Hi we are skiing in March, and trying to get to grips with all the regulations re covid. Anyone currently out there or going soon that could give some pointers please? We're all triple vaccinated flying via Geneva. I understand the declarations you need to complete but it's obtaining the "pass sanitaire" with ski pass I'm confused about. Is it just our vaccination certificates from NHS we show with ski pass to get on the lifts and in restaurants. I've read a few articles that say we need to go to a pharmacy to get this authenticated , some implying daily testing required . A lot of the article seem ambiguous. I've seen one saying it's just if you are from certain countries and others that are vague. Really appreciate any advice. Sorry if it's been asked before .

There's some discussion here https://www.j2ski.com/ski-chat-forum/posts/list/0/19884/testing-12-14-year-olds.page - I think Iain's probably got the best idea of how things stand right now, but they may (hopefully) get simpler by March!

That help (hopefully it does, as that looks like THE official rules).

On 24. Jan. the "Pass sanitaire" was replaced by the "Pass vaccinal" for people aged 16 and over. UK Covid-19 certificates have been accepted by the EU as being equivalent to the EU Digital Covid Certificate https://ec.europa.eu/info/live-work-travel-eu/coronavirus-response/safe-covid-19-vaccines-europeans/eu-digital-covid-certificate_en#recognition-by-the-eu-of-covid-certificates-issued-by-third-non-eu-countries click on " EU equivalence decisions" if you want to see the decision for the UK.

So, providing that your current vaccination certificate is no more than 270 days old (from 1. Feb. Covid vaccination certificates will only be valid for 270 days in the EU) your NHS Covid pass app / letter should work. As you will have show your Covid pass to use the lifts it would be a good idea to print out the QR code and laminate it, just in case your phone dies.

If you want to check that everything is ok before you go you could install TAC Verif, the French governments Covid certificate verification app on another smartphone.

The link provided by Tignes only applies to people "Not having been vaccinated in one of the following countries: European Union member states, Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Cape Verde, El Salvador, Faroe Islands, Georgia, Iceland, Israel, Lebanon, Liechtenstein, Northern Macedonia, Moldavia, Morocco, Monaco, Montenegro, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, San Marino, Serbia, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, or the Vatican."

doesn't take much to confuse me. My sister just sent me a link to Crystals page which sets it all out. Didn't think to look there as we've booked independently. Now need a massive snow dump in early March followed by sun and blue skies.
