Dutch motorcyclist rescued from Austrian ski slope after poor navigation

The 41-year-old Dutchman left Samnaun, in the far east of Switzerland, on Friday. Ischgl, just over the border, wanted to go to Austria. As a bird’s eye view there is a distance of about 10 kilometers between these places, but by road it is a journey of about 80 kilometers around the mountains. However, the navigation system suggested a route over the mountains and the man decided to take it.

Not injured, dead

The route first went over a mountain bike route to an altitude of 2800 meters above sea level. Time has turned on the border mountain Palinkopf. The man was completely lost in the fog. He was riding his motorcycle on a ski slope. His wheel slipped and fell. The engine was so damaged that the man could not continue. Despite the bad weather, he decided to camp near his motorcycle.

When the Dutchman woke up this morning and the fog had not yet lifted, his alarm went off. Since it was located near a cable car, mountain rescuers were able to locate it quite quickly. His motorcycle was found. According to the Tyrolean state police, the motorcyclist was not injured, but it was clear that he was out of breath.
