SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental will start what is sure to be a tremendous winter season on Saturday 11 December 2021.

We are already looking forward to spending wonderful days on the slopes with all of you. Even if we don't yet know exactly what to expect in the 2021-22 winter season, we know one thing for sure: The safety and health of all our guests, staff and residents comes first.

We will do everything we can to provide you with unforgettable days on our slopes, as you have come to expect from us. If concrete measures for the skiing areas are issued by the federal government again, we will inform you here immediately. But you can be sure that we will implement the measures in the best possible way, as you have always been used to from us, in order to offer you the best skiing days of the whole year!

Your SkiWelt Team



Measures in force for the winter season

From 15 November 2021, a basic 2G obligation will apply to transport by cable car. This means that only persons who can prove that they meet the requirements of § 1 part 1 Z 1 (vaccinated) and 2 (recovered) may be transported. Antigen tests and PCR tests are no longer valid as proof.

Since 22 November, a lockdown has been in effect throughout Austria for a maximum of 20 days. During the lockdown, the FFP2 mask requirement (also for vaccinated and recovered persons) applies again in the access area and during the ride on the gondola lifts. Even after the lockdown, SkiWelt Bergbahnen recommends that all guests continue to do so for their own safety.
Note: Even if a family from the same household is in the gondola, they must wear the FFP2 mask or MNS for children during the ride.
This also applies to customer areas of cable cars (ticket sales, souvenir shop, etc.) which are clearly separated from the access area to the cable car.

The measures in force are regulated by a 5-step plan, which depends on the occupancy of intensive care beds by Covid patients in Austria.

Step-by-step Plan

  • Level 1 = from 10 % occupancy
  • Level 2 = from 15 % occupancy
  • Level 3 = from 20 % occupancy
  • Level 4 = from 25% occupancy
  • Level 5 = from 30 % occupancy (valid from 15 November 2021)


For persons who use the cableway to cover necessary basic needs of daily life and do not provide proof of 2G, the mask obligation (FFP2 mask) will continue beyond 15.11.2021. The 2G obligation does not apply to pregnant women and people who for health reasons can not be vaccinated. They have to bring a negative PCR-test result, issued by an authority and not older then 72hrs, and a medical statement from a physician. Other exempts and actual measures can be found on the website of the Austrian Ministry of Health (in German).

The measures in force are regulated by a 5-step plan, which depends on the occupancy of intensive care beds by Covid patients in Austria.

Tightenings come into effect 7 days after the percentage value is reached.

Step-by-step Plan: current stage and associated rules - adults and children

According to the Austrian federal government, level 5 applies from Monday 15.11.2021.
Current measures: 2G (vaccinated or recovered) in hotels, gastronomy and also for skiing.

Children and adolescents

  • Up to the age of 6, there is no obligation to wear a mask or bring proof of 2G.
  • Up to the age of 14, a tight-fitting mouth-nose protection is sufficient.
  • From the age of 12, a 2G certificate is required.
  • Before the age of 12, no 2G proof is required.

For school-age children, the Corona Test Pass (Ninja Pass) replaces the 2G proof. For children and adolescents from 12 years of age until completion of grade 9 (general compulsory education), the Ninja Pass therefore continues to be valid as proof of a low epidemiological risk, provided that the provisions according to § 19 para. 1 COVID-19 School Ordinance 2021/22 are complied with. During these weeks, the Ninja Pass is also valid on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

NEW: During non-school weeks, holders of a Ninja Pass can use a valid PCR-test as a substitute of the proof of 2G, if the Ninja Pass test intervals have been executed as required.

On the question of formal equivalence of equivalent proofs from foreign schools, a request from the professional association to the Ministry of Health is currently pending.

Validity period 2G-proof


  • BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca: 9 months after receipt of second or third vaccination.
  • Johnson/Johnson: valid until 02.01.2022, after that a 2nd dose is needed for a valid green passport
  • Recovered and vaccinated: 9 months after receipt of vaccination
  • All vaccines not licensed in Austria (e.g. Sputnik V): not valid
  • Transitional period until 6.12.2021: Until then, access is also possible with initial vaccination and additional PCR test


  • Recovery certificate or certificate of isolation: valid up to 6 months (180 days) after the end of quarantine. A certificate of isolation or a medical confirmation of an infection confirmed by molecular biology is valid as proof.


  • From the age of 12, a 2G certificate is required.
  • For school-age children, the fully completed "Ninja Pass" is also valid at weekends (issued only at Austrian schools). The Ninja Pass is treated as equivalent to the 2G proof and is therefore also valid as proof of admission. After completion of the ninth school year, young people must also have a 2G proof in order to be allowed to enter 2G settings.
  • During non-school hours, 2G detection may continue to be substituted for students who are subject to general compulsory education if Ninja Pass can be shown to have equivalent tests and test intervals. A negative result of a molecular biological test for SARS-CoV-2 (e.g. PCR test) carried out by an authorized body, which must not have been taken more than 72 hours ago, is considered as proof.

Safe2Ski - 2G checks in the ski area


SkiWelt ski pass purchase & season tickets

During the lockdown period, pre-sale season tickets at the cash desks must be stopped.
We are extending the season ticket sales at all box offices from December 11th - 20th, 2021
The reduced season ticket sales in the online shop can of course continue and will continue until December 19th. 12:00 p.m. extended.

Online Ticket Shop

In the SkiWelt online ticket shop, all guests can conveniently top up their ski passes or order them home as they choose. Please note that postal delivery also takes a few days. Here, too, we guarantee you the greatest possible security. The value on unredeemed ski passes remains 100%, of course. This value can be redeemed at 100% at a later date, e.g. in the following season. The same applies to gift vouchers.

Purchase of a ski ticket and procedure with the current measures


  • Step 1: Buy the ticket at the cash desk.
  • Step 2: The staff at the cash desk link the ticket number with the 2G proof and thus the ski ticket is activated.


  • Step 1: Buy the ticket in the online shop
  • Step 2: Link the ticket with the 2G proof - enter the ticket number and scan the QR code (green pass, health certificate, vaccination certificate).

The tool for self-linking is Safe2Ski.

Season ticket or multi-day day ticket: 2G proof has expired

The ski pass is only activated for the period of validity of the 2G proof. After expiry, a new 2G certificate must be presented. This can either be done on site at the ticket office or online. In the latter case, the ticket number can be entered online or the QR code can be scanned.


Huts & Gastronomy

According to the current regulations, the SkiWelt huts will be allowed to open after the end of the lockdown, just like the hotel industry, from 13.12. We will soon inform you in advance which huts will open when and which take-away options will be offered on the first two opening days.

Mountain restaurants will be open again this winter. The access measures can be found in the new graduated plan.
Après ski will only be possible under strict rules, analogous to night gastronomy.

  • Level 1: Access with 3G proof (vaccinated, recovered, tested = self-test valid 24h, supervised antigen test valid 24h, PCR test valid 72h).
  • Stage 2: Antigen tests with self-testing ("living room tests") and antibody tests are no longer valid as proof of access
  • Stage 3: Antigen tests are no longer valid as proof of entry. Only vaccinated or recovered or PCR-tested are valid.
  • Stage 4: From 08.11.2021 tests are no longer valid as proof of admission. Only vaccinated or recovered are valid.
  • Stage 5: Exit restrictions for all who are not vaccinated or recovered.

Over 80 rustic huts are looking forward to welcoming you again this season.
