There are now over a dozen resorts open in the Alps, but they are really only for locals due to coronavirus restrictions.

Borders are open, but there are quarantine and self-isolation requirements in place.

Going into Italy from the UK requires a negative test for Covid-19.

On the way back there is a 14-day quarantine requirement.

Austria has the most resorts open: Hintertux, Stubai, Soelden, Kaprun, Pitztal, Kaunertal, Dachstein and Mölltal.

In Switzerland there is skiing in Zermatt, Saas-Fee, Glacier 3000 and Diavolezza near St Moritz.
