Avalanche and fall: two rescue missions at the same time in the Schlick | Tyrolean daily newspaper online

Telfes in the Stubaital – In the Schlick 2000 ski area there were two rescue missions almost simultaneously on Tuesday morning. At around 10.40 a.m., a 33-year-old variant skier and his companion drove into a steep northern gully below the Krinnenkopf in the open ski area. The group had already traveled the channel once before. On the second descent, a slab of snow came off, caught the 33-year-old and carried him around 50 to 100 meters. The man triggered the avalanche airbag and remained on the surface of the slab. His companions were not hit by the avalanche.

The casualty was rescued using rope and then flown to the clinic in the C1 emergency doctor’s helicopter. He suffered injuries of indefinite degree. According to the avalanche report, level 3 was issued above the tree line.

About half an hour before the avalanche, a 27-year-old variant skier and three companions left the mountain station of the Kreuzjochbahn in the open ski area in the direction of the Stubai Valley. The 27-year-old missed a rock drop and fell about ten meters. The woman injured herself to an indefinite degree. An attendant made an emergency call.

Because of the poor weather and visibility conditions, the woman from the Vorderes Stubaital mountain rescue service could initially only be brought to the middle station with the Akja. From there, they were then transported to the clinic by police helicopter. The emergency medical helicopter C1 was not available due to another rescue operation in the ski area. (TT.com)
