Surely you have checked our post on anti-covid measures and protocols in European ski resorts and you have seen that the French resorts, especially in the French Alps, have been among the first to implement health and safety measures and some such as Chamonix or the glacier in Les Deux Alps did open during the summer and it has been proven that it is possible to ski and stay safe at the same time.


However, given the current situation in France, it has been decided that the French resorts will remain closed until the end of February. Therefore, it is estimated that the resorts can open from March 13, 2021. We'll make sure post any updates to keep you informed at all times.
