Corona update version 17-10-2020

Skiing and snowboarding takes place outdoors. They are sports where little contact is made with others. Because of this, the risk of contamination is much reduced and winter sports are actually very safe.
Together with all the other businesses in Westendorf we are busy with the preparations to make this winter as safe as possible.

Below you can find the latest updates for winter 2020/21.


  • Groups not larger than 10 persons. This means even faster learning, even more fun and even more skiing.
  • Start times may change slightly. So we can make sure that there are not to many people at the chairlift.
  • Lunch can also take place at a different time.
  • As a precaution, all ski instructors are tested once a week on COVID-19. This way we can guarantee the safety of our guests and ski instructors.
  • As little change of ski classes as possible in between.
  • Face masks/Buffs are mandatory during the lessons.
  • In order to be able to act correctly with someone who tests positive for corona, we note the details of everyone who follows our lessons. Of course, we follow the rules of data protection.

Ski schools
