Winter 2020/2021

A turn of the year in an unusual form...

This year we in the Tyrolean Oberland spend the Christmas holidays and the turn of the year with an unusual silence. There is great regret not to be able to welcome guests this year as usual. In anticipation of the start of the season, the ski resorts open to locals from December 24, 2020.

"One valley. A thousand possibilities - in the midst of diversity" Our motto is a promise for a relaxing vacation with enough distance. With clear regulations and measures, we hope to soon be able to pamper guests in our region again.

Safe on the mountain

even away from the hustle and bustle of the pistes, there are plenty of activities in the Tyrolean Oberland.

according to the weekly programme, the hiking bus goes once a week to the Pfundser Tschey and once to the Kobel. However, masks are compulsory on the buses.

this winter the ski busses drive regularly to the ski areas:

In the public ski buses the legal mask obligation applies. If no mouth and FFP2 nose protection (mask) is available, a scarf, neckerchief or multifunctional scarf can be used. It is important that mouth and nose are covered.

The ski buses are disinfected at regular intervals. A long-lasting, floating mist of droplets is applied with special cold fogging equipment. Within one minute, 99.99% of viruses, bacteria and spores on the treated surfaces are eliminated. The active ingredient leaves no residue after use, is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic, pH-neutral and skin and eye friendly.
