Covid-19 measures

For a relaxing and safe togetherness in the winter season 2021/22

Snow sports give you a feeling of freedom, and at the same time moving in the fresh air is healthy for body and soul. The danger of infection in the fresh air is also much lower.

In order to ensure a relaxing and safe togetherness in the coming winter season 2021/22, we have worked out comprehensive measures regarding Covid-19 in cooperation with the Pitztal mountain railways. The protection and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority.

In general, we assume that safety distances are maintained and that mouth and nose protection is worn where keeping a distance is difficult. In addition there are further measures such as additional personnel or "gondola butlers" at the entrance and exit areas of the lifts, personnel guidance systems and regular surface disinfection.


Current information at a glance

Catering, accommodation and leisure businesses

  • Prerequisite is a 2G proof
  • FFP-2 mask requirement indoor: Applies to guests as soon as they get up from the table. In accommodation when entering generally accessible areas. Operators and employees must also wear an FFP-2 mask indoors when coming into contact with customers.
  • Wearing an FFP2 mask is compulsory in all closed rooms and on public transport. From 11 January 2022 a mask is also required outdoor, if a 2-meter distance cannot be maintained (e.g. queues, gatherings,...).
  • The closing time is set at 10 p.m. and the registration requirement for guests must be observed - unfortunately, the opening of night catering can only take place after January 10, 2022.
  • No consumption while standing, food and drinks only at the serving place
  • Vaccination certificates (green passport) are valid for 270 days from the date of full immunization. After that, another vaccination is necessary for a valid certificate.
  • Vaccines with only one vaccination (Johnson & Johnson/ Janssen) are valid from the 22nd day after vaccination for a total of 270 days from the day of vaccination. By January 3, 2022, revaccination is required here, otherwise the 2G status no longer applies - regardless of the date of the first vaccination.

Regulations for children

Here there is a difference for children under 12 years and between 12 and 15 years.

  • When entering Tyrol, the 2.5 G rule applies from the 12th birthday (vaccinated, recovered or PCR test). Afterwards, this age group must comply with the 2G rule in the same way as all adults.
  • For the age group 12-15 (school age !) the Holiday Ninja Pass is also valid as a 2G proof. All info about the Holiday Ninja Pass
  • Adolescents from the end of compulsory schooling are subject to the same 2G requirements as adults.
  • Children under the age of 12 do not need a 2G certificate in Austria.

Entry rules

In order to slow down the global spread of the Omikron variant, the entry rules to Austria will be tightened. A valid 2-G proof and the additional PCR-testing for entries from all countries allows to maintain the travel traffic.

  • 2G+ (Vaccinated or recovered and PCR-tested) for entry from all states
  • Booster vaccination exempts from PCR testing

Individuals without PCR testing or booster vaccination are subject to registration and must maintain home quarantine until a negative PCR test result is submitted.

Holiday Ninja Pass in the course of entry
As a general rule, children and young people aged 12 and over require a negative PCR test on entry. Children and young people of compulsory school age who were born after 31 August 2006 can also use the Holiday Ninja Pass in the course of entry. This means that you print out the Holiday Ninja Passport before your arrival and enter the first negative test result. As the Holiday Ninja Passport provides for three tests per week (2x PCR, 1x antigen), there is the theoretical possibility to start the test series with an antigen test. However, please keep in mind that a PCR test must be done immediately on site, as the antigen test is only valid for 48 hours and the test series may not be interrupted during the stay. It may take 24 hours before a PCR test result is available.
