Leutasch – The cross-country ski trail in Leutasch, which the TVB Seefeld produces from preserved and artificial snow, was a real run at the weekend. The fact that there was still no crowd was due to the ingenious access management developed by the TVB in advance. The athletes had to register on the Internet and were assigned a time window of two hours. After 100 cross-country skiers it was over. Securitys also monitored that the distance rules were being observed. The recreational athletes were happy to be able to open the cross-country skiing season despite the lockdown and were impressed by the commitment of the TVB.

Walser wants to bring about a rethink

But that seems to have been the fate of those responsible. The Innsbruck-Land district authority closed the snow farming trail on Sunday afternoon with the argument that it was a sports facility. And as is well known, according to the Covid-19 Protective Measures Ordinance, these may not be entered. The TVB had all access systems that had been set up removed on Monday morning – the 1.4 kilometer long trail is no longer officially open.

„Ein Grund, warum die Loipe als vermeintliche Sportstätte eingestuft wurde, ist unser Präventivkonzept.“ – Elias Walser (TVB-Chef)

TVB managing director Elias Walser shows in an interview with the TT Understanding that “there is a certain nervousness and the authorities are looking very carefully”. At the same time, he points out that cross-country skiing is an individual sport and that the TVB has taken extensive safety measures. “One reason why the trail was classified as a supposed sports facility is probably our prepared preventive concept,” says Walser. A paradoxical situation. That is why the TVB managing director is also looking to talk to the authorities again to bring about a rethink.

FPÖ state party chairman Markus Abwerzger locates “over-zealous authorities” in view of the cross-country skiing trail closure and calls for a legal investigation. “If this procedure were covered by law – then every hiking trail would have to be closed and declared a sports facility,” says Abwerzger, repeating his accusation that the “ordinances of the Ministry of Health have massive gaps”.
