With close to a dozen World Cup events held in this small country every winter -- from alpine skiing to ski jumping and nordic combined -- the army has often been recruited to clear snow and prepare courses.
At Monday's glitzy opening ceremony in Schladming -- which featured ski acrobatics, lederhosen-clad dancers and the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger -- a small troupe of soldiers marched forward to raise the Austrian and International Ski Federation flags. Austrians voted in a referendum on January 20 to maintain the current conscription system rather than switch to a professional, more specialised army, bucking a European trend since the end of the Cold War of scrapping the draft.
