Can you go skiing this winter?
Skiing is possible this winter, depending on where you intend to go skiing.
In Austria, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said it was “not a matter in which the EU should interfere”.
The country is currently in lockdown and this lockdown will end on Sunday, December 6.
Ski resorts are currently expected to reopen from that time, as long as they adhere to Covid-secure procedures.
Many ski resorts in Austria are hoping to reopen from December 19, however, many have already opened but have been closed to the general public due to the current lockdown restrictions.
Authorities in Austria have warned full closure is possible, but have demanded compensation from the EU for this enforced closure.
