Ischgl is not known as a place of rest. Instead of inner contemplation, you tend to focus on the retreat. So that tourists can pay attention to the hut music undisturbed, a strict ski shoe ban applies from 8 p.m. The clattering of the heavy boots apparently caused acoustic threats during the party slalom.
The ban, which has been in effect for three years, has so far provided the media with a lot of fun. But it is actually punished. An Austrian ski vacationer received an organ penalty on Wednesday. The shoe offender was fined 25 euros. With that he got off lightly. After all, the sentence is up to 2,000 euros.
The man took it with humor: “You happy Austria.” It could have been worse. Because those who fill up too much at the ski parties and relieve themselves in public must shell out 50 euros. Vomiting also costs 50 euros.

The penalty must be paid within 14 days. At the latest, the Ischgl guests should be sober again.
