Safe on the ArlBerg 2021/22

Unique skiing pleasure paired with the highest possible level of safety – this what Ski Arlberg wants to achieve in the 2021/22 skiing season, which will start on December 13, 2020 due to the current conditions!

On this basis, the following information can be given with our current knowledge in this context:

  • “Geimpft or Genesen”, the 2Gs – vaccinated or recovered – as an entry requirement (except for children up to the age of 12): When purchasing a ski pass or before entering the skiing area, a 2G certificate valid for the period of validity of the ski pass must be presented in Latin script in German or English.
    PLEASE NOTE: The corresponding rules (e.g. period of validity) in the respective country of origin may differ from the national Austrian rules applicable in this respect! The currently applicable rules can always be viewed at https://www.sozialministerium.at/en/Coronavirus/Information-in-English.html 
    and www.sozialministerium.at/dam/jcr:fd82a85f-d5a5-49a5-b94b-19cc66558b77/20211107_Coronavirus_Aktuelle_Maßnahmen_FAQ_zu_den_Stufen_2_3_und_4.pdf.
  • The ski pass is activated for the maximum period of validity of the respective 2G certificate. Ski passes that have a longer validity period than the respective 2G certificate can of course be reactivated at a ski pass ticket office with a newly valid 2G certificate after the 2G certificate has expired. Further activation options (online at www.skiarlberg.at and at the corresponding information points at many valley stations in the skiing area, for a detailed map please also visit www.skiarlberg.at) are in development. In cable car/lift buildings and cable car/lift entrance areas there will be information points and signs providing information about the COVID-19 safeguards. Sufficient hand disinfection facilities will also be available.
  • Skiers must carry the 2G certificate with them for the duration of their stay in the skiing area and present it during random checks.
  • Face masks or coverings (FFP2 mask without exhalation valve) must be worn in all buildings (entrance, exit, cashier’s office, toilets, etc.) and on all cable car/lift journeys with enclosed means of transport (chair lifts with weather protection, gondola lifts etc.). Only children up to the age of six are exempt from this regulation; persons up to the age of 14 can also use a conventional mouth/nose protection instead of the FFP2 mask. You are requested to bring your own FFP2 mask without exhalation valve with you.
  • In cable car/lift buildings and cable car/lift entrance areas there will be information points and signs providing information about the COVID-19 safeguards and sufficient hand disinfection facilities will also be available.
  • When the lifts are enclosed, the windows will be permanently open to ensure adequate ventilation.
  • All cable car cabins, WC facilities, ticket offices and other similar facilities are cleaned and disinfected regularly.
  • An internet ski pass ticket office has been set up at www.skiarlberg.at. The ski passes purchased online at www.skiarlberg.at can either be booked on to existing Ski Arlberg chip cards or redeemed on site at pick-up boxes and vending machines at the following locations: Nassereinbahn, Rendlbahn, St. Christoph and Rauz as well as Trittkopfbahn, Seekopfbahn, Hexenbodenbahn, Rüfikopfbahn, Schlosskopfbahn, Zugerbergbahn as well as Saloberjet and Jägeralp-Express. A ski pass ticket office has also been set up at www.starjack.at. Ski passes purchased online must also be activated with a valid 2G certificate (ski pass ticket office; in preparation: online and at information points in the skiing area).
  • Day-trippers can (also) become members of the Golden Moments Club and use the direct-to-lift system and also obtain the Golden Moments Club Card online (www.goldenmoments.ski). This ski pass must also be activated with a valid 2G certificate (ski pass ticket offices; in preparation: online and at information points in the skiing area).
  • Contactless payment (including with most smartphone payment systems) at the ski pass ticket offices is possible and recommended.
  • With the Ski Arlberg App, helpful information about the skiing area is sent when applicable with push messages. We therefore also recommend using this APP: www.skiarlberg.at/de/Ski-Arlberg/Ski-Arlberg-App

Your contribution to safety on the slopes:

  • Please keep a sufficient distance away from people you do not know.
  • In cable car cabins please leave the ventilation windows open.
  • Please observe the general hygiene guidelines (especially regarding sneezing, coughing and blowing your nose).
  • Please wash your hands regularly and use the disinfectant dispensers at the cable car/lift buildings, at the cable car/lift access points and in the mountain restaurants.
  • Please do not leave used handkerchiefs, tissues or masks in the cable car cabins.
  • Please follow the recommendations and instructions at the information points, on the signs and information channels as well as those of the cable car staff.
  • Please use cashless payment options whenever possible.
  • If you have symptoms that indicate a COVID-19 infection, please stay at home or in your accommodation and contact your accommodation provider immediately.
  • Please act responsibly – also by avoiding the mountain restaurants and heavily frequented cable car facilities during peak hours.

We will naturally continue to evaluate current conditions and immediately adjust our regulations in the Ski Arlberg skiing area accordingly in line with the latest developments, new legal and official requirements etc. You can read more about applicable rules and regulations at www.skiarlberg.at, at the information points and on the signs.

And by the way – skiing as an outdoor sport in general and the Ski Arlberg skiing area in particular also offer numerous advantages in the coming winter:

  • Ski Arlberg is the largest connected skiing region in Austria and one of the five largest in the world!
  • Ski Arlberg has 88 cable railways and lifts, 70 of which have open means of transportation and none of which has a travel time of more than 10 minutes!
  • Ski Arlberg has more than 300 km of ski runs on an area of more than 750 hectares, which is equivalent to the distance from the Arlberg almost up to Stuttgart! It also has more than 200 km of high alpine deep-snow runs!
  • Every region of Ski Arlberg has not only one, but numerous transport facilities to the skiing area and therefore also a large number of downhill runs.
  • Every region of Ski Arlberg also has many ski pass ticket offices at the numerous transport facilities.
  • From 5 February Ski Arlberg will be extending the lift operating hours and again from 27 March 2022 so that skiers can take advantage of the longer daylight hours for more skiing pleasure.
