Schweizer Skischule Saas Fee

Covid-19 protection concept


Covid-19 has been determining our lives and actions for months. Snow sports are not excluded from this.

Although outdoor activities reduce the risk of infection, they still require measures to contain the virus.

We - the Swiss Ski School Saas-Fee - strictly follow the guidelines and recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the Canton of Valais. After all, the health of our guests and our employees is our top priority.

To be able to guarantee this, we have drawn up a detailed protection concept. The most important measures are listed below.

We look forward to welcoming you in the fresh air and showing you the unique mountain world of Saas-Fee.

See you soon and with safety in class!
