The summer season is already over and 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. And you won’t even need a Health Pass! However, the French government has said that this could change if the situation should take a turn for the worse.
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.
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.
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 (0)7 86 26 46 02.
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.
As from Friday 30th July, face masks are compulsory throughout the department of Savoie for anyone aged 11 and above, for the following purposes:
- to join gatherings, meetings or activities organised on the public highway or at venues open to the public, whenever this leads to concentrations of more than 10 people;
- at markets, bric-a-brac sales, car-boot sales or similar activities;
- in any queue forming outside a stadium, auditorium, projection room, sports facility, marquee, games room, museum, station, shop or cultural venue.
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).
