The evening before 'three kings' the so called Rauriser 'beak raven' wander through the village and spread their turmoil. It is an old tradition, with their call "ga, ga, ga" the ravens are disturbing the households at homes and in après ski bars and slope restaurants. When they find no dust or dirt (something on which the locals are very alert) they are satisfied and move on quietly. Their creatively designed masks, in particular the lively beak and grim instruments like the large scissors are meant to cut off the hands and feet of the poor inhabitant of homes not found clean. •
