Wearing a mask is compulsory (from age 11) in these spaces:
- In all sales outlets,
- On all ski lifts, when queueing – both inside and outside,
- In all types of ski lifts during the transport - we advise you to travel with your family or with other members of your group.

What hygiene measures are being carried out in the ski lift arrival and departure stations, and in public places (toilets…) ?

You can wash your hands with soap and water in the public toilets and with the hand sanitiser available in all public places. Surfaces and objects used by many different people, such as credit card machines, bank note and card readers, door handles, railings, surfaces and payment counters will be regularly cleaned, as will all premises open to the public.

How are you limiting unnecessary contact?

As well as being available to purchase in sales outlets, you can also buy or recharge your skipass online, meaning you won’t have to wait in a queue, therefore keeping contact to a strict minimum. The health pass will be verified on the ski area.

If you don’t have a rechargeable skipass card, you can get one from the sales outlets.

Those who prefer to pay and collect their ski lift pass from the sales outlet will be asked to pay by credit or debit card wherever possible.
