Unlike their European neighbors, skiers in Switzerland will not be required to show a covid certificate to hit the slopes this season. The decision was announced following discussions between the government and ski areas, local media reports.
The government said it is confident the upcoming season will be safe despite not requiring the covid certificate. Ski areas, however, are free to require the certificate if they see it necessary.

The covid certificate, which is being required by ski resorts in France, Austria, and Italy, proves that the holder has either been vaccinated, recently recovered from the virus, or tested negative.
Masks will still be required in lifts and mountain railways and cable cars.
