Vienna – A number of Austrian ski areas want to start their lifts soon despite the lockdown. The Austrian news agency APA reported on Tuesday that the Austrian news agency APA reported “the slopes are free” in Kitzbühel as soon as the snow conditions permit. In Axamer Lizum near Innsbruck, skiing will start on December 3rd with a week’s delay.
The next steps on the Arlberg had not yet been determined. Ischgl in Tyrol also wants to advise on how to deal with the situation. In Salzburg, larger ski areas plan the start of the season even in lockdown if the snow conditions allow. Security measures against the coronavirus apply everywhere.
The Ministry of Health in Vienna pointed out on Tuesday that ski areas with a 2G certificate (vaccinated, recovered) can also be visited during the Austrian lockdown, which initially applies until December 12th. All restaurants are closed, however, and hotels are not allowed to be entered for tourist purposes. In addition, the entry regulations are still valid, according to which you have to be vaccinated or recovered or have a negative PCR test. (dpa)
