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 :-)

the ultimate sloping-off staycation. If you go to Scotland skiing it's not a staycation - it's a holiday A staycation is staying at home Sorry pet peeve

@Android2000, yes, no, maybe! People from outside the EU currently ski in the EU and there is no reason why this can't continue after Jan 1st. Tests on arrival in EU - why not, small price to pay to ski particularly as it would mean no quarantine. Nigel is predictably having a pop at the UK while conveniently ignoring France is having far more cases at the moment than here
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

I'm increasingly pessimistic there will be a ski season this year. Outside chance of Easter and late spring skiing but think Xmas/NY are definitely out and Feb half term a maybe. Hope I'm wrong That said plan is to book a crossing and leave to the last minute and hope for best

Will be the best snow ever for ski season - which many of us probably won’t be able to make due to Covid and associated restrictions
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

my worry is if France gets put on the list there will be a mad dash back by 1000’s of Brits Undoubtedly - we're lucky in that we can WFH so will stay 8) At moment my worry is quarantine will be announced today/tomorrow - at which point France will reciprocate I'm sure. I'm kind of hoping that that last point, the discussions around immigrants, Brexit discussions and general trade through Dover/Calais will mean France remains possible

Interesting question - if there is to be any sort of a ski season then there would need to be quarantine hotels set-aside in resorts for those with mild symptoms. Even with insurance covering repatriation etc would be a delay of a day or two With a potential 5 drivers in the family, I would be tempted to make a dash for home.

Well hardly surprising that France now imposes quarantine on people arriving from UK. That’s put French trip back to a no chance after it looking a possibility in recent days Oh well got 6-weeks until we have to cancel - anything could change.

@skimastaaah, the Brussels legal challenge is because we have only allowed France an exemption travel to UK and not all EU countries. It, they claims, breaches freedom of movement rules. They would be hard pushed to deny entry to EU from UK as the EU rules still apply until end 2020 As for visiting Europe in the autumn - I reckon England will still be part of Europe, unless there is a huge continental drift

The UK is second highest death rate globally (after USA) On numbers, but from your link in deaths per million we are behind Belgium, France, Italy and pretty much level with France

Total infections tested positive is 233,151 in the UK. Total deaths is 36,614. That's 14.42% I don't think you can read much into that though - as there are possibly millions who haven't been tested or died

Government policy seems to be based on what people are moaning about. So expect a rapid u-turn when everyone realises 14-days isolation coming to the UK will mean the same going anywhere else Waste of time in anycase, what they actually going to do? Hello will you self isolate when you leave the airport? Yes Ok thank you And how are they going to get to place of self isolation? Bus, train, taxi? By which time damage is done.

The 2-week quarantine period seems to only be for air travel. Of course it should have been done 2-months ago! I would hope common sense will prevail and UK/EU travel can continue in both ways. If not then the UK will be the biggest losers, at least BoJo will then change his mind when the public complain.

@ecureuil, I have nothing to base it on apart from gut feel, but if you took Brits out of places like 3V, Les Arcs etc I think it would leave a huge hole in finances for many. Hoping, and reasonably optimistic, for a late Jan trip

Nothing booked but generally only book around September time, by which time hope the situation will be clearer. Will take cancellation insurance out with apartments (assuming they still offer it) and as we drive are a little more relaxed on that - would only lose Eurotunnel. Always self-cater and rarely eat out, so not too bothered if we don't eat out at all

I may be completely wrong/clutching at straws but I think there will be calls to allow the UK to travel within EU Mainly as we do spend a lot in tourist areas Maybe not this year but I don’t think large parts of France will willingly lose a large percentage of tourists

Our campsites are all booked with the balance due on arrival, so will only lose deposit and ferry crossing worst case. Insurance may even cover it as I can’t find pandemic listed as exclusion.

@midgetbiker, that's what I thought and as UK not part of that assumed travel would be excluded @davidof, border may not be closed, but looking at Eurotunnel twitter feed they are saying no travel unless you have correct paperwork - so to all intents closed If the EU wants to exclude the UK from travel over the coming months it is understandable - although I do think there will be pressure from tourism sectors in many EU countries who want the money.

Tourism to stay shut till mid July - no TdF (as above) Frontiers extra-European will remain shut I saw the borders closed to non-EU comment and has been going around me head whether the UK will be excluded,as non EU, or permitted as sort of EU. If nothing else I can't help thinking banning UK would have a huge hit on French tourism sector!
