Austrian paper "KUrier" reports that the prince went skiing with a friend, a hotel director of Lech. Both were covered by the avalanche but the friend had a ski-airbag which the prince didn't have. Thus the airbag pulled him up and he was able to alarm the rescue team. Within the next twenty minutes 4 alpine policemen, 11 mountain resuce servicemen plus helpers from the ski schools of the area arrived along with a doctor in a helicopter.

A local said that they were thankful the frantic search action of this group of rescue staff did not lead to another avalanche and that anybody who goes skiing off-slope at the moment is not only risking his own life but that of the resuce helpers as well.

It's about 200 km long. But maybe they will fly with the helicopter. THe roads in Vorlarlberg are bit of a mess right now.
Edit: NOS reported that they will go with the helicopter to Innsbruck.

All Things Royal @allthingsroyal According to @panicoffice the weather in Innsbruck is OK, so there is no reason why the plane should land somewhere else.

Just saw it on the news, it's absolutely devastating and I can't imagine what the family must be going through, I hope he'll be alright and my thoughts are with the family and especially Princess Mabel and their girls.

My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Mabel, his daughters, his mother, Queen Beatrix and the rest of the royal family. Hope he will make full recovery.

From AP

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, in comments carried by NOS radio, said he had told the queen and the prince's wife that "the whole Dutch people sympathizes with them very intensely."
"The situation is that the prince is stable, but his life not yet out of danger, and (in) the coming days, the expectation is that further prognoses will follow."
"There's nothing more (to say) than that the best doctors are there," he said. "Austria naturally has very good medical care, we are fully confident in them — but further we really just have to wait."

I wish him well, and I hope that Mabel and the girls have the support they need.

I'm not suggesting that Austria isn't safe. I'm just surprised that the Dutch government is comfortable having the head of state and several of her immediate heirs traveling out of the country all at once.

It's a family holiday, you can't really have one of those without all the family. Most, if not all, the reigning royal families holiday together out of their own country.

I just think it's a risk policy to allow the Crown Prince, his children, Prince Constantijn, and his children all board the same plane, especially when the Queen is already out of the country.

I'm not judging the safety of Austria or the will of the Crown Prince, just the riskiness of having everyone on the same plane. After the whole family was sitting on the same bus during the Queen's day attack, I'd have thought they be more careful about such things.

Events like this seem to have that effect on people.

How is the mood on the street and the coverage in the media in the Netherlands tonight?

I can easily imagine the media coverage where they have mobilized every imaginable expert to say something, - anything.
And gangs of camera crews roaming the streets asking everyone and everything what they feel.
- Or is the coverage actually dignified?

What is the word on the street? Are everyone talking about the same thing or is it a general "let's hope the best" and then quietly moving on?
