Wildkogel-Arena protects its guests and employees
Information about Wildkogel lift operations during winter season
Skiing is an extremely healthy outdoor sport. When you are out in the fresh mountain air, you replenish your vitamin D levels and get lots of exercise in the process. And the benefits aren’t merely physical: Especially after all those restrictions of recent months, a stay in the mountains also does wonders for your state of mind. Good reasons, then, to see you here this winter!
Guest testing - extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures!
Because the health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority, we now conduct regular employee testing while also offering guests a PCR gargle test.
The lab analysis is conducted by Tauernlabor GmbH in Zell am See. Tauernlabor is a sister company of the Tauernkliniken and is a certified, accredited laboratory. The test result is available online within 48 hours by means of the Tauernlabor GmbH web portal.
The cost for guest testing is € 49 per person/test with a guest card from Neukirchen/Bramberg, otherwise € 115 per person/test.
A requirement for the PCR gargle test is that:
Have symptoms? – if so, dial the number 1450!
An expert will then inform you about the next steps to take. It is possible and expressly requested that foreign guests who are symptomatic call 1450.
If you have a foreign mobile phone, the full number you need to call is: +43 662 1450
In addition, guests have the option of being tested by one of our local doctors.
