There was a lot to do for the mountain rescue services in the region last weekend.

Numerous skiers suffered shoulder and knee injuries at Brauneck.

And there were also tobogganing accidents on the Blomberg.

Lenggries/Wackersberg

- The Lenggries mountain rescue service had to go out on numerous missions at the weekend.

The reason was the weather conditions: "Poor visibility and large amounts of fresh snow," sums up operations manager Christoph Brenninger.

21 skiers were injured on Saturday and Sunday.

On Sunday around 11 a.m., a 42-year-old skier made an emergency call.

She had fallen and was between the Ahorn chair exit and the mountain station of the Brauneck Bahn.

Two emergency services from the Lenggries mountain rescue service, who are stationed near the site, and a rescuer from the Bad Tölz mountain rescue service.

The injured person was difficult to talk to and complained of severe shoulder pain.

The commander called for an ambulance, because of the poor visibility no helicopter could fly.

"Under better circumstances, some of the patients would have been transported by air," says Brenninger.

The Tölz mountain rescue emergency doctor made his way to the injured person in the gondola, while the rescuers transported the woman to the gondola exit with the Skidoo.

The emergency doctor found that the woman had broken her upper arm and probably dislocated her shoulder.

The patient kept losing consciousness and was taken down to the valley with the Akja, accompanied by the emergency doctor.

She was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Unusual: High number of almost identical shoulder injuries

As Brenninger further reports, 14 similar falls occurred on Sunday alone.

The high number of almost identical shoulder injuries was unusual – five in total.

There were a few knee injuries on Saturday.

The mountain rescue service community, which consists of Lenggries, Bad Tölz, Wolfratshausen and Munich, was on site with 18 helpers at the weekend. The trainers from the mountain rescue service region Hochland, who happened to be at Brauneck, provided support during the operations.

Not only injured skiers called for the helpers.

The Tölzer mountain rescue service was also deployed three times on the Blomberg, as Horst Stahl reports.

On Saturday, a tobogganist injured his foot slightly.

"During night tobogganing, a tobogganist suffered a lower leg fracture around 10 p.m.," says Stahl.

Another tobogganing accident happened on Sunday around 2 p.m. in the lower area.

"Here there was a suspicion of an arm fracture," says Stahl.

There was a lot going on on the Blomberg, but the conditions for tobogganing were actually ideal.

"It wasn't icy." The accidents were more likely due to the fact that the tobogganists were not practiced.

The toboggan lift near the Blomberghaus is very well received.

Luckily, says Stahl, there have been no mountain rescue missions there so far.
