“Schafsinn”: Sheep on the Hauser Kaibling
To prepare the most beautiful ski runs for winter, during the summer months, 900 sheep are “on duty”: our four-legged slope groomers for an ideal environmental sustainable ski run maintenance!
By driving the sheep on the Hauser Kaibling, the Sheep Farming Association, together with the Hauser Kaibling Ski Lifts spark new incentives regarding landscape maintenance:
- Selective grazing of Alpine pastures and ski run areas of the Hauser Kaibling
- Scientific support by the LFZ Raumberg-Gumpenstein
- Alpine pastures’ Lamb – Project has benefits for tourism
- Professional marketing via “Ennstaler Schafbauernzentrum” (Enns valley sheep farming centre)
On our family friendly summer walking trail around the Hauser Kaibling, with beautiful viewpoints over the entire Ennstal valley, you learn interesting facts regarding the topic “sheep”. Also, you have the opportunity to experience a large flock of sheep with its shepherd and herding dogs in nature!
