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 :-)

I'd take the money and book for next year.

The closures across Italy are just the start and given 2 more weeks, I can see France and Austria being in similar positions. Of course, may not but it's a gamble.

That assumes they will still be in business though, which is also a gamble. Take the money.

@Nadenoodlee, yep. It may well be fine, but they’re hedging a probably quite small price increase over a 100% loss, (or at least a load of hassle trying to get money back) which makes no sense to me.

@Savory, from your perspective the only real option is to get whatever refund you can. I run a business and at the moment we are in a situation where we need to get any income we can through the door, hundreds of other businesses are in exactly the same situation, I guess Espirit will do all they can to get you to book for next year. I would hope we are in a far better position to ride this out than medium sized tourist companies reliant on ski tourism, most of those will go (sorry but that is the reality of all this). Assuming it will be possible if you want a ski holiday this year book another one in Switzerland or Austria. Flights are stupidly cheap and you will be able get last minute accommodation. Book just before you go to minimise risk.

Not a case of judtcrebooking for this year elsewhere as we have a 2 & 4 year old so need good childcare.

It's a good compact resort fine for a week currently great snow too. If you don't want the money or it's not on offer it'll be ideal for a week with little ones.

We are going to travel restrictions through out Europe...
You might get somewhere but will struggle to get back.... As in people stranded in Italy.
So avoid changing plans as so uncertain

Alas I fear that’s coming too. Looking at the impact in Italy from reacting slowly I can’t believe the other Euro countries aren’t going to react faster. Téléverbier are saying not to worry but I don’t buy it. People are still coming from Italy as they aren’t closing the road borders and I suspect it’s only a matter of time... Really hope I’m wrong

It seems there are many hospital workers etc in Ticino commuting from Italy hence not closing road borders to Italy. They are not testing suspected mild cases so infection rates are going to be seriously understated.

La Ros is great resort for kids, and the esprit setup clustered around the nursery slope makes everything pretty easy. Frankly skiing over to Italy is underwhelming anyway and a ball ache with crappy drag lifts to get you there.
But what happens if you take the deal, go there, and then they close all the ski resorts send you home. You dont get your money back and you got half a ski holiday. I think I’d struggle not to gamble on skiing now but there must be a non zero chance of a shut down in next two weeks....
