Our Board is monitoring Host Nation, Garrison, Destination Country, and service requirements (bus, hotel, lifts, etc).
Our COVID Regulations and Policies:
Effective 1 January 2022: All trip participants over the age of 12 must meet “2G” requirements, meaning either fully vaccinated or recovered as defined by the German government. If you sign up for a trip and do not meet the 2G requirements by the date of the trip, you will be unable to attend, and you will be responsible for all costs incurred in accordance with our cancellation policy.
**Note, Austria only recognizes people as vaccinated for 9 months past the date of their 2nd vaccination so please check your dates and booster eligibility before signing up for a trip.
Exception: Children under the age of 12 are permitted on the trips, as they are currently exempt from the 2G requirement in our destination countries. However, there is the possibility that the travel destination may be added to the RKI “High Risk Area” list at any time before or during the trip, which may require your child to quarantine upon return to Germany. This is a risk you are agreeing to by signing up for the trip. If you decide to cancel due to the area being on the Risk List, the normal cancellation policy applies. This exception for children under 12 may be updated at a later date if our host or destination countries change their policies.
If an area has been listed on the RKI site as virus variant, the trip will be cancelled and members notified. Refunds will be issued once the trip has been reconciled and no financial burden is incurred by the club.
You are responsible for understanding your command travel policies. If you need to cancel due to command travel policy, the normal trip cancellation policy will apply.
Things to KNow
This site is a good one to refer to in order to better understand what the restrictions are for entering or returning to a country. They even have an app.
If the entirety of a trip is cancelled by the Patch Ski Club Board due to COVID restrictions put in place a full refund of money paid will be provided back to the trip attendees.
The Patch Ski Club Board endeavors to follow Host Nation, Garrison, Destination, and Services (Bus, Hotel, Lifts, etc) Policies. It will be up to the individual on the trip to verify that they have all of the appropriate documentation to board the bus, enter the destination country, hotel, and return to Germany. If for any reason you are denied entry, it is not the responsibility of Patch Ski Club to get you home. The Club will make an effort to help you identify testing facilities if this occurs. Our TCs and Board will provide updates to trip attendees as necessary.
