Organizers implemented all Covid-19 measures in all areas. Still they are counting on every visitor as well to act responsibly. Mask is obligatory in the gondola for example but also in the expo area. Due to the recent developments the Video Night at Tux Center is cancelled. Focus this year is solely on the mountain activities. All side-events take a pause this year to guarantee a worry-free weekend on the mountain, as health and safety of all involved has highest priority.
