Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@snowhound, I was wondering that - thankfully (I think) all mine will be over 18 by then - I assume there would need to be some agreement on children. if only there was some sort of Europe wide organisation!

If memory serves, I'm sure the message at start of new year was if priority groups vaccinated by Feb we can look at easing restrictions. Priority groups now seem to everyone!

@pam w, Yes indoors - hard to make a like for like comparison for compliance outdoors, as there is no legal requirement to wear masks outdoors in UK (unless I've missed it!!!)

@davidof, Personal observation, but I've seen very few people not wearing masks since well before Xmas. Was a reluctance initially but last time in local big Tesco I saw no-one unmasked. Back in October it would have been 15-20 people

@homphomp, I'd be inclined to agree with you - cases/deaths all falling here, but not being reported in media as a positive news story. My namesake got another press conference this evening - sure it will be full on scare tactics and behave yourselves
You know it makes sense.

@homphomp, I was 99% certain, given thread and your location, but thought I'd check. Given rates seem to be dropping I'd be surprised, even allowing for holidays. Heck in UK rates are dropping and as far as I can tell there's no lockdown going on here anymore

While I was guilty of contributing to this thread drift, there are plenty of threads running elsewhere on benefits or otherwise of lockdown. Might be sensible to return here to whether the season is likely to happen? Almost certainly not is my reluctant conclusion

@Pejoli, The Zoe app has been pretty consistent with reporting of trends -they estimate that peak of infections was around 3rd Jan. Three days before lockdown started. How much different it would have been without I don't know - none of know - I certainly don't. I don't think you can control a virus, from personal observation this lockdown has been nowhere near as tight as others. So whether it has made a difference, or just spread the deaths over a longer period, I don't know the answer to. There are arguments each way. For avoidance of doubt - I'm not a covid denier or a lockdown sceptic, I actually think this lockdown could have been imposed earlier rather than messing about with Tiers. But I don't know what difference it has made overall

We have 100,000 deaths WITH restrictions - imagine what it would look like without them! That's the unknown - either 500000 as per Fergurson predictions or exactly the same, given that for all lockdowns infections peaked just before lockdown. The original flatten the curve was never about preventing deaths - just spreading them out over a longer period

@orange, Ditto -have numerous weekends booked up (including some in March on off-chance they open) and then a few weeks in late summer. All cancellable, all no deposit so a safe bet. If we can't take them so be it, but they're there is we can. Everywhere is going to book up fast this year so book now - if you need to buy a tent to camp then get that ordered, they will sell out to

@thierryd, That's the key I think - even if they can open, will it be worth it? How many people would go to make it worthwhile - Easter is generally low season, but will there be a pent up demand?

To return to the thread, I was optimistic when this thread started that skiing at Easter would be possible. I still think there is an outside chance, but realistically it won't be happening for me. Resorts may open March/April but I suspect the costs/hassle of travel (PCR test, quarantine etc) will make it a no-go. That said, things can change quickly so I'm not cancelling my w/c 27th March until the absolute last moment.
And post your own questions...

@albob, Will be interesting if Italy (for example) opens up ski resorts and France doesn't, can see a bit of push back in France and maybe the EU trying to enforce a standard approach again.

As expected, France has confirmed that ski lifts in their resorts will not be re-opened for at least another month: https://www.euronews.com/2021/02/01/france-says-its-ski-lifts-will-remain-closed-for-at-least-another-month Remains to be seen but think that'll be the nail in coffin for this season - can't see many resorts wanting to open for 6-8 weeks after?

I haven't cancelled our end of March trip yet - sadly I think I'll have to - but am going to leave it as late as possible Surely there will come a point that, if they haven't already opened, resorts just won't bother? I'd imagine the cost of gearing up, checking runs, lifts, getting staff ready etc wouldn't be worth it for a few weeks.
You know it makes sense.

If we could go to pubs, clubs, theatres and concert halls, and see our family and friends, I would happily forego foreign travel. Let's keep things in perspective. Can I add, have some decent weather as well. I actually agree with you but one of the main factors for taking a holiday abroad is the strong chance of many sunny days. Oh and it's usually cheaper than staying in UK

Used to ski, switched to boarding, started skiing again Much prefer boarding when you have oodles of fresh snow - however, with limited lessons, my boarding is ok for pistes not so good anywhere else. As falls hurt more now at 52 I went back to skiing as I enjoy my one week a year more and can keep up with kids - one of whom boards. Being able to ski already I think helps with learning as you know the basics of weight transfer. I'd certainly encourage anyone to give the "other" discipline a go, helps you understand what they will do on the slopes and gives you an appreciation for others
