Be honest with yourself. How many skiing or snowboarding films have you binge watched in the past eight weeks of lockdown? The Book of Gnar on repeat? The entire Travis Rice backlog? Or did you go as far as watching the entire Whitelines Snowboard Movie World Cup? Need to get outside and go for a shred? We think you do.
Fear not, as all is not lost. News has begun to be released from many of the European ski resorts – who lost out on a large chuck of their winter seasons due to C-19 closures – that they’re going to soon be tentatively opening their glacial skiing and snowboarding to the public.
“They’re going to soon be tentatively opening their glacial skiing and snowboarding”
I must of course preface this with that fact that getting to many of the resorts is of course going to be a problem in this current state. Borders are currently closed and quarantine measures are in place for visitors. But, if you look at the reciprocal agreement for travel between the UK and France there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
If you do find yourself lucky enough to be skiing on a glacier this summer, then make sure you do keep yourself safe and away from the already stretched hospitals around the world. Stay alert, stay safe and save lives, and all that good stuff.
