What to Expect This Winter

Back to A Guide to Skiing in France

The ski seasons in the pandemic have been quite a roller coaster and it has been difficult for skiers and indeed for resorts and travel companies to plan as the rules kept changing.

The good news is that, although we have learned since March 2020 to never take anything for granted, the direction of travel appears to be good with restrictions easing on both sides of the Channel.

Of course, French ski resorts continue to err on the side of caution. It is very difficult to travel if you are not fully vaccinated and social distancing, mask wearing, hand sanitising and showing your vaccine status to enter public places, including ski lifts, remains the norm, but these are usually small inconveniences in order to get back on the slopes!
