World Cup Summer Ski Jumping Programme Fri 06 & Sat 07 August 2021

This Friday & Saturday see the Le Praz round of the Summer Ski Jumping World Cup (live on Eurosport) with the Ladies jumping on Friday and the Men’s competition on Sunday. A total of 115 competitors from 15 countries are taking part.

A not to be missed event with big crowds watching the skiers land on the heavily watered, plastic “long astroturf” type matting – looks seriously scary and they appear to jump as far as they do on snow!

There’s a beer tent, entertainments and in the evening live music, DJ and fireworks. An air display featuring a US Air Force F86-Sabre, the Army Aerobatics Team and Adrenalin Flights take place each day from around 16:00.

Note that proof of Covid vaccination or recent negative test will be required using the TousAntiCovid App as a condition of entry following the latest French Government regulations for large events.

The NHS QR Codes can be uploaded to the French App but unfortunately the TAC Verif App used to check the code validity is not yet compatible. The NHS App or Paper certificates are acceptable – note from French Consulate General here.

UPDATE: 04/08/21: The French verification app (TAC Verif) now reads England NHS QR codes uploaded to the French TousAntiCovid App – although you could upload from the start of the week the verification app has just been updated to work with them.

You may need to regenerate NHS QR code and re-upload it to French App in case it has expired – they last a month.

Note that you must upload NHS QR codes to the French App, TAC Verif will not read direct from NHS App, Apple Wallet or Google Pay.
