School Holidays now over but loads of activities available across The 3 Valleys
This strange ski season continues with lots of skiing and other mountain activities on offer. You can drive up to the Altiport and ski down, hike, snow shoe, ski tour or cross country ski to the many mountain restaurants that are open, while kids ski schools are still operating and some “magic carpet” lifts are allowed (in Val Thorens it appears anyone can use them), terraces are open at bars & restaurants with “standing up” tables too, the ski buses are rammed (suspended daytime in Meribel) but you can’t have an individual chairlift…
Meanwhile France has imposed some weekend lockdowns in certain areas but are hoping that the curfew and vaccine will prevent a national lockdown being needed. However infection rates have plateaued and the vaccine rate nationally is pitifully slow (to be fair though all the over 50 residents in La Tania will receive their first jab this week).
