Mandatory wearing of mouth-nose protectors in all publicly accessible rooms

According to the latest decision by the cantonal government of Graubünden, persons aged 12 and over must wear a mouth-nose protector (MNS) in all rooms accessible to the public from Saturday, 17 October. For the cable car sector, this means that wearing a mouth-nose protector or a mask is now mandatory as soon as you enter the entrance area. Of course the wearing of a mouth-nose protector is still obligatory in our mountain railways and cable cars on Corvatsch/Furtschellas and Diavolezza/Lagalb.

In the restaurants, cafés and bars it is now also mandatory to wear a mouth-nose protector while standing or moving around in the room. The mask does not have to be worn when sitting at a table.

In order to protect our guests and employees, we ask you to observe a few rules. The following measures apply to the use of the cable cars:

  • Keep your distance
  • Wear a mouth-nose protector
  • Observe hygiene rules
  • Pay cashless
  • Take along read brochures
  • We clean regularly

Protective measures

Corvatsch AG and Diavolezza Lagalb AG implement the measures of the protection concept according to the recommendations of Cable Cars Switzerland. In addition, the large-capacity cabins are regularly disinfected with a highly effective hydrogen peroxide atomizer. "Furthermore, we appeal to the self-responsibility and solidarity of our guests", emphasises Markus Moser.

The following protective measures are to be taken into account in the cable cars and in the catering establishments:

Mountain railway service: To protect ourselves
Gastronomy: To protect ourselves

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the winter skiing season 2020/21 start?

The first ski day in the Engadin takes place as planned on the Diavolezza, on 17 October. The Corvatsch and Corviglia ski season will start on 28 November. Naturally, this skiing and snowboarding season will be a bit different from the previous years but, nevertheless, we are convinced that everyone will be able to keep safe distances while enjoying the more than 300 km of slopes in our skiing region.

Can I get a refund on my ski pass if the mountain railway service is being suspended?

In the event of an official order to suspend all transport services due to a pandemic (lockdown), the selling price of tickets and subscriptions will be refunded in the form of a voucher. This voucher can be redeemed for the purchase of a ticket or subscription. Calculation of the refund (partial refund): purchase price / validity period x duration (number of days) of the official closure.

Will there be a refund for ski passes if the Engadin/Switzerland will be put on a quarantine/risk list?

In that case or if you cannot travel to the Upper Engadin due to health reasons, any refund is excluded. A travel cancellation insurance therefore is strongly recommended.

Will there be a limit on capacity in mountain railways and chair lifts?

Neither the Swiss legislator nor the Federal Office of Public Health have plans to restrict the maximum number of people in cable cars or chair lifts. Any ride with our cable cars will take less than 15 minutes; only a contact time longer than 15 minutes leads to an increased risk of infection. In case of large crowds there will be further rides in order to undercut the maximum transport capacity.

Measures in mountain restaurants

In the mountain restaurants the official minimum distances between tables and seating opportunities apply. Furthermore, partitions have been installed in the seating areas, and the self-service areas have been adjusted to the hygiene measures.Mouth-nose-protection must be carried along at all times and be used when the required minimum distance to other people cannot be observed.
