Enjoy a safe holiday with the Lermoos Ski School
The current situation & COVID-19 measures
The COVID-19 situation affects all of us!
We are approaching the winter of 2020/21 with caution and respect!
Health and safety are our highest priorities here at the Lermoos Ski School, and this applies equally to our guests and staff. In order to protect the health of our guests and staff while continuing to offer our range of ski lessons and services, we have been obliged to implement several protective measures.
These precautions consist of slight adjustments to the current official regulations to suit our particular situation and the stipulations of our partner organisations – especially the mountain railways – as well as adaptations devised by our interest group, health officers and doctors on site. Hygiene concepts and other measures have been developed for each individual area, and these are continuously monitored.
We can assure you that, along with our local partner organisations (including the mountain railways, sports stores, restaurants, etc.), we are operating in full compliance with all officially prescribed measures.
We are also prepared to respond quickly in the event of any changes in the rate of infections in our own region or in our main source market areas.
The risk of infection is much lower in outdoor areas
Snowsports are outdoor activities, and as result the risk of infection is much lower than in indoor spaces
At the present time, we are confident that skiing will be able to continue throughout the winter 2020/21 season in compliance with applicable regulations. We will be implementing all the necessary measures to ensure the highest possible degree of safety for our guests and our team as they enjoy everything our ski school, ski region and range of lessons have to offer!
If you are unable to travel to or stay in Lermoos due to an official travel ban (issued by the state of Tyrol, Federal Foreign Office, Austrian Economic Chamber, etc.) in response to the coronavirus, then of course you will be entitled to an immediate cancellation with no charge.
Any money already paid will be refunded if developments in the COVID-19 situation prevent you from enjoying your planned ski holiday in Lermoos.
Sporting activities in the fresh air are good for you!
We are looking forward to responsible and considerate interactions this winter season!
If you have any questions regarding the COVID-19 situation and our ski school, please contact us. We are doing our best to answer all questions as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can find out more about our current range of lesson options.
At the present time, it appears that our winter season will go ahead with the observation of all applicable regulations. We are all approaching the winter of 2020/21 with caution and respect!
Health and safety are our top priorities here at the Lermoos Ski School – and this applies equally to guests and staff.
The official regulations apply throughout the entire ski school (offices, assembly areas, staff accommodation, etc.): appropriate distancing must be observed and/or suitable face coverings worn, gatherings must be avoided, etc. Our assembly area is spacious and meeting points have been planned to provide plenty of room. Notices advise of direct routes to each meeting point. All staff have received training in COVID-19 restrictions and measures. We have also appointed our own COVID-19 officer, trained by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, who is responsible for implementing and monitoring the necessary COVID-19 regulations at the ski school.
Current regulations permit a range of multifunctional scarves, ski masks, buffs, etc. in addition to the usual face masks. It is important to ensure that the mouth and nose are completely covered so that the spread of droplets when speaking, coughing and sneezing is prevented. For children, we recommend tube scarves as they are easy to handle with gloves and helmet – but the choice of face covering is entirely yours!
We recommend you use our online booking system to secure your place and make a contactless booking and payment before you arrive. We will be happy to offer additional advice via telephone or email. If you do need to visit our office in person, please observe all the necessary COVID-19 measures.
Please note that restricted numbers apply to certain areas and facilities, so you may have to wait at times. Please respect the measures displayed on signs and posters throughout the school.
Guests must observe the maximum numbers permitted in office spaces, social distancing regulations and the requirement to wear a suitable face covering.
Please comply with all coronavirus measures currently in force: wear a face covering – keep your distance – keep your stay as short as possible.
To reduce large gatherings, only lesson participants and, if required, one companion are permitted to meet in the assembly area. Please follow the instructions posted at your meeting point and leave promptly at the end of your lesson.
The Austrian Ski Instructors Association recommends groups no larger than ten people including instructor.
At this time, we are unable to confirm whether midday childcare options will be available in the usual format. We will be able to provide more details on this as soon as the necessary legal information becomes available.
We recommend that you make arrangements to collect your children for the midday break if possible.
Guest races will be running as usual. However, participants are reminded to please observe social distancing regulations and other guidelines.
A face mask or appropriate face covering must be worn in all gondola and chairlifts, queuing areas and buses (as at October 2020)
If you are unable to travel to or stay in Lermoos due to an official travel ban (issued by the state of Tyrol, Federal Foreign Office, Austrian Economic Chamber, etc.) in response to the coronavirus, then you will of course be entitled to an immediate cancellation with no charge. Any money already paid will be refunded if developments in the COVID-19 situation prevent you from enjoying your planned ski holiday in Lermoos. Refunds owing to illness or injury will only be issued on presentation of a certificate from a local doctor, and only unused days of tuition (the balance) will be refunded.
We are doing all we can to ensure the safety of our ski school staff. In addition to correct instructions and rules of behaviour, we make provisions for good working conditions and accommodation for all employees. All staff must present a negative PCR test before commencing work, and will be regularly tested during the season.
You must call the Austrian emergency number 1450 immediately if you develop any symptoms of a COVID-19 infection during your stay (dry cough, fever, shortness of breath, etc.). The authorities will instruct you on the next steps to take (testing options, isolation, etc.), which must be followed exactly. You must also inform your host.
In case of emergency, please call the emergency number 144 immediately. When calling the emergency services, it is important to inform them that your situation involves symptoms that may indicate a COVID-19 infection. Under no circumstances should you visit a doctor privately.
