Tyrol/Ischgl. On the feast of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, around 40 meteorologists and weather presenters from more than 10 countries gathered in the snow-covered Piazza Silvretta to analyze current weather conditions while simultaneously sending stunning live images from Piazza Silvretta to all parts of Europe. .
The winter sports resort of Ischgl in Tyrol provided a picturesque winter backdrop for this year’s weather experts’ meeting, which featured a notable number of participants. A total of about 40 “weather frogs and fairies” from ten countries were represented. Germany again had the largest number of participants, while Denmark, the Czech Republic, Poland, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland were also well represented. Over two days, nearly 100 weather reports at the Silvretta Arena ski area and at the Silvretta Therme were produced with great artistic effort and reached an audience of millions.
More than 30 live broadcasts
The technical dimension of the weather summit was particularly evident in the live streams on Mount Idlib (2320m) and on Bardachegrat (2624m), where more than 30 live streams were made within two days.
