Super Green Pass, mandatory Ffp2 masks for covered facilities and online ticket purchases. For skiing, from 10 January, new rules have taken over that require greater attention on the slopes by skiers: in addition to the obligation to possess the enhanced green pass (issued only with a complete vaccination cycle or if you have recovered from Covid), on the lifts “closed” (telecabins, cable cars, lowered dome chairlifts, covered carpets) the use of a Ffp2 mask is required and the obligation to wear a mask (including surgical) remains on all those that are open.
Furthermore, to avoid queues at the cash desks, since last year PromoTurismoFvg has been offering ski enthusiasts the possibility of buying tickets online: you need to register on the site and go – only once – to the ticket offices to collect the “Ticket Card”; from the next time it will be possible to load tickets directly onto the card, so as to avoid further steps at the cash desks and go directly to the lift turnstiles. On portal, daily, 3, 4 and 5 hour ski passes are available: by selecting “Buy” you can choose a ski pass valid for the Tarvisio, Zoncolan, Sappada and Piancavallo ski areas, or for Sella Nevea and Forni di Sopra, at a discounted rate. Anyone who buys the ski pass, but does not yet have a “Ticket Card” will receive a voucher and will have to go to the cash desks to convert it into a ticket. Some types of ski passes are only available at ticket offices, such as family packages or for those who are entitled to special reductions.
The “Ticket Card” is part of the digitization project launched last year in which PromoTurismoFvg, until 31 August 2021, has made available the opportunity to register and obtain the card for free; from that date the cards are on sale at a cost of 5 euros with a validity of five years.
In the meantime, checks on the slopes continue: PromoTurismoFvg, with the help of some external companies and the collaboration of the police, constantly carries out checks near the entrances of the main lifts and major access points, and invites skiers to respect the rules between distancing and wearing the mask to safely enjoy a day on the snow.
It should also be remembered that the new regulations of decree 40/2021 have been in force since 1 January, which aims to increase the safety of those who practice the various winter sports in Italy, including skiing: the obligation to use a helmet for under 18 years of age, the possession of an insurance policy for civil liability against third parties (PromoTurismoFVG offers the possibility of purchasing it together with the ski pass with a surcharge of 3 euros) and the prohibition to ski or practice winter sports while intoxicated as a result of use of alcoholic beverages and toxicological substances.
The lifts in the six ski areas of Friuli Venezia Giulia are in operation with all the slopes open and to keep up to date it is always possible to consult the section InfoSnow.
