Dear mountain enthusiasts!
The last months have been shaped by big changes - COVID-19 affects our lives everywhere in the world. Safety and the personal health of each individual are the highest good and the focus of attention for our cable car companies. We build on the regulations of the Austrian Federal Government, which provide for a range of measures to protect all guests and employees.
In the case of cable cars, a minimum distance of 1m must be maintained from persons who do not live in the same household. The provisions of the regulations for means of mass transport of public transport apply to cable cars in the same way. This includes the exception "...if it is not possible to maintain the distance of at least 1m due to the number of passengers and when getting on and off, this can be deviated from by way of exception".
The cable car operators must ensure that their guests always keep the required minimum distance from each other, e.g. in the queuing area in front of the turnstiles, ticket counters, WCs, etc. We comply with this requirement by means of signs, pictograms, tapes, barriers, partition grids, security personnel or other suitable measures.
The obligation to comply may be deviated from by way of exception in the entrance and exit areas of facilities (turnstiles, escalators, doors) and in the means of transport, however, because compliance with the required minimum distance of 1m is not possible due to the structural conditions.
A capacity restriction of 75% applies in closed or coverable means of transport (cable cars, cabins, chairs with weather protection bonnets).
This does not apply if only persons from the same household are travelling together.
There is a general obligation to wear an FFP2 mask in all closed areas and when travelling by cable car, as § 1 COVID-19-ÖV defines the mask as a "respiratory protection mask of protection class FFP2 (FFP2 mask) without an exhalation valve or a mask with at least an equivalent standard".
In compliance with the currently valid regulations and additional safety measures, we are firmly convinced that you can spend relaxing and safe holidays in the Zillertal by maintaining a sufficient safety distance.
Organised queuing area:
We organise the queuing areas independently of the current legal requirements in such a way that groups of people standing close together are avoided as far as possible. Please keep a 1m distance to strangers and wait in the cash desk area until the guest in front of you has left the cash desk.
For our cable car indoor areas we will install sufficient hand disinfection facilities for you.
Number of persons:
The maximum number of persons allowed in the cable car cabins and on the chairlifts with weather protection bonnets is limited to 75% of the transport capacity. This does not apply if only persons from the same household are travelling together.
All cable car cabins are regularly disinfected by us. Disinfection measures are also regularly carried out in elevator cabins, on escalators, in sanitary facilities and first aid rooms.
Cable car employees
Employees are instructed to wear an MNP in direct contact with guests for mutual protection.
Use off-peak times:
Take advantage of the off-peak times with low crowding to get up the mountain and back to your accommodation in a relaxed manner. You can also return to the valley station in off-peak times.
Please observe and follow our Covid-19 Code of Conduct and enjoy your holiday in the Zillertal mountains!
We are evaluating the situation on an on-going basis and will adapt our Code of Conduct to any changes in legal or regulatory requirements.
