With parts of Northern Italy affected by the coronavirus PlanetSKI reports from the Aosta Valley in the Alps. Read our full report as the UK government issues new advice for Britons returning from Italian Alps & Dolomites www.planetski.eu/2020/02/25/new-coronavirus-advice-for-skiers-in-italy/ ...

Comment on Facebook

There have been no reported cases in the areas anywhere near the Piemonte resorts (Vialattea) and neighbouring French resorts like Montgenevre and Serre Chevalier. Every British tour operator is still taking bookings with some hotels fully booked and its snowing in the Vialattea at the moment. Schools locally have closed for an extra 2 days as it is Italian holidays here anyway and are due to reopen on Monday or Tuesday!! Italian school trips to the mountains are due to start back from Tuesday next week. Absolutely nothing to worry about.

See you in Pila then!

Maybe they will soon quarantine you too

CLIMATE CHANGE COULD LEAD TO TENS OF THOUSANDS OF JOB LOSSES IN WINTER TOURISM

Two new reports make grim reading for those involved in winter tourism. The future looks bleak, but there is some hope.

AVOIDING  THE CROWDS IN THE AOSTA VALLEY: TORGNON

In half-term week many resorts across the Alps suffer from busy slopes and long lift queues. Er, not where PlanetSKI has been skiing.

PLANETSKI SNOW REPORT

Snow conditions in the Alps have been mixed but snow is on its way after some very warm weather. There is no natural snow below about 1200m which is unusual for mid February. In general there is a lot of snow and good skiing at altitude. UPDATED

GB WORLD CUP WINNING SKIER ROWAN CHESHIRE RETIRES

The freestyle skier, Winter Olympian and former junior World Championships medallist is retiring from competition for health reasons. She is just 24. Her former team mates pay tribute.

HOW TO AVOID LIFT QUEUES

It’s busy out on the slopes at the moment with the half-term break in full swing. Our friends at Maison Sport offer some advice on how to avoid the queues.

PLANETSKI TESTS THE NEW WEDZE SKIS FROM DECATHLON

We’ve been putting them through their paces on the steeps of Argentière. They’re now competing with the big boys at a fraction of the price.

FOUR TOP WAYS FOR KIDS TO CARRY THEIR SKIS

It’s half-term week and that means kids on the slopes. So how should they carry their skis? Our friends over at Maison Sport have been offering their advice.

PLANETSKI FEATURES

ALPINE ACTION IN THE AOSTA VALLEY

It is home to some of the most famous resorts in Italy. Cervinia, Courmayeur & Champolouc to name a few.  PlanetSKI is based there from next month & here we look at some of this winter’s attractions.

SKI LINE, THE SKI EXPERTS

Ski Line doesn’t offer cruises or city breaks, it just does skiing and snowboarding. It was founded 25 years ago and continues to go from strength to strength.

FANCY SKIING IN VOSS IN NORWAY?

It has just got a whole load easier as the resort joins the Norway, Home of Skiing group. Norway is a particular favourite of ours at PlanetSKI.

ADVENTURES IN JASNA WITH JASNA ADVENTURES

The resort in Slovakia offer great skiing, great prices and much more besides. Jasna Adventures is the company to visit with.

6 QUIRKY SNOW EXPERIENCES IN NORTH AMERICA

Six ski resorts, six different experiences. Something to think about when planning your ski trip to the USA or Canada.

POSTCARD FROM NASSFELD

The Austrian resort has more than a little bit of Italy in it.  Sounds like a good combination to us. And it is.

IS THIS THE WINTER TO TRY CLUB MED?

It’s a marmite holiday – you’ll either love it or hate it. Most love it. One UK agent reports 98% of clients re-book.

WANT TO SAVE MONEY ON YOUR SKI GEAR?

Look no further than Decathlon and its own brand of Wedze. Good gear with affordable prices to match.

IS THIS THE WINTER TO SKI IN JAPAN?

Japan is home to some of the best powder skiing on the planet. Read here about the skiing in Japan holidays offered by Mabey Ski as snow finally falls.
