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.
Currently there is no limit in number of guests in the ski areas of Ski amadé.
It is highly recommended to buy a ticket in advance in the Ski amadé Online Ticket Shop or top up the Friends Card or the existing KeyCard. This way you can already safely store your ticket in your pocket and it also helps the lift companies to better plan and assess the volume (number of visitors).
Possible restrictions may temporarily occur in individual ski areas due to full parking spaces.
On the slopes a face mask is not necessary.
All cable cars and lifts will be aired as best as possible – Please ensure you air adequately during your ride (open windows, open the weather protection cover, etc.)
Disinfection possibilities are in the toilet facilities, at the ticket office area and in the ski depots.
All employees, who come into direct contact with customers, will wear a face mask or will be separated from the guests with a suitable safety measure (e.g. Plexiglass).
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.
Guests will be made aware of the current Corona safety regulations by means of signs and loudspeaker announcements on site.
All lift facilities (cable cars, chairlifts,…) will be regularly disinfected.
All cable cars are public forms of transport and are subject to the same regulations.
The employees of the cable car companies are trained or instructed in Corona safety measures according to uniform guidelines and regulations.
All employees of the lift companies will be tested for Covid-19 at the beginning of the winter season or when they are hired and then will undergo daily health checks (checking temperature, checking for symptoms). If there is any suspicion, then tests will be carried out immediately and the employees are then to immediately isolate from the company/organisation.
The cable car companies each have one employee who is responsible for planning and implementing measures against Corona.
By using the Contact Tracing APP 'STOP CORONA' of the Austrian Red Cross you are helping to tackle to spread of the Corona virus – it is recommended that you use this.
Maintain a minimum distance of one metre in the following areas: When queuing at the ticket offices, when queuing at the lift stations and ski bus stops, in all buildings accessible to the public. This regulation also applies if a face mask is being worn.
If, due to the number of passengers, and during boarding and leaving the lifts, and in the gondolas and lifts themselves, it is not possible to maintain a distance of at least one metre, this rule can be deviated from in exceptional cases if a face mask is being worn. Wearing a face mask is mandatory in any case.
Top up an existing lift pass (KeyCard) online at the ticket shop using the 16-digit data carrier number on the back.
Order your lift pass at the online ticket shop and select the pick up option. Use the QR code to pick up the ticket at the ticket machine (or at the cash desk).
Register to become part of the new my Ski amadé Friends Club and receive, besides many other benefits on holiday packages or partner company offers, a personal Friends Card, which can be used as a lift pass and can always be topped up contactless.
If you order your lift pass at the online ticket shop via postal delivery, then you will automatically receive it through the post to your address.
There won’t be any Après ski as it used to be. There will be no consumption of food and drinks in the immediate vicinity of the issuing point and consumption will only be allowed whilst seated. Background music will be reduced to an easy listening volume.
Upon entering public places people are required to keep at least one metre apart if they do not live in the same household, from other groups and between parents and other parents. In the front office area of the ski schools, suitable room separation will be implemented, (e.g. Plexiglass).
A face mask must be worn if the minimum distance of one metre cannot be upheld, e.g. for absolutely necessary assistance during snow sports lessons or for assistance after falls (to get up etc.).
Registration of the ski school guests in accordance with the data protection regulations is required.
If possible, courses should be booked online. Please inform yourself on your chosen ski schools’ website or via telephone with regards to the respective use.
In order to make the social distancing rule (1 metre distance) simpler, manageable groups will be selected and this from the very start. Groups should then be kept as they are as best as possible.
The meeting places will be chosen to be as spacious as possible. Course schedules will be planned as far as possible in advance to avoid large group gatherings.
When using cable cars, the regulations of the cable cars must be observed. Please observe the signs and loudspeaker announcements on site.
Employees of the ski schools are trained and instructed in Corona safety measures according to uniform guidelines and regulations.
Ski schools and other related rooms, such as warming-up rooms, kindergartens and restaurants, as well as teaching aids and tools, toys etc. will be disinfected more times a day, depending upon usage.
At the children’s adventure world, toddlers are taught – this means keeping the social distance is not possible. Therefore, the snow sports instructors will wear a face mask, which is suitable for snow sports in order to be able to implement safety measures as quickly as possible.
Snow sports instructors who arrive from abroad must present a negative SARS-COV2 test to the ski school owner upon arrival. Regular SARS-COV2 testing of snow sport instructors and staff who have contact with ski school guests is planned.
The supervision of children will be possible under special hygienic conditions. More detailed information regarding this is currently being worked out and you will be able to find it here.
Please inform yourself in advance with regards to the specific measure on the respective website of the ski schools. In any case, there will be hygienic measures fitting to the age of the children, keeping the social distance, the use of a face mask if it falls short of this, and a lot of time under supervision and moving around outside, whilst maintaining all the necessary hygienic measures.
