Can I take my dog with me on the ski lifts?

In most ski areas, dogs are not allowed on the ski lifts. However, there are exceptions under certain conditions. On the Zugspitze, Nebelhorn or Krippenstein in the Salzkammergut Dachstein, for example, dogs are allowed in the gondola if they are kept on a leash and wear a muzzle. Therefore, always check the current regulations of the respective ski area before your visit.

What preparations should I make for a ski holiday with my dog?

Make sure your dog is vaccinated and has valid pet health insurance. Also pack warm dog clothing, the prescribed equipment such as a dog lead and muzzle (depending on the country you are travelling to) and paw care kits for the snow.

What documents do I need for a ski holiday with my dog?

You will need a pet passport for your dog and an EU pet passport with up-to-date vaccination certificates. Please also note the special requirements of the respective ski resorts or countries.

Do dog-friendly ski hotels also offer dog care?

Yes, some dog-friendly accommodation offers various dog care options such as dog sitters so that guests and dogs have a pleasant stay. In some accommodations, dogs can also stay alone in the room as long as they behave quietly. However, this should be clarified with the accommodation in advance, as some hotels do not allow this for safety reasons. Another option, especially if you are travelling in a group, is for a non-skier in the group to look after the dog while you ski.

Are additional costs to be expected for the accommodation of my dog?

Yes, most accommodations charge an additional fee for pets. More detailed information can be found in the respective accommodation description.
