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 2020/21, 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.
Currently the following protective measures will apply in Austria
Accommodation facilities may currently only be used for professional purposes until at least April 2021.
Catering establishments may offer food for collection from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., direct consumption in the catering establishment is not permitted. The delivery of food is possible around the clock.
Ski lifts & cable cars
Since 24 December 2020 ski lifts and cable cars may open (for day guests).
Since 15 February 2021, all persons using the ski slopes during operating hours must carry along a negative Covid test result (PCR or antigen) no more than 48 hours old. Persons who were infected with the coronavirus in the past six months do not need it - but instead need a doctor's confirmation. Children under the age of ten are exempt from obligations under the regulation.

Chill-Out instead of Après-Ski
Après-Ski on a large scale is hardly known in the Pitztal anyway. This year we are therefore focusing on a generous amount of space and relaxing chill-out music to underline the peace and quiet after skiing.
The ski schools also take appropriate measures: Strict distance regulations apply here as well. In offices or meeting places, larger group formations are to be avoided, and childcare is to take place exclusively outdoors. Where it is not possible to keep the distance, a mouth and nose protector must be worn. Pre-booking is requested by both the ski schools and the ski rental companies.
For easy contact tracing all guests & businesses in Pitztal can use the digital guestbook of MTMS free of charge.
All companies in Pitztal adhere to the legally prescribed hygiene measures:
- The employees wear obligatory mouth and nose protection.
- For guests it is likewise obligating when entering generally accessible internal areas (Buffet, stairway etc.) to wear a mouth nose protection.
- Please keep a minimum distance to your fellow vacationers - except to persons from the common household or fellow travelers from the common accommodation unit.
- Disinfection facilities are available in the establishments.
