With this year’s early closing of Morzine’s ski season due to coronavirus, many are wondering if they’ll be able to make it to the slopes for the 2020/2021 skiing season. While it’s not certain, all the signs are pointing to a strong winter season that will be even bigger and better than the one before (there’s a lot of making up to do, after all).
As lock down restrictions across Europe continue to ease, the likelihood of a full 2020/2021 season in Morzine looks not only possible, but likely. Though certain precautions, such as some social distancing measures and sanitisation, may very well need to still be observed to a certain extent. The good news is however that many major ski travel agents and tour operators in the UK believe things next winter will be ‘business as usual’.
In support if this, it’s been reported that Christmas and New Year breaks in ski resorts are up 40% and 23% respectively, and bookings for flights for January 2021 is up 229% year-on-year. These stats show that people are keen to restart their lives and blow off some steam with a winter ski holiday.
With the early closure of this year’s ski season and the fact many missed out on summer holidays, many people will have plenty of annual leave, saved money during the lock down months and feel they need a break – all waiting to be used up for the winter ski season. So, what does this mean? Bigger, better and longer skiing holidays!
It’s also likely that trips this year and next are likely to include more party members of multiple generations to make up for the time families and friends couldn’t spend together during the height of the pandemic.
While 2020/2021 ski breaks in Morzine are on track to be the best yet, it’s unlikely coronavirus will be completely gone from our lives in time for the winter season. This is why it’s important to follow all travel advice while you’re away and book reputable holiday accommodation that takes its hygiene seriously.
