Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

Skiers given quarantine exemption as Switzerland reverses COVID-19 restrictions before for Alpine Ski World Cup in St Moritz

Skiers have been given a quarantine exemption for the upcoming International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Ski World Cup in St Moritz on Saturday (December 11) and Sunday.

After Switzerland updated its COVID-19 restrictions meaning those entering the country from 12 countries, including Canada - where the last FIS Alpine Ski World Cup in Lake Louise, was held - had to conduct a 10-day mandatory quarantine, the World Cup going ahead was thrown into doubt.

The FIS announced it had secured a quarantine exemption for athletes from the countries included, stating the canton of Graubünden "granted participants exceptional entry into Switzerland".

The FIS said the exemptions mean "people who are necessary for the races are permitted to travel to St. Moritz without a 10-day quarantine period."

However, the Swiss quarantine rules were since reversed, meaning the World Cup is free to go ahead without any COVID-19 international travel restrictions.

Announcing the decision to scrap the mandatory 10-day quarantine, Swiss Health Minister Alain Berset said it "no longer made sense to maintain quarantine for people coming from countries where this variant is circulating, because it’s also circulating here."
