Covid 19 Measures

Safe through the winter time!

Dear Guests!
Due to the Corona pandemic, the coming season brings some major challenges for all tourism companies worldwide.

As a Ski-School in Austria, we have also given serious thought to the current situation and have created a COVID-19 Prevention Concept. This concept, which has been specially adapted to our Ski-School operations, will not only meet the minimum official requirements in every area, but will also, in many areas even go above and beyond. Our highest priority is to optimally protect our guests and our team from the risk of infection.

Due to the constantly changing situation and the associated official guidelines and measures, we will also adapt our measures to the respective situation. We will keep you up to date, by publishing detailed information about the currently applicable rules on the Ski-School homepage and on our social-media channels.

In general, it should be noted that Filzmoos, due to its optimal geographical location at the foot of the Dachstein Massif, with no lift connection to other ski areas, is not only snow-sure, but also an ideal place to take a winter holiday, especially in Corona times with its extensive slopes. Families and in particular families with children are better off in a quiet winter sports resort than in overcrowded and turbulent ski centres.

Bögeis Winter Wonderland is centrally located in the middle of the village and can be easily reached on foot from the surrounding car parks, without the need for shuttle buses, gondolas or chair-lifts.

Since the Bögei Ski-School has one of the largest children’s practice areas (90,000 square meters) in the Salzburg region, there is also plenty of space for the 1,5 metres safe distance between our ski school children, guests and ski instructors.

Our motto for the coming winter season is “Skiing Safely with Space!”.

In general, it should be noted that skiing is an outdoor sport and therefore the risk of infection is low.

We strive to minimize the risk of contact in all areas to protect the health of all where it is possible. All personal data for any contact tracing that may be required is recorded (of course, taking into account the GDPR).

We recommend booking the courses in good time via our Online Shop (boegei.skischool.shop) in order to minimize contact and to avoid the queues in and in front of the Ski-School Office.

You can determine your children’s skiing ability with the help of our classification videos by clicking on the symbol with the question mark and then (preferably together with your children) watching the videos of the various levels. Choose the right course for you or the child in question, then you can easily book it.

We recommend booking the courses in good time via our Online Shop (boegei.skischool.shop) in order to minimize contact and to avoid the queues in and in front of the Ski-School Office.

Our tried and tested classification system is a further step in the direction of safety, since a “demo” or “trial” run is no longer necessary and long (traffic jams) standing and waiting times on the practice slope are avoided. Our meeting points are clearly marked and separated from each other by generous distances.

The collection of course cards in the office will also be switched to a new system to reduce contact risks, details will follow soon.

If, despite all the precautionary measures, you should feel ill or perhaps don’t feel 100% fit, we offer a free cancellation option for all ski courses booked online, up to 3 days before the start of the course without giving reasons.

The popular Clown Lupino Show will take place outdoors every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday as before, but we will split these performances into 2 parts and shorten them a little, taking into account the distance regulations.

Please do use mouth and nose protection in indoor areas, at the assembly points, at the Clown Lupino-Show or if the safety distance of 1.5 m is no longer possible. Hand disinfectant dispensers will be available free of charge at various locations on our premises, but please do not forget to wash your hands thoroughly with soap several times a day.

The ski races will continue to take place weekly without restriction. As before, the start intervals are continuously coordinated and optimized via radio in order to largely avoid any congestion in the start and finish area.

All prize-giving ceremonies will take place outdoors and will be staggered as before. (always 2 groups within 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the group size, in compliance with the distance and hygiene rules))

The visits to the animals on Bobo’s Farm will only take place in small groups, which means that there will only ever be one ski group within our stables.

All of our employees have been instructed in our Covid prevention concept and also trained in behavioral measures to protect their own health and that of the guests. For the safety of all of us, Covid Safety-Monitors staff-members are permanently present on the site of the Bögei Winterwelt.

In order to protect our little guests, we have decided with a heavy heart to no longer offer supervised lunch care with our Ski-Instructors.

However, we recommend that you make reservations for you and your children in the surrounding restaurants, huts and hotels in good time, especially during the holiday season.
