Your next ski holiday may look a little different from what you are used to, but at the end of the day, the mountains are still there and the snow will still fall and cruising down your favourite run on a crisp, bluebird day will still be as good as ever before. Probably even better!
We want to make sure that we are doing everything possible to ensure that everyone is safe and comfortable on their ski
holiday, so we have outlined some resources which may be helpful to you when planning your next ski trip.
The EU Traffic Light System
The EU Traffic Light System categorises European countries and the regions within those countries, as green, orange or red, depending on the Covid-19 risk level.The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) will publish a weekly map determined by the 14-day incidence and positivity rates of the disease. The system is based on data published by the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC).

Each member state decides what entry restrictions or requirements will apply to travellers coming from red, orange and green regions. Since mid-January 2021, all passengers arriving into Ireland must have a negative or not detected COVID-19 PCR test, taken within 72 hours prior to arrival in Ireland. Passengers arriving from red or grey list regions - as defined by the EU traffic light system, should also restrict their movements for 14 days after arrival. There is also a mandatory quarantine list which travellers should also keep up to date with. Travellers arriving into Northern Ireland will also have to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival.
