Ukraine's biggest resort of Bukovel has been shut down following a spike in virus infections in recent weeks. Only people living locally are allowed to move around within the resort.
The resort has been declared a 'red zone' for infections with cases reported to be currently rising there.
"It was decided to terminate the activities of the Bukovel resort. Tourists will not be able to visit it. If you are a tourist, then you must understand that you are not going to Bukovel," said Andriy Boichuk, the head of the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional State Administration.
Other ski areas that have been hit by COVID outbreaks this winter include Big White in BC, Winter Park in Colorado, Nakiska in Alberta, Stowe in Vermont and St Moritz and Wengen in Switzerland.
However in all cases it is believed the outbreaks were contained within individual buildings within the resorts – usually staff accommodation or hotels and resorts have carried on operating.
Big White recently celebrated no infections being announced having peaked at around 100 in staff accommodation earlier in the year.
