  • For passenger transportation in ski busses, cable cars and chair lifts, official federal rules for all public transport apply - basically meaning that wearing a mouth-nose-protection (MNP) is obligatory.
  • Good news: Multifunction-scarfs, ski masks, bandanas, buffs or tubular scarfs are accepted as MNP and perfectly suited for winter sports. If you don’t own an appropriate MNP, you can purchase a tubular scarf at our cashier’s desks at a cost price of € 1, 00.
  • All employees with direct guest contact are wearing a MNP. At our cashier’s desk there are glass screens ensuring the required distances. Wearing a MNP is obligatory in all enclosed areas, such as gondola and chairlift stations, ski rental, shops and restaurants. Kindly ensure the minimum distance of 1 meter to all persons outside of your household independently.
  • The cable cars and toilet facilities are being disinfected regularly with special cold fumigation tools. The special cold mist is spreading out long lasting and floating droplet clouds, eliminating 99, 99% of all bacteria, viruses and spores on surfaces within no time. The substance leaves no remains, is non-toxic, pH-neutral, skin- and eye-friendly and 100% bio-degradable.
  • Combined with a MNP our gondola capacities can be maintained and queueing time can be reduced.
  • Disinfectant dispensers are at your disposal at our cashier’s desks.
