The 2020/2021 ski season is about to get underway across Europe and North America. With significant amounts of snow falling early this year some resorts have opened earlier than ever but some are still dealing with Covid 19 restrictions. A few of the resorts which chose to open earlier have had to temporarily close due to enhanced restrictions being imposed. Check out our status report below for which resorts are open, when temporary restrictions are due to be lifted and where you can travel to by private jet for skiing in 2021.
Leading the way with opening, Switzerland has the highest number of resorts open at the time of writing. Authorities are planning for a normal opening timetable as the snow arrives. Switzerland has avoided a winter national lockdown so resorts across the country are ready to make the most of the early snowfall. Swiss Ski centres that are currently open have strict measures in place to prevent any spread of Covid 19.
Normally opening mid December, the exact timing of French ski resorts opening this season is subject to the end of a second national lockdown, now expected in January. While the glacier resorts of Les Deux Alps and Tignes had already opened, unfortunately they were forced to close temporarily. Val Thorens had originally targeted an opening date of 21st of November which has also had to delay to in line with the rest of the countries resorts.
Austrian resorts are planning for a normal operation for the 2020-2021 ski season. Nine ski centres had opened in October but have since had to temporarily close due to a second national lockdown being imposed. Similar to France, the majority of areas usually open mid December so are on track to open in line with restrictions easing at the start of December. One of Austria’s largest ski resorts, Ischgl, has also confirmed that it doesn’t plan to open now until mid-December.
Italy’s ski season was gathering pace in October after four areas were opened with fantastic conditions due to continued early snowfall. Similar to Austria, unfortunately Italy has been subject to enhanced restrictions due to Covid 19 and resorts which were open were forced to close for a month on the 27th of October. Considering how hard northern Italy was hit during the first wave of the pandemic, it’s currently unclear whether resorts will open in mid December.
A number of resorts in Canada and the United States have begun to open. Mammoth Mountain in California, Lookout Pass in Idaho and Cypress Mountain in BC, Canada being some of the first. High demand in Canada and Colorado is seeing a limited number of tickets selling out which is expected to ease as more resorts open. Canadian ski centres are operating with stricter restrictions than in Europe such as fewer skiers on the mountain and on lifts in addition to social distancing.

Across Europe and the world, there are still travel restrictions in place due to the Coronavirus outbreak but we are regularly asked, where can I go skiing in 2021?
Resorts across Europe are expecting and planning for the ski season to go ahead with social distancing and additional precautions at hotels and bars. But where Covid 19 travel restrictions remain in place it can be difficult to select and commit to a particular resort. All hope is not lost though as there are many resorts across Europe which you might not know about.
In south west on the Austrian border there is a little piece of Germany which catches the edge of the Alps. At Oberstdorf within the Allgauer Hochalpen Nature Reserve you’ll find the usual alpine scene. Oberstdorf has over 130km of slopes and 70km of cross country routes to enjoy. There’s even a ski jump and toboggan run for the thrill seekers.
Yes! Scotland really does have real snow ski resorts, in fact there are 5 locations you can visit to ski in Scotland. While the official season runs December to April similar to central Europe, the best snow is often found in January to February. Glenshee Ski Centre is the largest resort and there are 22 lifts serving over 40km of piste to enjoy. Cairngorm is the highest resort and has 30km of pisted runs and also has a terrain park with jumps and pipes for freestyle skiing and snowboarding.
Home to 28 smaller resorts, Serbia has 97 kilometres of runs to enjoy. Kopaonik is the largest resort with 55 of the 97 kilometres split across blue red and black runs. You can expect typical Balkan value with a ski trip to Serbia, skiing, accomodation and apres are all well priced and will be unique in style.
As glamourous as the most expensive Alpine resorts but effortlessly cool in true Nordic fashion, skiing at the Swedish resort of Are is a brilliant proposition. In true Scandi style, slopes are quiet and skiers are polite but scenery and experience are still fantastic. Snow comfortably stays on the slopes until mid May and even though the days are short in December and January sophisticated floodlighting keeps the slopes open until mid afternoon.

With the 2020 Ski and Covid 19 the season was forced to be cut short due to the outbreak. Recently, with the winter fast approaching, many people across Europe have been asking us, will I be able to go skiing in 2021?
Resorts across Europe are actively taking positive actions to keep skiers and snowboarders safe. Requirements such as face masks and hand sanitiser which are now familiar with us all will be in place on the slopes. Additionally, chalets and hotels are adapting and some are even providing contact-free check in, manned buffets and regular testing of staff. You might even find the slopes a little quieter in 2021 as some resorts are limiting hotels and chalets to 70% capacity to aid with social distancing.
Many resorts are going the extra mile working with local governments and tourism boards to create the safest environments possible. Enhanced testing regimes are being rolled out for employees of accommodation providers, restaurants and lift/transport workers. Ski Lifts and Cable Cars will be regularly disinfected and have a reduced capacity likely limited to one group/household. Expect table service in bars and restaurants and Apres Ski to be mainly outside in the fresh air.
The 2021 Ski Season is expected to go ahead despite Covid 19 and flying by private jet in 2021 will help keep your group safe while also providing the usual benefits. Travel in an aircraft dedicated for your party which has been fully sanitised between each trip. Reduce your overall travel time by using private terminals meaning you can arrive at the airport 15 minutes before departure.
