The safety concepts employed by cable car companies include the following basic rules:
- Cleanliness and organisation: There must be sufficient opportunities to wash hands with soap and water or with hand sanitiser. Surfaces and objects that are touched by multiple people must be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. Guests can use floor markings and signage to help them maintain social distancing.
- In all closed means of transport, e.g. in trains, cabins and gondolas, only two thirds of the seats may be occupied. This applies to both seated and standing passengers.
- Avoidance of personal contact: Buy your tickets online in advance to avoid queues at the cash desks and to minimise contact with other guests. If you buy your ticket at the cash desk, please pay electronically in a contactless transaction.
- Mask obligation: The obligation to wear a protective mask (mouth and nose protection) applies not only in the closed cable car cabins, but also on open-air lifts (chair lifts, drag lifts). It is also compulsory to wear a mouth and nose mask in the queuing areas (both outdoors and indoors).
- Employee protection: The protection of employees is as important as the protection of guests. There are clear rules that are implemented and observed: Keep a distance, wear plexiglass panels, e.g. at ticket counters or wear a mask if the distance cannot be maintained.
- Pre-existing statutory hygiene and safety regulations must continue to be observed. The mandatory wearing of masks also applies in the outdoor areas of institutions and businesses, anywhere where the necessary distancing measures cannot be complied with in a public space.
