The fresh powder snow is waiting for you, to kick off a season that is already shaping up to be a memorable one! You’ll soon be able to experience the joys of the slopes, the delicious food of the mountains and the great feeling of a day in the fresh mountain air.
The excitement of getting back on the skis has already taken over Oisans, and everyone is eagerly awaiting your arrival. For the past few months, everything has been done so that the necessary restrictions related to the current health pandemic don’t ruin your holiday. Here is the latest information you need to know.
Ski lifts and health & safety protocol
To make sure everyone can enjoy the activities and entertainment on offer at the resorts of Oisans, while at the same time ensuring everyone’s protection, here is what you need to pack (or have available on your phone) before coming:
Face coverings are now just as important as your helmet!
Make sure you bring enough face masks which are compulsory indoors, for leisure activities and in shops, while queuing and on the ski lifts (cable cars, lifts, chair lifts, etc.). Don’t worry, you can take them off as soon as you’re ready to ski down the slopes, or begin any other sports activity. However, local authorities might decide to impose face masks at all times during very busy periods.
As for helmets, they are not compulsory but very important in the event of a collision, so we highly recommend you come equipped…
Health pass and health & safety protocol
In accordance with decisions made by the French government and the ski resorts, the health pass will become compulsory for the ski lifts if the number of cases per 100,000 people goes above 200 in Isère.
Since the 29th November 2021, Isère has exceeded 200 cases for 100,000 inhabitants, meaning that the health pass is now compulsory to be able to use the ski lifts.

So there you have it, there are no big changes to think about while you’re packing your suitcases, apart from bringing face masks and hand sanitizer. All that’s left to do after that is get out on the slopes and have some fun!
Keep in mind the health & safety measures and social distancing rules, that will protect you from any possible contamination, as well as from collisions with other skiers out on the slopes!
