SAFE Together

The Covid 19 regulations for the winter season 2021/22


The days are getting shorter and shorter and winter is not far away. We are already looking forward to spending a great day on the ski slopes with you. We are building on the regulations of the Austrian Federal Government for a safe winter tourism, which provides measures for the protection of all guests and employees. Strict rules ensure safe hospitality.


LOCKDOWN: 22.11. - 12.12.2021

A general lockdown is imposed throughout Austria from 22 November 2021. This is expected to last until 12 December. 

Gastronomy, accommodation, retail etc. are closed until this day. Afterwards, the lockdown will continue to apply to unvaccinated/non-recovered people (analogous to the 2G regulation in effect since 8 November) - furthermore, a general Corona vaccination obligation will be introduced in Austria as of 1 February 2022.


The lift operation is excluded from the lockdown regulations and is planned as follows:

Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn

  • 04.12.2021 planned start of season
  • as of 17.12.2021 lift operation with ski connections between Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn
  • the 2G-rule and a FFP2 mask requirement in the gondolas applies --> code of conduct


As of 13.12.2021

A general 2G-regulation applies throughout Austria to the greatest possible extent! Basic information and definition of the 2G rule:

  • The 2G-regulation is fulfilled by anyone who has been vaccinated ("geimpft") or has recovered ("genesen") and can prove this accordingly (green pass, etc.)
  • Vaccination certificates are generally valid for 270 days from the date of full immunisation, recovery certificates or official segregation notices for 180 days. The expired infection must have been proven by molecular biology.
  • Transitional solution for partially vaccinated persons: For persons who have only received a partial vaccination, proof of the first vaccination in conjunction with a negative PCR test (max. 72 hours old) is valid as proof until 6.12.2021.
  • Exception for people who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons: In this case, a medical certificate in combination with a negative PCR test (max. 72 hours old) is considered as proof.
  • A pure antibody test without proof of vaccination or infection is not considered 2G proof.
  • Children up to the age of 12 do not have to provide their own proof.
  • Children over the age of 12 must provide their own proof (for Austrian school children, the Ninja pass is accepted as proof up to the 9th grade) - from the end of the ninth grade (i.e. generally at the age of 15), 2G proof must be provided.
In which areas does the 2G rule apply?

The 2G regulation applies in practically all areas relevant to tourism, such as accommodation, gastronomy and ski lifts.


Where is there still a FFP2 mask obligation?
  • An FFP2 mask must be worn everywhere where no 2G proof is prescribed. This applies to customer areas in all kinds of shops, public transport and museums.
  • Conversely, the FFP2 mask requirement does not apply everywhere where only people with -G evidence come into contact with each other.
  • In ski lifts there is an FFP2 mask obligation in addition to the 2G rule.

Status: 22 November 2021. This page will be updated regularly.
