Some snow up on Val D this morning...
Tell me about it
Just looking at our spring discount-trip to Åre 2021 - Swedes might have reached herd immunity by then. (I hope ).
Alps - well, no idea!
Be interested to see how this season goes in Europe, with high rona numbers at present due to all the Summer travel. I struggle to see how well Winter can go, until the vaccine arrives.
Unlike elsewhere in the World, massive numbers of people arrive by train and bus and transit through busy airports and stations and then onto crowded trains with limited toilets and cafe carriages..
We have no plans. We'll be watching (from afar) with interest.
10000 plus ronas in France daily...
I had a plan to spend a couple of months next year in Europe.
It won't be happening and hopefully only on hold for 12 months.
Feeling comfortable with a 20/21 tour (assuming borders open) or not?
Na. Other issues also having an influence.
Will be 21/22 (assuming world is more normal by then)
Edit: doesn't mean I wouldnt consider a couple of weeks if borders were open, just not the BIG trip I had planned
Yeah. I’m dreaming of a week or so in Tignes, Banff or Saas Fee for Easter next year.
You will be lucky to go anywhere apart from maybe NZ or a few Pacific Islands anytime before Easter or mid next year
Crystal have just cancelled all chalet holidays for this winter coming still offering HB hotels and SC apartments could be Covid causes major shift in UK ski holidays. I’m not seeing any chance of getting to the Alps this winter but have qantas credits if situation changes last minute
Link to article about Crystal.
Sadly to be expected., Combine chalets with bus transfers, train transfers and staffing, its a Covid nightmare
Not only covid - Brexit and no deal was already making it impossible.
Above article studiously avoids any mention of what a no-deal Brexit would add to the pandemic disruption to Brits winter holiday plans....!
Yep the aforementioned UK passport that we’re applying for may not have the power it used to.
Any Irish background could help.
Nope, CG was born in London so can pass a UK passport down to our girls.
Plenty of apartments left in the place where we stay in Val D. Never seen this many available this late. Offering 10% off to get people to book
Snowing in Val D at the moment
F#ck you Covid.
Austrian morning TV weather panorama from yesterday.
Explains why so much accomodation is not booked in the popular UK traveller resorts like Val D'ISÈRE
Zermatt proud about the season ahead...
Also a new 10 person Dopp gondola.. with no staff...
The non stop TGV schedules from Paris to Bourg St Maurice came out yesterday for Dec and early Jan. Normally about now fever is high as you try to get the tickets on the train you want and at the best DEAL price..
At this rate I think Europe 2021/2022 will not even happen
We won't be going to Austria next year
Now that's a 20% fall on 19/20 numbers which were a 20% fall on 18/19 numbers.
The resorts that rely on the British would suffer hard.. plus the number of ronas in France...
La Via Lattea will be impacted by that for sure and the fact that the local Club Med won't open for the 2020/2021 season won't certainly help.
Reading the what's new for 2020 for Val D'Isère
42% of visitors last year were from the UK.....
13 lifts are now running at Kitzsteinhorn.
