huge steps forwards when it comes to safety. Wooden fences were replaced by top modern safety nets. Also the expert team of Bergbahnen Sölden has been working on the pulse of time. Only during the last 4 years they installed between 800 and 900 meters of fences per year.
The brand-new safety fences are “homemade” in the metalworking department of Bergbahnen Sölden, preventing accidents in many areas featuring a high risk of falling. Meanwhile the fences were named “Sölden Zaun” by the mountain lift staff.
