6 top tips for staying safe on a ski holiday during covid-19

As we all know, our lives have changed as a result of the COVID-19 virus, which means that we need to be more careful not to get sick. Because winter is here and your skiing holidays are long awaited, you must not forget the main protection measures against the virus, and I will present to you 6 simple methods by which you will be able to protect yourself and your family. This way you will have a safe ski holiday.

Sanitiser in your pocket

It’s the easiest way to protect yourself from viruses. It should not be missing from your pocket even if you are on the slope. You can use it at any time when you need to disinfect your hands, such as before eating or after touching various objects. Door handles, credit card devices, or food trays can be full of bacteria and viruses, and a small container of sanitiser it’s a must on a Covid ski holiday.

Don’t forget your neck warmer or balaclava

The most exposed parts of the body for viruses are the hands. They come in contact with many objects, and even if we cover them with gloves when we are outside, we are still not completely protected. Children are most likely to touch their face or mouth with dirty gloves. To avoid situations where we can touch our nose or mouth with dirty gloves, a neck warmer or balaclava  are very effective. In addition to the protection against the virus, they protect you from the cold, and you can enjoy your safe ski holiday.

Keep the distance in the chairlift

The biggest attraction of the ski slopes are the chairlifts. Many resorts offer different protection protocols that consist of a small number of people that are allowed in a closed or a crowded space. However, it is recommended to share the chairlift with people that you know and are not infected with the COVID-19 virus.

Avoid the busiest hours

It is good to know that in certain periods of time ski resorts can be very crowded. You also need to plan your shopping trips carefully. To avoid the busiest hours it is good to go shopping before 10:00 and between 16:00 – 18:00.

Consider your restaurant options

Restaurants are an important aspect of skiing holidays. On a Covid ski holiday  it is recommended to check the protection protocols against the virus and to make a reservation in time. A crowded restaurant means waiting longer to eat and staying in touch with many people, which is not indicated during this period.

Book private services

Lastly, another way to protect yourself is to choose private ski lessons. You will feel much safer if you have a private ski lesson, instead of being part of a group of 10 people you don’t know. This way you will get in touch with fewer people, which will mean a lower risk of coming into contact with COVID-19 virus and you will have a safe ski holiday.
