Which Ski Resorts will be the Safest this Winter?

Top 5 Ways to Stay Covid-Safe on your Ski Holiday

1. Be aware of your surroundings. Maintain a sensible social distance on and off the slopes whenever possible. By the nature of ski holidays, this is actually quite easy rtsp 파일.

2. Wear a neck-gaiter. It’ll keep you warm when skiing, and double-up as a suitable face covering if you pull it over your mouth and nose when entering shops etc.

3. Consider a self-drive ski holiday. Maintain a safe social distance on your journey. Eurostar trains leave roughly every 40 minutes from Folkestone to Calais and many ski resorts are within a 9-hour drive once you get on the continent, with plenty of stop-over options along the way 다운로드.

4. Avoid the big and busy mountain bars. Take the opportunity to seek out some hidden gems and lesser known small villages in the surrounding ski area.
