Guide your guests safely through the winter season

05.01.2021 08:31 By Pamina Bötsch

The winter season is slowly getting underway and with it already known problems are brought out of hibernation. There are mountain rescue missions due to disoriented ski tourers or outdoor athletes who underestimated the snow conditions and started their mountain adventure with the wrong equipment. 

Especially in the last year, the trend sport ski touring has increased, which means that many newcomers strap the skis to their feet to go to the snow-covered mountain. Despite sufficient information platforms, however, it still happens that too little information is obtained about the situation on the mountain before the start of the tour, resulting in tragic accidents in the worst case.

 

Outdooractive's avalanche and snow layer is the ideal tool for visitors to find out about the current situation at their destination before setting out on a tour.

Destinations and DMS can do preliminary work here to give visitors to their own region the information proverbially "directly to hand". With the detailed preparation of tour descriptions via Outdooractive, it is possible to integrate day-specific warnings and add an equipment list. In addition, users can have the current layers displayed directly on the map of the tour description to check snow and avalanche conditions. On Outdooractive, your guests will find everything in one place and can react to warnings at an early stage, without major hurdles, and reschedule if necessary.

 

Destinations can thus proactively counteract accidents and let their visitors start the winter season with sufficient safety.
