Health as the top priority!
Caution protects us all - Corona measures of the Ski School Arlberg Winter 20-21
In preparation for the coming winter season, the Austrian Ski School Association, together with Ms. Univ. Prof. Cornelia Lass-Flörl (Director, Institute of Hygiene and Medical Microbiology at the University of Innsbruck) has developed a comprehensive safety concept with regard to Covid-19.
Since nobody spends as much time with the ski school guests as our snow sports instructors, it is our top priority to ensure the health and safety of our guests and employees. Therefore, it is essential that our ski school staff are made aware of the challenges the approaching winter season will bring.
For this reason, we will take all necessary measures and precautions during the coming winter season to guarantee the best possible protection for our guests and employees.
These measures are subject to constant evaluation and adaptation in coordination with official requirements together with our most important local partners.
Promotes health and well-being for children and adults alike. In general, when moving outdoors, the risk of infection is much lower than indoors. We will try to minimize indoor contact wherever possible.
We request that guests make use of this possibility.
This will reduce the amount of contact with other people.
The advantages are obvious:
- permanent reachability
- convenient payment from home (VISA and MC)
- no long waiting times
- course reservations are secure
- meeting points are at the respective assembly locations
- data is saved for possible contact tracing
- all courses booked online can be cancelled up to 48 hours before the start of the course without giving a reason.
We, the Ski School Arlberg, will ensure that the minimum distance is maintained as much as possible - between the snow sports instructors as well as employees and their guests, between the snow sports instructors themselves, and between the snow sports instructors and other people. If this is not possible, the snow sports instructors and other staff of the Ski School Arlberg must wear mouth and nose protection. .
SKI SCHOOL OFFICES:
All of our sales points and receptions are screened with glass protection. Furthermore, there are disinfection dispensers in all indoor areas of the Ski School Arlberg. We ask all guests (older than 6 years) to wear mouth and nose protection in the indoor areas. When entering and leaving the above-mentioned areas, we ask you to carry out the required hand disinfection. .
In order to avoid large crowds, we will expand and separate our ski school assembly points. This measure applies to both adults and children. If the minimum distance rule (1 metre) between the snow sports instructor and the group cannot be observed, mouth and nose protection must be worn. Furthermore, we will try to select a manageable group size and keep the selected participants together.
We ask for your understanding that guests (adults and children) with symptoms of illness cannot take part in the ski course.
Due to the current situation, it is unfortunately not possible for us to offer a service for children under 3 years of age this year. (The Ski Kindergarten will remain closed.)
Our BAMBINI OFFER, for children from 3 years, is offered this year as an outdoor programme.
Our popular KIDS’ ANIMATION, with our mascot Hoppl, will take place exclusively outdoors.
The CHILDREN’S SKI RACE will continue to take place on a weekly basis. The start intervals and the subsequent prize-giving will be optimized in order to avoid any jams and crowds.
Rapid contact tracing in the event of a detected COVID-19 infection is of great importance. We always ensure that ski school guests are registered in accordance with data protection regulations.
Our motto is - HEALTHY THROUGHOUT WINTER!
For this reason, all of our employees will receive intensive training on the code of conduct regarding Covid-19. We provide good accommodation and working conditions and require all employees to submit a negative Covid-19 test before starting work. Whenever necessary, follow-up tests are planned during the winter.
