The Serra da Estrela Ski Resort starts has now begun operating with rules adapted to the current pandemic situation said Carlos Varandas, the project's general director.

"As soon as we received the approval of the General Directorate of Health and, taking into account that we have the mountain with snow, we decided to open it, but this year we will have new rules to allow people to continue to enjoy the snow, the ski and the resort with the best security conditions", he said.

The use of mask is mandatory both indoors and on the slopes, restrictions will mean that there can only be one person per seat on the chairlift and the maximum number of people will be four in stores.

Ski lessons for groups have been suppressed, with only the individual option available and the sale of ski passes is exclusively online to avoid queues.

The rented material (helmets, poles or ski boots) will be disinfected after each use and the helmets will have disposable protective caps.

Different circuits of circulation inside the resort were also defined to avoid people passing closely.

The maximum capacity of the resort at the weekend will now be only 350 people, when in other years it reached 1100.
