Winter sport is a bearable burden for nature, as long as it’s performed within 'regulated boundaries'. When sport is performed away from the marked routes and slopes, however, it can cause problems. By supporting this campaign, we want to encourage a higher level of awareness with regard to respectful behaviour towards forests and animals. Winter sport fans need to be aware of the fact that the forest is a habitat for fl ora and fauna. Our forests have an important protective function for us humans. They minimise soil erosion and they prevent or stop mudfl ows and avalanches that would endanger us. Therefore, it’s also important that we accept the boundaries of our natural fl ora and fauna and that we stay on the designated routes and slopes. More information under


Shuttleberg Mountain is very much aware of its role as the region’s leading enterprise. That’s why we lead by example by protecting the beautiful nature that surrounds us. Our landscape is our most valuable asset. Only a sustainable approach to the way we work within the eco-system can guarantee long-term prosperity for the people in the region. Necessary encroachments are carried out as gently as possible, keeping the effect on the environment as minimal as possible. In addition, each construct tonal encroachment on the mountain will be compensated with ecologically valuable measures such as creating new ponds, moorland protection, formation of deadwood and old-growth islands, adapting retention basins into biotopes, planting rare conifers, revegetation and landscape management.

Detailed information to increase and maintain public awareness of these issues will accompany these measures. An important partner in this mission is the Salzburg County 'Respect your Boundaries' campaign.
