skiers

to take the

gondola up

the mountain and then back down on two boards.

The start of the

ski season in Tyrol

, it looks like every other year.

But that is exactly what is causing heated emotions online.

Strict

distance and hygiene rules

actually apply

.

Ultimately

, the ski lifts play a major role

for the

Austrian tourism industry

.

In addition to

measures

such as disinfected gondolas, multifunctional scarves for the lift pass and guest login via QR code, strict

distance rules and mask requirements are intended to make skiing holidays

as tasty and as safe as possible for guests.

“Winter sports areas like Ischgl have

become

synonymous with the

pandemic

*

in the course of reporting

.

Of course, this does not correspond to reality, but nevertheless many people have reservations about traveling to these areas.

We take that very seriously, ”emphasized the

director of the

St. Anton am Arlberg

tourism association

, Martin Ebster, to the

dpa.

In general, significantly

stricter rules

apply in Austria with the increasing number of infections *

.

For example, people from different households have to keep a distance of one meter on the street.

Pictures and videos, for example from the

Kaunertal

or

Hintertux glaciers,

are currently circulating on the internet and speak a different language.

Numerous

skiers

can be seen

in huge lines

without a mask

.

Distances

are also not recognizable.

Many users find this

idiotic

” and

get upset

: “And the rest of us should barricade ourselves so that it works?

Has everyone gone mad? "

Many see a second Ischgl coming: “They just don't get it!”.

Employees of the cable cars on the

Kaunertal Glacier

told the

world

that they had been taken by surprise by the crowd.

"Because the Germans

are absent

because of the

travel warning

*, we didn't expect so many people."

Unfortunately, you ca

n't

see the

floor markings in the

Twitter video

, and announcements in several languages ​​refer to the

safety measures

, according to Hintertux.

Rising corona numbers in Austria: can ski lifts stay open?

At the same time, the Foreign Office in Berlin has already classified five federal states in Austria as risk areas, including ski strongholds such as Tyrol.

The Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz also warned at the beginning of the week: "The 

ultimate measure is a second lockdown".

Whether and how the ski lifts can stay open depends heavily on the increasing number of infections.
