You will see them everywhere - Cattle houses in the mountains of Tirol. They are used in the summer when the cows are up in the fresh mountain air, and need shelter for the night.
In winter , you can see them at the side of the ski slopes , as the ski areas are mostly build on private ground that the farmers don't use in the cold months of the year. So when the snow covers the roofs - its a fairytale sight....You can use them to climb on and jump or slide on your butt in the fluffy snow,or simply to catch some sun rays in between two runs....
according to an article I read today in the "tirolerin" magazine , tough times are coming for the local farmers. The tendency is a decrease of this activity from 50 000 to 40 000 in the next 10 years.
