For the limitation to 50% access to the ski domain, Sierra Nevada - which will deduct from the capacity the holders of seasonal ski passes, long duration and the holders of ski days not consumed by the premature closure of the previous season - will inform daily on the website the percentage of ski passes that can be acquired and will block those days that are complete.
How is the capacity calculated?
Sierra Nevada establishes the capacity on pistes taking into account the carrying capacity of the ski lifts that are operational each day (vehicle occupancy + travel time), the waiting time of the users before accessing these ski lifts, the ski area (hectares of open slopes) and the frequency of descents of the average user on the slope of the slopes that enter service each day (it is estimated that a skier or snowboarder skis on average 5 hours daily on routes that add up to a slope of 3,700 meters).
Taking advantage of the obligation to limit the capacity, the station will delve into the calculation of capacity by introducing other variables such as the difficulty of the tracks that are put into service. This will be joined by an on-the-spot measurement of user behaviour in time runs and its effect on ski lift access and distribution queues in the ski domain that is enabled every day
