Experience the mountains together with distance and your own responsibility

Dear guests of the Kaunertal glacier and nature park region.

We are nature lovers and know about the therapeutic effects of staying in nature. The safety of our guests in times of COVID-19 is still a key issue for us.

In times of Corona, everyone can do their part to prevent or contain the spread of the virus. As a mountain railway operator, we have drawn up guidelines for ourselves and our guests in accordance with the current state of knowledge and official requirements, in order to enable the most carefree natural experience in our mountains. We ask all guests in our region to observe them and deal with them on their own responsibility.

Your team from the Kaunertal Glacier & Winterberg Fendels

This page is updated regularly and adapted to the current official requirements.

FAQs

Mouth and nose protection must be worn in all gondolas, in the waiting areas of the lifts, in the ski bus and in the entire restaurant area (except at the seat / table). Exceptions are children up to the age of 6 or people who cannot be expected to do so for health reasons. In addition to the conventional mouth and nose protection masks, multifunctional towels, ski masks, bandanas, buffs, etc. are also used as mouth and nose protection. It is important that the mouth and nose are completely covered. Mouth and nose protection is available on request at the cash registers and lift stations

An FFP2 mask is only only mandatory in closed vehicles (cable cars, chairlift with bubble) and in closed waiting areas.
As before, it is mandatory to wear a face mask at chairlifts without a bubble and at drag lifts.

There are floor markings in all waiting areas by the lifts or in the restaurant. In terms of keeping your distance, personal responsibility also plays a major role.
If a minimum distance cannot be maintained, we recommend wearing mouth and nose protection. This is already mandatory in the lift stations and gondolas.

Mask requirements apply in the waiting areas and in the lanes. The mouth and nose protection must be worn during the entire waiting and driving time.

Through visitor guidance and guidance systems, groups of people standing closely together are avoided as far as possible in the waiting areas.

The cable car cabins, toilet facilities and first aid stations are disinfected daily with cold foggers.

All cable car employees have a daily fever control before starting work.

You can buy the ski ticket either via our online shop, directly at the hotel or while sitting in your own car at the toll station.
If possible, we recommend that you settle the bill contactlessly by card.

Ski training on the Kaunertal Glacier is also possible during COVID-19.
In order to avoid large crowds, we ask you to note the following:

  • In order to equalize the peak times at the coaching meeting, this will take place in the future from 10:00 to 12:00 in the operations manager’s office.
  • In order to avoid the rush hour in the restaurant, we ask you to adjust the meal times.
  • Please only store the backpacks and equipment in the car or in the wooden huts.

Here at the Kaunertal Glacier and Winterberg Fendels, the transport capacities are significantly larger than the number of guest beds (approx. 1,600). That is why ALL guests find plenty of space with us and do not have to accept long waiting times at the lifts.

Another advantage is that you can travel directly to the slopes by car.
