WINTER IS HERE – IT’S THE START OF THE SKI-SEASON IN OBERTAUERN!
>> Take me back to Obertauern <<
We start into the winter ski season on the 3rd of December 2021!
Up-to-date information on open lifts and slopes are always available www.ski-obertauern.at!
Daily operating hours are from 09:00 AM to 04:00 PM.
Current information on the open/closed lifts are always available at https://www.ski-obertauern.at/obertauernliftonoff.php
From Friday, the red tauern round can be skied in clockwise direction.
From Saturday onwards, more lifts will go into operation and the green tauern round can also be skied in counter-clockwise direction.
In Obertauern, ski passes can be purchased directly at the lift ticket offices. It is not possible to purchase ski passes online.
In accordance with the current COVID-19 protective measures ordinance of Austria’s federal and provincial governments:
It is mandatory to wear FFP2 masks in all cableways and carriers and their respective facilities.
Certification of vaccination or recovery for transports with cable cars
We are obligated to check all guests over the age of 12 who intend to use cable cars for valid certificates (vaccination or recovery). You are only allowed to access ski lifts with a ski pass AND a valid certification of being vaccinated or having recovered.
For children between the ages of 12 and 15, the "Ninja Pass" (the Austrian corona test pass for children) applies.
Validity of the corona test pass for children (Ninja Pass) in school-free periods:
With the 5th COVID-19 emergency measure regulations entering into force, the application of the test system, on which the Ninja Pass is based, has been expanded to include school-free weeks.
The result: In school-free periods, the proof of vaccination or recovery for pupils who are subject to compulsory schooling shall be replaced by tests and test intervals equivalent to the provisions of the Ninja Pass. A negative result of a molecular biological test for SARS.CoV-2 (e.g. a PCR test) from a sample taken less than 72 hours before shall be considered as proof.
Children up to the age of 12 do not have to provide this kind of proof of vaccination or recovery.
Further details on exemptions for children and adolescents are currently being prepared by the Austrian Ministry of Health.
What are the do’s and don’ts within the ski resort?
- It is absolutely necessary to wear mouth and nose protecting FFP2 masks on the ski bus and at the ski pass sales point until further notice!
- Only go onto the slopes in good health.
- When buying your ski pass, have your valid certificate of vaccination or recovery ready at the ski pass ticket office!
- Keep a safe distance from the ski pass cash desks and in the entrance area of the cable cars.
- Refrain from shaking hands and hugging.
- Wear your FFP2 mask or mouth and nose protection in the designated areas.
- If possible, keep a sufficient distance from people you don’t know personally.
- Use the disinfectant dispensers and wash your hands regularly with soap.
- Make sure that closed rooms and cubicles are sufficiently ventilated.
- Follow the signs and instructions of the staff.
- Adhere to general hygiene rules (sneezing and coughing etiquette).
- Always act on your own responsibility.
For our guests, we also provide a free tube scarf (bandana) for every ski pass purchased in Obertauern. The big advantage of skiing is that functional and appealing mouth-nose protection is often already part of a skier's equipment, simply because of the prevalent weather conditions and temperatures.
