COVID-19 Safety Measures

COVID-19 Safety Measures

With a view to the coming winter season and the upcoming challenges regarding the spread of COVID-19, Bergbahnen Sölden Mountain Lifts have developed a comprehensive package of preventive measures to ensure the health and safety of our guests, employees and the local population.

General informations

  • Within the scope of the existing possibilities we take measures to counteract the spread of COVID-19 in the best possible way and thus contribute to the protection of our guests and employees.
    The legal requirements are minimum requirements.
    In addition, we are constantly working on taking further effective measures.
  • At Bergbahnen Sölden, several employees are trained as COVID-19 officers, who are also highly skilled in dealing with suspicious cases.
  • Our 2 main feeder lifts to the ski area - Giggijochbahn (4,500 pers./h), Gaislachkoglbahn (3,600 pers./h) - are among the most powerful feeder lifts worldwide.
    Both lifts start their daily service already at 08.00 am.
  • The Sölden ski area extends over 430 hectares of slopes, the average available ski area per skier is about 400 m² or there are only 25 skiers per hectare.
  • None of our lifts runs longer than the critical 15 minutes. The ascents with the lifts only take between 2 and 10 minutes. These short travel times reduce the risk of infection significantly.
  • We leave it up to you to decide whether you want to enter a cabin where there are already people.
  • All our employees with customer contact wear mouth and nose protection* at all times during their working hours.
  • We recommend to guests and staff members to install the anonymous Stop Corona app of the Austrian Federal Government.
