Health measures for the winter season 2021/2022 in Les 3 Vallées

All 3 Vallées actors are ready to welcome you in the best possible conditions to make the most of this extraordinary territory.

These information have been updated following the latest government announcements (14-03-2022). Depending on the evolution of the epidemic, these information are likely to be modified.

ANNOUNCEMENTS OF 14/03/22 - END OF THE VACCINATION PASS AND THE WEARING OF A MASK INSIDE

Due to the improvement in the health situation, since March 14th, the application of the "vaccination pass" has been suspended in all places where it was required (leisure and cultural places, restaurants, fairs and trade shows, etc.).

However, the “health pass” remains in place in health establishments, retirement homes, establishments welcoming people with disabilities.

Wearing a mask is also no longer compulsory indoors except in public transport and health establishments.

WHAT CHANGES IN LES 3 VALLÉES?

On the ski area :

Vaccination and health passes are no longer compulsory in order to be able to access the ski lifts and restaurants on the 3 Vallées ski area.

Wearing a mask remains compulsory from the age of 6 in closed ski lifts: gondolas, cable cars and funitels.
It is no longer compulsory on chairlifts, drag lifts, carpets and when queuing at ski lifts, in point of sale...

It is nevertheless highly recommended when crowded in the embarkation and disembarkation areas, and when queueing for the ski lifts.

In the ski resort : 

Vaccination and health passes will therefore no longer be compulsory to access restaurants, bars and activities.

Wearing a mask is no longer compulsory anywhere in the resort with the exception of all public transport and health establishments.

Let's not forget the barrier gestures and all the good practices.


VACCINATION AND HEALTH PASS

REMINDER

The health pass was required for anyone aged 12 to 15.

The health pass consisted of the presentation, in digital or paper form, of one of the following three health proofs:

Vaccination, provided that a complete vaccination schedule is available ;

A negative test (PCR or antigen tests) less than 24 hours old ;

The result of a positive RT-PCR test attesting to the recovery of Covid-19, at least 11 days old and less than 6 months old. Please note that you must be able to present a QR Code.

To
know

What is the vaccination pass?

The "vaccination pass" consisted of the presentation of one of these three proofs:

Vaccination certification (complete vaccination schedule, booster dose included in the time limit for people from 18 years and 1 month who are eligible).
For 16-17 year olds, booster doses are not compulsory: "The vaccination pass will be valid subject to a complete primary vaccination schedule", says the Ministry of Health ;

Certificate of Reinstatement more than 11 days and less than 6 months old. Note that you must be able to show a QR Code ;

Certificate of contraindication to vaccination. The persons concerned are thus issued a document by their doctor that can be presented in places where the "vaccination pass" is required.

A derogation allowing the use of a negative test certificate of less than 24 hours as part of the "vaccination pass" will be possible until February 15 for people who have received their first dose of vaccine by then, pending their second dose.

Please note: the "vaccination pass" did not apply to minors aged 12 to 15. It is therefore the "health pass" - which includes the additional possibility of presenting proof of a negative test of less than 24 hours - which remains in place for this age group.

FOR TRAVELLERS FROM UNITED KINGDOM

From 14th January travel conditions are easier between the United Kingdom and France for vaccinated people.

Faced with the predominance of the Omicron variant both in France and in the United Kingdom, the Government has chosen to ease the specific health control measures at the borders which had been decided last December for vaccinated travelers from the United Kingdom.
