Current winter information

Based on the latest available information, there is reason to believe that skiing will be restricted in any way in the 2021/2022 season. As an outdoor activity that takes place away from the crowds, on a relatively small and shielded location, even during the pandemic, it is proven to be healthy and necessary to counteract the possible negative effects of restrictions and lockdowns we experience these days.

In the children’s skiing centre social distancing is ensured by the use of T-bars and also observed at the ticket office and during the whole process of the winter skiing in the ski school.

Falkert, located in the Reichenau Feldkirchen district in Austria is considered one of the least affected area in the country in terms of the number of COVID-19 infections. Visit the  Corona traffic light map for the latest official information.
