Berlin – Saxony today agreed with the ski and lift operators to end the ski season, which did not even start due to the covid-19 pandemic. This was announced by the Saxon Minister of Tourism Barbara Klepsch. The regional government of this federal state, which is most affected by coronavirus in Germany, will now negotiate compensation with the lift operators.
The current quarantine measures, which apply in Saxony at least until 7 February, make it impossible for lifts to operate. “In order for the slopes to have enough snow for the rest of the season, the operators would have to start artificial snowing now. However, the current epidemic situation is still very serious. Klepschová.
The lifts and cable cars in Saxon ski resorts, such as Oberwiesenthal, Klingenthal, Schöneck and Eibenstock, will start again at the end of this year at the earliest. But the Saxons can go cross-country skiing. However, if their trip exceeds a distance of 15 kilometers from home, they risk a fine for violating quarantine measures. Police carry out inspections in mountain areas on a regular basis.
