Safe skiing with our skishools

Together trough this winter

Just like the hotels and restaurants, the ski schools in the Hochkönig region have done everything in their power to develop a top safety concept for ski school lessons in winter 2020/21. Top trained personnel, the equalization of meeting points and course offerings as well as strict hygiene measures are part of this concept.

The motto is: "Together safely through the winter".

Upon entering public places people are required to keep at least one metre apart if they do not live in the same household, from other groups and between parents and other parents. In the front office area of the ski schools, suitable room separation will be implemented, (e.g. Plexiglass).

A face mask must be worn if the minimum distance of one metre cannot be upheld, e.g. for absolutely necessary assistance during snow sports lessons or for assistance after falls (to get up etc.).

If possible, courses should be booked online. Please inform yourself on your chosen ski schools’ website or via telephone with regards to the respective use.

In order to make the social distancing rule (1 metre distance) simpler, manageable groups will be selected and this from the very start. Groups should then be kept as they are as best as possible.

The meeting places will be chosen to be as spacious as possible. Course schedules will be planned as far as possible in advance to avoid large group gatherings.

Ski schools and other related rooms, such as warming-up rooms, kindergartens and restaurants, as well as teaching aids and tools, toys etc. will be disinfected more times a day, depending upon usage.

Snow sports instructors who arrive from abroad must present a negative SARS-COV2 test to the ski school owner upon arrival. Regular SARS-COV2 testing of snow sport instructors and staff who have contact with ski school guests is planned.

The supervision of children will be possible under special hygienic conditions. More detailed information regarding this is currently being worked out and you will be able to find it here.

Please inform yourself in advance with regards to the specific measure on the respective website of the ski schools. In any case, there will be hygienic measures fitting to the age of the children, keeping the social distance, the use of a face mask if it falls short of this, and a lot of time under supervision and moving around outside, whilst maintaining all the necessary hygienic measures.
