3G rule: Despite Corona: Thuringian ski lifts are allowed to open

Like other federal states, Thuringia is responding to the exploded numbers of infections with stricter corona rules. Ski enthusiasts can breathe a sigh of relief: the lifts can be used like other means of transport with 3G certification.

Ski lifts may be opened for the alpine winter sports season despite the strict Corona rules that will apply in Thuringia from Thursday.

The systems are rated as a means of transport, as a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health announced in Erfurt. The ski lifts were therefore subject to the 3G rule, analogous to the federal regulations for local public transport.

Friends of alpine winter sports must therefore have their proof of vaccination, recovery or negative corona test ready at the 21 lifts in Thuringia. For restaurants on the slopes and along the cross-country skiing trails, the 2G rule (only vaccinated and convalescent) and a curfew apply.

Last winter, all ski lifts in Thuringia were shut down due to Corona – despite plenty of snow. Cross-country trails and toboggan slopes were only allowed to be used by day tourists, in some cases exclusively by residents.
