My-Mountains' Outdoor Activities Safety Concept

The safety of the guests and employees of GmbH is always a top priority. For this reason, the following Outdoor Activities Safety Concept was created based on the current COVID-19 situation. It is intended to ensure the best possible protection to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

This Outdoor Activities Safety Concept is based on the specifications of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). All those involved (guests, employees, tour guides and chauffeurs) are obliged to comply with the Outdoor Activities Safety Concept at all times. The management of GmbH ensures that all employees and its suppliers are informed about this Outdoor Activities Safety Concept and commit themselves to comply with it.
