Kirchberg – 19 employees of the Kirchberg mountain rescue service and an alpine policeman went out on Saturday to rescue three skiers. The three winter sports enthusiasts from Austria and Germany had been to the ski area there, where, according to the police, they knew their way around. At around 3:30 p.m. they left the piste, followed the existing downhill tracks in the deep snow and got into a ditch. The German (25) no longer dared to continue downhill. He made an emergency call around 5:30 p.m.

The other two skiers were already several meters below the German and continued the descent until they could no longer continue. The mountain rescue team first recovered the Germans unharmed around 7:50 p.m. and then also the two Austrians (24 and 22 years old) around 9:30 p.m. One of the two was injured. How difficult is not known. (
