I’m Yosi, a real Tyrolean Alpine chamois and I have the honour of being the official mascot for the 2016 ICG. Therefore, I would like to introduce myself to you.
I was born in the Karwendel Mountains somewhere between Innsbruck and Seefeld. I don’t know, where exactly. But it must have been near an alpine hut, because when I was a baby, my mum used to swipe some Tyrolean cheese dumplings, schlutzkrapfen or a delicious piece of apple strudel for us on special occasions.
I love the mountains. Ever since I have learned to jump and climb, I’m out and about. I’ve already seen all of Tyrol, but I still like the Nordkette best – because here you have such a breathtaking view over the roofs of Innsbruck. On nice days, you even see the twinkle of the most famous roof in Innsbruck, the Golden Roof.
