Corona safety measures for the ski operation in Gastein in Ski amadé

From a current perspective, there is nothing to prevent largely unrestricted ski operation in winter 2020/21. Ski amadé and the cable car companies in Gastein will take all necessary measures to ensure that our guests can experience Austria's greatest skiing pleasure with the greatest possible safety.

For closed gondolas and chairlifts there is a capacity restriction of 50%. An exception is the so-called "family gondola" (family members, friends) where more people are allowed.
Of course, the neuralgic points and gondolas are disinfected at regular intervals. Currently, the wearing of an FFP 2 mask is obligatory: when queuing and in all lift facilities. This does not apply to children up to the age of 14.


Our personal tips: Start and ski anticyclically: Start the skiing day at 09.00 or 11.00 a.m., a short lunch break at 11.30 or 2.00 p.m., because the most frequented skiing area is always from 10.00 to 12.00 a.m.

Ski huts:
Most of the huts like our favourite, the Weitmoser Schlossalm, will switch to service,  the self-service area will be eliminated. The terrace area will generally be used more: In good weather, for example, barbecues will be held on the terrace of the Weitmoser Schlossalm. However, if you prefer to end your skiing day at the hotel - we offer you our Bismarck Skier's Lunch Buffet, which is open daily until 4 pm. In addition, this year we offer you our newly designed cosy Winter Wonderland Bismarck Terrace. Enjoy on our newly- designed and romantic illuminated Bismarck-terrace  with comfortable rugs, candles, lights and lounge music. The perfect place for the last “break of the skiing day” or just to relax and dream.

Do I have to wear a face mask on the slopes?
On the slopes a face mask is not absolutely necessary.
Currently, the wearing of an FFP 2 mask is obligatory: when queuing and in all lift facilities. This does not apply to children up to the age of 14.
Where in the ski resort will disinfectant be available?

Will the lift passes be reimbursed in the case of a Corona lockdown?
Ski amadé lift passes will be reimbursed (depending upon usage) in the case of a Corona lockdown.
How will guests be informed about the Corona safety regulations on-site?
Guests will be made aware of the current Corona safety regulations by means of signs and loudspeaker announcements on site.
Which measures must the lift employees who are in direct contact with the public adhere to?
All employees, who come into direct contact with customers, will wear a face mask or will be separated from the guests with a suitable safety measure (e.g. Plexiglass).
Is there a person responsible for Corona measures at every lift company?
The cable car companies each have one employee who is responsible for planning and implementing measures against Corona.


Five ski resorts in one place

Austria’s largest ski resort - Ski amadé - is not only big but also excellent. Each of the five participating ski resorts is super in and of itself - but together, Ski amadé offers so much more for your skiing holidays.

Just one ticket gives you access to 270 state-of-the-art lifts and 860 km of pistes with runs of all levels of difficulty. In no other region in the Alps will you find such an abundance of offers, all bundled in one single spot. The excellent guarantee of snow, as well as the dense network of ski service points, ski hire centres and ski schools give families on skiing holidays at the Hotel Bismarck a rush of adrenaline.

Unlimited skiing fun

Every winter, 1,400 staff members of the cable car companies and more than 4,500 snowmaking systems ensure that the slopes are always perfectly prepared and the lifts are running smoothly. Ski amadé can always guarantee visitors a perfect skiing holiday by constantly investing in and improving the quality of the slopes, snow security and convenience.

In the end, the best thing about Ski amadé is not the impressive facts and figures, but the total package for your skiing holiday: incredible views of the snowy mountains, sunny days on the ski slopes, countless events, genuine hospitality and cosiness at the chalets.
