Safely into winter in Obereggen
On 27 November Obereggen will open with a night-time event, when the Ochsenweide gondola lift begins running at 7 p.m. Relax as you take your skis, snowboard or toboggan upwards in Obereggen until 11 April 2021– all in complete safety!
All the lift facilities – 14 chairlifts, 2 ski lifts and 2 gondola lifts – are ready to go and all set to ensure our visitors and our staff can all enjoy the highest degree of safety alongside their usual fun. The positive experiences of the summer season were a vital starting point, allowing us to put together a well-coordinated package of measures for the upcoming season.
The safe and smooth functioning of the lifts naturally also requires the help and cooperation of our visitors. Obereggen too is looking forward to the winter with some 50 kilometres of perfectly groomed slopes and carefree days surrounded by nature – all in the heart of the Dolomites.
Capacities for the transport of people on our lifts are currently not limited, either on the chairlifts or in the gondola lifts.
Holders of season passes for the Dolomiti Superski area and the “Val di Fiemme/Obereggen” valley are covered by a guarantee for the coming winter season: should all lifts once more have to be shut owing to COVID-19, a partial reimbursement of season passes may be requested. Unused days of multi-day tickets will also be refunded. The reimbursement procedures will be announced on our website soon.
Mouth and nose protection must be worn when using all cable cars, in the ski-pass office and in all enclosed spaces. Mouth and nose protection must also be worn whenever the required distancing cannot be observed.
The required safety distance must be observed when boarding the lifts and when purchasing ski passes.
Passengers are of course always in the fresh air on our 14 chair lifts and the 2 drag lifts. To ensure regular ventilation of the 2 gondola lifts, the gondola windows will remain open during travel.
The carriages of the lift facilities (gondolas and seats) and all communal areas will be regularly disinfected.
Plexiglas or glas partitions have been installed between customers and sales staff at the ski pass sales points. Passes can be paid for contactlessly at all counters. As of 15 November 2020 it will also be possible to buy ski passes online (https://www.dolomitisuperski.com/de/Skipass/Preise). If you choose the pick-up option, you can pick up your ski pass around the clock with a QR code from the specially installed machine at the valley station in Obereggen. Many hotels in Obereggen and in Deutschnofen also let visitors buy their ski passes directly from the hotel reception.
As in the 2020 summer season, all staff of the lift operator, Obereggen Latemar AG, will be regularly tested for COVID-19 during winter 2020-21.
In order to minimise risks, all staff of the lift operator will regularly attend training courses and be kept updated on corona safety measures.
Hand disinfectant dispensers to permit regular disinfection of hands are provided at the entrance to the lift facilities, in front of the ticket counters, in the toilet facilities and in the restaurants up on the mountain.
Visitors will be informed of the applicable corona safety rules by means of signs, monitors at the cash desks, via the Obereggen TV channel and via instructions from our staff on site.
All staff will always wear mouth and nose protection at the lifts, in the ski huts and wherever staff and visitors might come into direct contact.
Thinking in an environmentally conscious will help us to protect nature: so please do not carelessly throw away any masks, gloves or other material and instead dispose of them in the waste bins provided. As the landscape and natural world around the Latemar massif are not only exceptionally beautiful, but also merit protection, Obereggen has for many years focused on a sustainable, certified environmental management system that meets the international ISO 14001 standard.
