Likelihood of triggering
Triggering is possible, even from low additional loads, particularly on the indicated steep slopes (steeper than about 30 degrees). In certain situations some large, and in isolated cases very large natural avalanches are possible.
Warth & Schröcken.
2 charming mountain villages.
Warth and Schröcken, two Walser mountain villages in Vorarlberg; original, aware of traditions and characterised by the settlement of the Walsers from the Swiss canton of Valais.
The houses have been built in typical Vorarlberg architectural style and blend very well into the landscape. The shingled house facades create a lovely warm atmosphere and make the towns very romantic and cosy in the winter.
Due to thealtitude location of between 1200 and 1500 metres and more, the towns and Warth-Schröcken ski area too are blessed with abundant snowfall, which is why both towns have become one of the most important tourist regions in the Arlberg. Warth-Schröcken is therefore the most snow-abundant ski area in Europe!
