As a result of the Government announcement on Monday 12th October 2020, every part of England is now in one of three Covid-19 alert levels: Tier 1 (medium), Tier 2 (high) and Tier 3 (very high).
Following the introduction of this new tiered approach to restrictions in England, we have clarified with the Government how this will impact snowsport activity. Outdoor snowsport activity can continue in Tier 2 (High) and Tier 3 (Very High) areas in line with the current national guidelines, but there are additional restrictions on indoor snowsport activity in these areas. The Government’s guidance to avoid travel in or out of Tier 3 (Very High) areas also applies to snowsport activity.
To help understand what these rules mean for snowsport activity by tier, we have produced a summary grid, accessible via the link below:
Local Restrictions and the tiered Covid Alert system.
A list of areas in England in each tier, and the general rules in place for these can be read on the Gov.uk website:

We have also updated our other guidelines.
