Austrian media report the death of a Polish tourist in the popular Zillertal Arena ski resort in Austria. The woman was skiing down the red slope, but she unexpectedly lost control of her skis and fell from a height of about 10 meters. This is another dangerous incident in Tyrol recently.

The incident took place in the Zillertal Arena winter resort in the municipality of Rohrberg. The ski resort in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps has 163 kilometers of ski slopes and 50 ski lifts. One of them was a 35-year-old tourist from Poland on Saturday, January 13. The woman took the red route number 11, which runs from the Rosenalm cable car station down to the valley. Around 1:10 p.m., the Polish woman lost control while sliding down a steep slope and fell into the abyss. “The woman fell from a height of about 10 meters into a steep forest area, fell several times and finally fell with serious injuries in the snow between roots and stones,” we read in the Austrian news website oe24.at.
