Visiting Grand-Bornand (Haute-Savoie), Jean Castex detailed the outlines of the health protocol implemented from next week in the ski resorts.

"We agreed that there would be no health pass unless the national incidence rate exceeded 200 cases [per 100,000 population]," he said. Currently, it is around 60 cases per 100,000 population.

Wearing a mask will be compulsory on the ski lifts, including the chairlifts and in their queues.

Mountain professionals show their relief after the closures of the past year.

Alexandre Maulin, President of Domaines Skiables de France said "It was important to have a clear vision. We have rules, we will work with them in the best conditions".
