In order to guarantee the safety of all summer athletes, the following regulations currently apply to the lifts:

  • A FFP2 mask has to be worn permanent in all cable cars and chair lifts with a weather protection hood by everybody from the age of 6.
  • Moreover, there is a permanent compulsory use of FFP2 mask in all enclosed rooms like buildings, toilets, in all public transport and while queuing in enclosed buildings.
  • Children from the age of 6 to the age of 14 are allowed to wear a close-fitting mechanical protective device (MNS) that covers the mouth and nose area instead of the mask.
