In ski resorts around the world the winter needs support. We accompany different helpers who work hard for winter pleasures.

Sometimes they work in secret and start their day long before the first skiers are on the slopes, and sometimes they can be seen in the middle of the turbulent ski circus. Ski instructors, innkeepers, drivers of snow crawlers and many more work hard in order for winter sport fans to get their money’s worth.

1. Wildkogel
With Clemens we go from lift to lift as he takes us with him on the snow caterpillar using the snow cannon to get the slopes ready. We are on the way with Gabriel, who is responsible for the safety of the gondolas. Christian's day begins at 2 a.m.: he sets off to stake out new areas with risk of avalanches or provides help at the huts and clears access roads.

2. Kitzbühel
Ann Kathrin is a ski instructor - whether children or adults, she takes everybody down the mountain. At the end of the day she takes us to après-ski with... ...Simon. The long-time employee knows everyone in the mountains and has experienced many parties. The men and women from Mountain rescue have the most dangerous job and are there when no one else can help.
