in Switzerland and in Bavaria the ski season is well started despite Corona. The Jungfrau Railways in the Swiss ski area around Grindelwald and Wengen even spoke of the best winter season start for ten years. The reason is, among other things, the commissioning of a new train, which can bring more guests faster on the peaks.
In Bavaria, there were traffic jams on parking spaces and partly queues on the cash registers of the ski stations. Austria had a bad start because of a new Lockdown at the beginning of December and mainly relies on February business.
