Time to find your Alpine flow. France welcomes UK riders

by FLŌA Sports January 15, 2022

The winter season is in full flow


Temperatures are low. Piste are hard-packed and groomed. Off-piste is chalky and fun. Powder stashes are findable. Travel is possible. 

When France announced that it would allow UK travellers, we thought... YES! Snowboarding and skiing in the Alps is really back on and it feels like it won't be stalled again.

If you haven't planned your winter mountain excursion yet, here is a rundown on the current rules** from the UK to some of the best ski destinations in Europe.


France

Entry regulations: Vaccinated travellers free to travel. All travellers must have a PCR or antigen test 24 hours prior to travel.

Non vaccinated must have a compelling reason to travel. (Maybe with the right border official, shredding some pow might be accepted.)

Proof of vaccination is required to ride chair lifts and enter bars and restaurants.

 

Italy

 
Entry regulations: Vaccinated travellers allowed to travel. You must fill in a passenger locator form.

Negative PCR test 48 hours prior to travel is also required.

Non vaccinated travellers must produce the same and isolate for 5 days after arriving.
