COVID-19 Safety Measures

COVID-19 Safety Measures

With a view to the coming winter season and the upcoming challenges regarding the spread of COVID-19, Bergbahnen Vent Mountain Lifts have developed a comprehensive package of preventive measures to ensure the health and safety of our guests, employees and the local population.

General informations

  • Purchasing skipasses:
    For families or groups, it is strongly recommended that one person comes to the skipass desk to buy all the skipasses. Please bring all IDs and necessary certificates of all persons with you
  • Skipasses can be purchased only if you are in possess of a valid 2 must-haves proof (vaccinated or recovered).
  • The 2 must-haves proof is required from 12 years of age and will be checked on site.
  • Between 12 and 15 years of age and without a vaccination, the Ninja Pass is valid (complete Pass showing permanent tests - test intervals as in school)If there is no Ninja Pass, only the 2 must-haves proof (vaccinated or recovered) is valid.
  • Children under the age of 12 do not need any proof.
  • In closed queuing areas (in Vent: at the skipass cash desk) and toilet facilities, FFP2 masks are mandatory. There is no FFP2 mask required in any other areas of Bergbahnen Vent.
  • A nose and mouth cover is sufficient for children under 12 years of age.
  • If guests buy the Ötztal Skipass at the Vent Mountain Lifts, the certificate is checked manually. However, if guests want to go skiing in Sölden, they still have to activate the Ötztal Skipass in Sölden by showing the 2 must-haves proof (vaccinated or recovered


Mandatory FFP2 face mask:

  • Children from the age of 6 to the age of 14 may also wear a very tight-fitting mechanical protective device that covers the entire nose and mouth area.
  • Children that still have not turned 6 do not need a face mask.

Proof of low epidemiological risk must be provided by all persons over the age of 12 by presenting one of the following proofs:



The EU-compliant vaccination certificate, the yellow vaccination pass, a vaccination card and a printout or PDF (for example on the mobile phone) of data available in the e-vaccination pass are valid as proof of vaccination.

Immunization with two vaccination doses:
  • After receiving the second vaccination, the vaccination certificate is valid for 270 days and at least 14 days must have passed between the two vaccinations.
Immunization with only one vaccination:
  • From the 22nd day after vaccination with a vaccine approved with only one dose, the vaccination certificate is valid for 270 days.
    Important note: Vaccination certificates for one dose of Janssen lose their validity on 03 January 2022. Therefore, a second dose is absolutely required no earlier than 14 days after the first dose in order to continue to receive a valid vaccination certificate.
Immunization through vaccination of recovered persons:
  • If a positive molecular biological test (PCR test) was available at least 21 days before the vaccination or evidence of neutralizing antibodies is already available at the time of vaccination, the vaccination certificate is valid for 270 days from the time of the first vaccination with an officially approved vaccine.
Further vaccinations ("3rd dose"):
  • After receiving a further vaccination, the validity period of the vaccination certificate is again 270  days.
    There must be at least 14 days between this vaccination and an immunization in which only one vaccination is required. All other vaccination schedules have a period of at least 120 days between the vaccination doses.


  • A recovery certificate is valid for 180 days.
  • A written medical certificate is valid for 180 days after an infection with SARS-CoV-2. The infection must have been proven by a molecular biological test (for example: PCR test).
  • An official separation notice issued by the authorities is also valid for 180 days.
  • Valid as proof of 2 must-haves:
    • Vaccination (valid 270 days) with the following vaccines (2 doses)*:
      • BioNTech/Pfizer
      • Moderna
      • Astra Zeneca
      • Jansen
    • Certificate of recovery (valid 180 days)
    • Separation notice (valid 180days)
  • NOT valid:
    • Tests (antigen test, PCR test, ...)
    • Proof of neutralizing antibodies

*1 dose: allowed for recovered persons (see pt. 1 under 2-Must-Haves-vaccinated-recovered).

  • Children up to the age of 12 are exempt from the obligation to present a valid 2 must-haves certificate.
  • For children of school age (up to the 9th grade completed), the "Corona Test Pass" (for example: Ninja Pass in Austria) replaces the 2 must-haves certificate.
  • After completing the 9th year of school, also young people need a 2 must-haves certificate.
  • An exemption applies during school-free periods: All children must be tested regularly in the respective week (at least 2 x antigen test and 1 x PCR test). If the test intervals are adhered to, this is equivalent to 2-G detection. This regulation also applies mutatis mutandis to persons not permanently resident in Austria = holidaymakers/guests.
