Corona safety measures


Currently, our ski resorts are closed until the 23rd of December due to the governmental Covid-19 regulations. As soon as we have more detailed information about the reopening of the ski areas, you will find it here. However, this still remains the same: Skiing is an outdoor sport and it has been proved that it is very beneficial for your health.

Currently, all accommodation facilities, restaurants and bars are closed until the 6th of January due to the governmental Covid-19 regulations.

You are outdoors in the fresh mountain air, stocking up on vitamin D and moving a lot. The upcoming winter will be a little bit different, but one thing is for sure: Ski amadé and the ski resorts will enforce all necessary measures so that as soon as we can reopen, you can experience Austria’s greatest ski paradise in the safest possible way. Additionally, we ask you kindly to respect our COVID-19 regulations, so that we can be safe together.

For now, you can find out how skiing will take place in winter 20/21. We hope to be able to welcome you back as soon as possible.

Disinfection possibilities are in the toilet facilities, at the ticket office area and in the ski depots.

How many people will be allowed to travel in a cable car or on a chairlift at any one time?

For closed or coverable means of transport (gondolas, cable cars, coverable chairlifts), these can only be filled to a capacity of 50% (10-seater gondola = 5 people/gondola, coverable 6-seater chairlift = 3 people/chairlift, etc.), with the exception of people living in the same household.

How will guests be informed about the Corona safety regulations on-site?
