Today we present the Covid-19 protocol that the Sierra Nevada ski resort will establish for this 2020/2021 ski season.
If you plan to go skiing to Sierra Nevada this winter, we have compiled frequently asked questions from our customers and then we answer each one of them. As you may have already read in our exclusive previews , ATUDEM has launched a covid measurement protocol for all Spanish resorts that are part of this association. Sierra Nevada follows these measures but has also decided to add some nuances to promote safe skiing for this winter.
What measures should skiers take in Sierra Nevada?
The use of a mask is mandatory for people over 6 years of age in all the ski resort facilities:
❄ Ski lifts and boarding waiting areas
❄ Closed Spaces
❄ Shops and Rentals
The ski resort conveys the importance of respecting the safety distance , the gauges and the circulation circuits that will be well signposted.
What will the entrances and lockers be like in Sierra Nevada?
In Plaza de Andalucía there will be a queue organization system to guarantee the distance between skiers. The same measures will be applied in the ATMs and the accesses to the Borreguiles and Al Ándalus cable cars.
How are the ski lifts going to operate?
It is important to avoid crowds and therefore one of the cable cars that connects Pradollano with Borreguiles (probably the Al Ándalus cable car) will open half an hour earlier than usual , that is, at 8:30 a.m.
We already gave some exclusive info in our post We already have the COVID protocols of the ski resorts that the Sierra Nevada ski resort would reduce the capacity in the cable cars. Well, we can confirm that, for greater safety, there will be limitations in the large ski lifts of the resort:
❄ Borreguiles cable car: 6 people per cabin. (on a total capacity of 8 people).
❄ Al-Ándalus cable car: 8 people per cabin. (on a total capacity of 14 feet).
This interests you! These limitations may be overcome as long as it is a family unit living in the same address.
How will they work in the ski rental stores managed by Cetursa Sierra Nevada?
All the ski and snowboard rental stores that are managed by Cetursa Sierra Nevada limit the capacity and will signal it so that you can consult it before entering the store. Did you know that you can go to the store the afternoon before you go skiing? In this way you will have everything ready to make the most of your time on the slopes and avoid concentrations of people waiting outside the stores;)
All material will be cleaned with disinfection products after use.
Will you be able to eat in Sierra Nevada this winter?
Surely you are wondering if it will be possible to eat on the slopes or not this winter. Well, from the resort they tell us that the restaurant Bodega in Pradollano and all the restaurants on the slopes that are managed by Cetura Sierra Nevada, will set a capacity and put visible signage in indoor and outdoor areas, finding out what areas and people can be occupied.
Finally, we would like to add that the measures and regulations for capacity can change at any time depending on what the health authority dictates.
