The protocol for access to ski resorts for the coming season, which provides in particular for the wearing of a mask and social distancing, has been validated by the government of France, Domaines skiables de France (DSF) reported on Monday.
Applicable to the 250 French ski resorts for the 2021-2022 season, this protocol makes it compulsory to wear a “surgical mask” from 11 years old on “all ski lifts” and their “queues”, details DSF in a press release.
The protocol also “recommends” the wearing of a mask for children aged six to 11 when using the ski lifts. On the other hand, it does not make it compulsory for any skier “while skiing”.
No health pass for the moment
DSF recalls that this protocol is “subject to changes in the health situation” and the announcement will be made “no later than the following Saturday”.
