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 :-)

Hi, as you know the coronavirus is still happening. So is it safe to ski during this time? I meant the there might be no crowd but the virus likes it cold, just like the demodragon or the mind flayer in Stranger Things Very Happy How coincident! (Or not Very Happy)

@christianbale, is it safe to go for a walk/run/cycle in the park? If your answer to this is no, then perhaps you had better leaving the skiing to us. Toofy Grin

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Skiing is an outdoor activity, many people already wear a mask, there's space between people, and there's no prolonged contact with others on the slopes.
I think it is safe.

@christianbale, If folk behave in queues, and on the lifts and social distance it will likely be OK, it's a big IF though I think. The main issue will be getting there and being allowed into country of choice.

In my view it won't be happening anytime soon.....if you are planning going to the Alps, if Scotland then it should be safe from day 1 if you avoid gondolas, albeit much busier than normal i'd suggest.

If you are "safe" while skiing, you're doing it wrong.

I skied in April. As others have said above, IF people behave in lines, which will be very different, it will be fine. Back then, folks weren't totally with the program. By now, most people get it.

If it is to be, it is up to me. And you.

I'd say the ski-ing down the mountain bit is prob fine. It's the travelling to the mountain (planes, trains and ferries) and going up the mountain (queuing, cable cars, bubbles) that are potentially the risky bits, as well as coffee and lunch stops, mingling with all nationalities... Sadly, not for us this year, me-thinks...

One of the main issues is the fact that hospitals in the ski valleys are mostly full so the last thing needed is a load of skiers needing hospital treatment - for this reason alone I don't think the season will start as advertised!

@Ricky B, planes aren't a problem. Airports maybe.

@under a new name, I'm not sure we can agree that planes aren't a problem. They weren't called petri dishes with wings before covid for nothing. They are probably cleaning surfaces better than before but covid isn't the only thing to be concerned about. And airports? Definitely!

Then there are the several hundred idiots who have been banned from various airlines for not wearing a mask. Makes me feel like stoning people in the town square should make a comeback! I can't cast the first stone, but I'll be right behind!
