FSkiing holidays in France may not be an option right now, but resorts and borders are open to Brits elsewhere. Here is an overview of the rules in force.
In order to avoid having to quarantine themselves upon arrival in Austria, travelers are required to show proof of a second dose of vaccine, or booster, no more than 360 days and no less than 21 days before the journey. Stations are open but adults will need to show 2G status (full vaccination less than 9 months ago, recovery within 6 months) to ride a ski lift, while unvaccinated 12-14 year olds require two tests. antigen and PCR test to classify as 2G. These tests are offered free of charge at your station. The après-ski experience has also changed; there will be no standing in bars and no table dancing this season.
Everyone, regardless of their vaccination status, must present a negative test carried out within 48 hours before entering Italy. Ski resorts are open but on December 6 a new Green Super Pass went into effect – proof of vaccination or recovery will be required for anyone over 12 to purchase lift tickets, along with scanned passes at the base of the gondola, as well to access restaurants and bars.
You must present a negative test result before entering Switzerland and perform a second between the fourth and seventh day of arrivals. Once in the resort, which are now all open, masks are mandatory in indoor queues and cable cars, and throughout Switzerland, entry into many indoor places, such as restaurants or bars, is only allowed to those who have been fully vaccinated, recovered from the coronavirus, or tested negative, and have a certificate to prove it.
