It appears that the UK is not letting up with lockdown, although i think the announcement on 22nd will provide hope.
But by comparison, Europe is behind in terms of testing, vax'ing and getting cases down.
I estimate that they are 3 or so weeks behind the UK, and their regional case rate not good.
Uk in full lockdown still with cases per 100k around 110 ppl.
Last time i looked most of alps not even close to double that..??
So, would you want to travel even if you were allowed..??

All mute, but...?

I think the answer depends on who you are and how you travel. Plenty of younger, fitter people would think the risk is acceptable; plenty of older, less fit people would say no it isn't. There are just endless arguments on either side. There doesn't seem to be much evidence that there's much coronavirus transmission on the slopes or lifts when virus measures are in place; the problems come with hotels and restaurants, but again where these are properly managed infections seem rare, ...and much lower than in workplaces, on city centre public transport and other cramped areas that continue to operate. You can find countries like Norway and Finland where ski areas are open with common sense restrictions in place that have low virus rates and countries like France and Italy where ski resorts are closed but there and still high rates. So there are double standards I think and shutting ski areas is the easier decision for governments, popular with the majority of the population that don't ski, and makes them look like they're doing something.
