Are you ready to get back on the slopes for that wonderful feeling of freedom once again?
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 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.

Protocol applicable as of 9 February 2022 on ski lifts:

  • It is still compulsory from the age of 6 on closed lifts (cable cars, gondolas…) and in access queues which are held in enclosed areas.
  • It is no longer necessary to wear a mask on chairlifts and ski lifts.
  • It is recommended from the age of 6, in outdoor groupings at the foot of lifts.

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 / health protocol

In accordance with decisions made by the French government and the ski resorts, since December 4th, 2021 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, the territory of 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.

To keep up-to-date with the number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants:

Health/Vaccine pass

• Since January 24th, 2022, the “vaccine pass” has been compulsory for access to ski lifts. It concerns all people aged 16 and over.
• The possession of the “health pass” (complete vaccination cycle + 7 days OR RT-PCR test OR antigenic test of less than 24 hours OR certificate of recovery) remains mandatory from 12 years old and 2 months and until 15 years old (included).

Controls will be carried out in the departure areas of the ski lifts by the operator or any person authorized for this purpose, but also by the police.

In case of non-compliance, the user will be refused access to the ski area and his or her skipass will be invalidated by the operator until a valid health pass is presented at the point of sale.
