Skiing is just around the corner. Here, we are all mobilized to prepare the winter and welcome you in the best conditions.

"Pass sanitaire" / Health Pass

Good news! The ski lifts will definitely be open. However, with regard to how the pandemic may progress, the trigger threshold as outlined by the French government of 200 cases per 100,000 residents may be reached. If this is the case, the Health Pass will be compulsory to use the ski lifts and random verifications will be carried out during boarding.

As for the other leisure facilities (bars, restaurants, cinemas, museums, etc.), the national rules for France apply. As it stands, the Health Pass is required for anyone over the age of 12.

Masks must be worn while queueing for the ski lifts and in the cable cars.

Where can I get tested?

Menuires Medical Centre (open 7 days a week in winter) and the pharmacy in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville provide lateral flow tests with a reservation.

You can also book to get a PCR test at the Synlab laboratory in Moûtiers or by contacting one of the nurses in the valley on +33 7 86 26 46 02. It will be possible to do PCR tests this winter directly in Les Menuires (details to come).

Cancel at no cost

Accommodation providers are proposing flexible cancellation terms. On the website Les Menuires reservation, most of the proposed accommodation have “free cancellation” labels which means that you can cancel your booking until 8 days before your arrival date, if you do so for a reason linked to the health crisis.

Large areas and outdoor activities

The mountains are the ideal place to get away from it all and explore new horizons, far from the crowds of the big cities. The mountains offer a breath of fresh air to take time for yourself and your family.

Wearing masks

As from Friday 30th July, face masks are compulsory throughout the department of Savoie for anyone aged 11 and above, for the following purposes:

Masks must be worn while queueing for the ski lifts and in the cable cars.

Border control & Health Pass for foreigners

The digital Anti-Covid certificate issued by the EU is recognised across the whole of Europe, but each country is responsible for its own rules for entering the country, as they have not been standardised across Europe.

This means you will need to find out about the rules for entering your destination country before travelling (there and back).
