Getting through the winter safely together

This information will be updated on an ongoing basis!
(Status: 22. December 2020)


Dear Wintersport-Friends,

Big changes have developed over the last months – COVID-19 has influenced our way of life worldwide. The safety and personal health of every person are, more than ever at the forefront of our minds, including that of our lift companies. We are establishing, based on the regulations of the Austrian Federal Government, a series of measures to protect all guests and employees.


In compliance with the current valid regulations and additional safety measures, we firmly believe that you can relax and enjoy your winter days in our network, with 121 lifts, and 408 kilometres of piste with incorporated safety distance measures. In addition, there are 23 lifts operating from the valley stations ensuring a smooth ascent into the ski region of Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun.


For everyone’s safety

Please respect our COVID-19 Code of Conduct, which is continuously updated to reflect the current situation and any changes in legal or regulatory requirements.      


For the Tyrolean part of the Skicircus (Fieberbrunn) the following regulations apply since 15th February 2021:

  • All people who use the ski slopes during operating hours must have a negative Covid test result with them, which is not older than 48 hours old (PCR or antigen). Except for ski tourers.
  • People who have been infected with the coronavirus in the past six months do not need a test- but instead a doctor's certificate.
  • Children under the age of 10 are exempt from the obligations
  • Spot checks are carried out by the health authority. The cable cars are not obliged to check that guests are carrying a negative Covid test result. The lift employees further on check that skiers are wearing an FFP2 mask and keep distance (at least 2 meters).


What we do for you!
