Austrian Snowmobile Act
Safety on the piste
To increase safety on Salzburg's pistes, particularly in connection with the use of piste grooming machines, please refer to the following guidelines. Piste grooming machines are typical sights on ski slopes - this has been confirmed repeatedly by the Austrian Supreme Court in its findings.
Piste grooming machines pose dangers, particularly if these machines are not noticed by oncoming piste users due to the local conditions, or if piste users fail to observe the FIS Rules of Conduct and/or the principles of responsible behaviour while engaging in winter sports on the pistes.
