A very tough time for alpine tourism...we all need to support each other as we come out of this crisis and into 2021 and 2022..

They need to open but limit the numbers as a compromise. Being as the average age of death in the UK is 83, most with 2 or more underlying comorbidities, I would strongly recommend some people forget skiing this season

Demonstrations on Les2Alpes but no Social Distancing. If wanting the chance to open this does not help at all

PlanetSKI.eu What are your thoughts guys on the growing unrest/protests in French ski resorts? Seems like ski businesses and workers in France are being especially quite vocal.

I'm all for their cause, but that looks like a super spreader event right there. If you're going to demonstrate, do it responsibly with appropriate distancing.

Judging by the amount of snow on the mountains in the background, I’m not sure they would be getting much skiing in.

NEWSFLASH There’s no bloody snow you knobs 🤣🤣
