Covid-19 Information Everything you need to know about Covid-19 and your Ski Gathering holiday.

Last Updated: 16 September 2020

Here at The Ski Gathering we have been working hard to ensure you can go on a safe solo ski holiday this coming season. We have been working with our partners to come up with a robust plan for dealing with Covid issues both before your holiday and in resort.

As you may be aware we have a different accommodation partner in each resort. This means that the terms and condition of your booking may differ slightly from resort to resort. We have laid out the details for what will happen in each resort below.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to to get in touch.

Covid Rooming Update:

We have reduced the types of room types that we offer for the 2020-2021 season.

We now have three different room types:

  1. Single Rooms: Theses rooms will be occupied by just one person and will have either a private bathroom or an en-suite.
  2. Budget Single: These rooms will be occupied by just one person but will have a shared bathroom.
  3. Twin Rooms: These rooms can only be occupied by two people who are from the same household or are travelling together. They will have a private bathroom or en-suite.
