Updated: 11/08/2020

Is skiing possible in the 2020/2021 season?

Yes! Your 2020/2021 ski holiday can take place. Together with our partners at tourism agencies, lift companies and hotels, we look forward to welcoming you to a relaxing and safe ski holiday in the 2020/2021 season. Gondolas and mountain huts have already opened during summer, following corona-based hygiene restrictions. And in the event of closures during the winter, all of our customers can rely on our corona-money-back-guarantee!

Our corona-money-back-guarantee

If your booked accommodation or all ski areas included in the booked lift pass are closed due to the corona virus one day before the start of your holiday (the arrival day), you are able to cancel for free. This is also the case if the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFA) sets their security rating to "do not travel" for your booked resort, or if travel is not possible due to the destination country having closed its borders.

Already during the past season, we refunded 100% of customers funds from ski trips that could not take place due to the coronavirus. The customer funds are also covered by insolvency protection.

Book without risk – free cancellation until 30/09/2020 and further advantages

In times of crisis, it is perhaps more important than ever to focus on the good things in life, including your next ski holiday. Acccordingly, we have decided to offer the possibility to cancel for free until 30/09/2020. This applies to all bookings made now and onwards. The policy of course also applies to peak season dates such as Christmas, New Year's, half-term and Easter. Moreover, you of course also benefit from our corona-money-back-guarantee (see above).

Skiing not necessarily a corona risk sport: At an event organised by the "Dein Winter. Dein Sport" initiative, Professor Doctor Ralf Roth at Deutsche Sporthochschule Köln (German Sport University Cologne) points out that skiing is a good way to stay active, provided sufficient individual responsibility is taken.
