As France opens up for tourism again, the mountains are a tempting option for those who'd rather get away from it all expecially covidiots crowded on the beaches in the south.
Of course, it's the mountains so warm weather and cloudless skies are not guaranteed. But there is so much choice of exercise - hiking, cycling, mountain biking, kyaking, swimming or doing SUP yoga on the mountain lakes, the list goes on. It's just a case of adapting your clothes and toys to the weather.
This is about the time we all start thinking about next winter with the start of the six months countdown. Will it be an epic powder season? Currently, though, more concerning is whether the coronavirus pandemic will be over or we'll have a vaccine - and will the travel situation and ski resorts really be back to normal? Is it sensible to book now before the prices go up? We've looked into a rather murky crystal ball (and asked some experts including Simon Hudson, Tourism Professor and author of the upcoming book COVID-19 & TRAVEL) to come up with a picture of what to expect for winter 2020-2021. Read all about it here.
And check out the (Ski) Blog for regular lockdown updates here in the French Alps at Style Altitude HQ plus dispatches from Louise Hudson in Canada, Chris Tomlinson in the UK and Josefine As from a small village above La Grave.. Also keep up with those powder hounds, the Rando Chiens, via the dog's blog!
