DAV tips for nature-friendly winter tours

  • Mind the markings, hints and route recommendations of the DAV project "Environmentally friendly ski mountaineering".
  • Respect and protected nature-sanctuaries and avoid making loud noise.
  • Recognize habitats: Avoid wild animals as much as possible, only observe them from a distance, avoid feeding grounds, leash dogs.
  • Avoid peaks and ridges before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. in high winter.
  • In wooded areas and at the tree line, stay on the usual ski routes, forest and hiking trails, keep your distance from groups of trees and bushes.
  • Protect reforestation and young forest.
  • Arrive in an environmentally friendly way: use public transport or form car pools, use designated parking spaces, do not block any driveways.
  • Rather plan multi-day stays than frequent day trips, use the gastronomic offer on site.
  • Plan tours with guides and maps that have the DAV seal of approval "Nature-friendly ski tours /winter tours", and find out about the nature and culture of the destination area.
  • Observe the rules for ski tours on slopes.

Further information can be found on the website of the German Alpine Club.

10 DAV rules for ski tours on slopes

Ski slopes are primarily available to users of the cable cars and lifts!

  • Ascent and descent are at your own risk and responsibility.
  • Only climb up at the edge of the slope (FIS rule No. 7). Do this one behind the other, not next to each other. Pay attention to the other Individuals skiing.
  • Take particular care on hilltops, in narrow passages, steep slopes and when the slopes are iced over. When crossing the slopes, walk individually or keep a distance to each other. No crossing in obscured areas.
  • Always observe runway closures, warnings and local regulations.
  • When working on the slopes, the slopes are closed for safety reasons. There is a risk to life, especially when using rope winches.
  • Only drive on freshly groomed ski slopes in the peripheral areas. Always walk with the headlamp switched on in the dark and wear reflective clothing.
  • Pay attention to alpine dangers, especially avalanches. Do not go on ski tours if avalanches are expected. Only open slopes are protected from avalanches.
  • Only go on ski tours when there is enough snow. Avoid damage to the plant and ground cover.
  • Be considerate of wildlife. At dusk and in the dark, animals are severely disturbed. Do not take dogs with you on the ski slopes.
  • Observe the regulations at the parking lots, pay parking fees, travel in an environmentally friendly manner.
