That special holiday feeling in Wagrain-Kleinarl comes from real people. Allow us to introduce you to some of them.
The ski bus driver Sepp fights a battle with the bus mike for his announcements, but doesn't forget his little jokes. Landlady Anja shows us the sophistication of her folding beds - in a small guesthouse, not in a wellness temple. Markus, the snow groomer, prepares the pistes night after night and is already looking forward to the first descent in the morning. Alpaca farmer Bernhard does not spare criticism of the current tourism development on his mountain farm. Cheesemaker Markus puts himself in a trance whilst treating his cheese to some tender Mask carver Mario does something nasty, but is basically a very nice person. And mountain hut owner Alois always finds plenty to do around his hut and is happy to do without Facebook, Twitter and Co.
In addition to the professions and vocations mentioned above, there are plenty of other interesting activities in Wagrain-Kleinarl. The following ladies have each rediscovered and revived a very special craft.
Probably the most famous person from Wagrain-Kleinarl is Annemarie Moser-Pröll. She is a former ski racer, has won the overall World Cup 6 times, is a five-time world champion and Olympic champion in downhill. She has also won 62 World Cup races. And she still lives in her hometown of Kleinarl. Here you can find Annemarie Moser-Pröll's personal words as well as an Olympic special on the 40th anniversary of the Olympic gold.
