Pranksters had carved a giant male organ onto the snow, at an angle which could be monitored by the TV "Weather Panorama" cameras, shown on morning television on the national channel.
Operations manager Bernd Weitgasser took the matter with good humour: "Apparently someone has made a joke".
Weitgasser announced an immediate "amputation". He hoped "that it does not happen again."
As images of the webcam show, the unconventional illustration was removed on Friday morning by the ski patrol.
