f*ck no insurance

This is for the Tignes 2017/18 season https://www.tignes.net/uploads/media/default/0001/70/5dfde128a2638f6ab44efb2c2ba3672810fc63b3.pdf

400 euros per minute for a helicopter, 200 euros from bottom of piste to hospital, then of course all the repair costs, rehab/physio

Your link says 55.77 per minute, not 400, and that rate applies only if there's a doctor on board.
Without a doctor it's a flat fee of 377.01 on piste and 487.89 off piste.
Not all that outrageous.

In winter there is insurance available from the lift ticket offices (Snowrisk) on a daily basis (€3 / day) but not i'm not sure whether or not this is available during the summer to cover biking.

I bought my season ticket on Friday at the Pleney ticket office and asked about insurance, they said they don't do it in the summer.

Excellent thanks, I emailed them but hadn't yet received a reply.
Is it much quieter than usual? Hoping to be there in 3 weeks.

We have just booked the Eurotunnel for arrival on the 9th July for a week, then up to Winterberg and ferry back to hull. All accommodation booked and just waiting for the announcement of the 14 day quarantine to be relaxed.

Insurance quotes for my partner (travel, accident, bikes cover etc) are being sold and available online as normal.

it does feel pretty quiet at the moment, but more people are arriving and the town is beginning to feel a bit more alive (and with bars and restaurants opening up). When the quarantine gets lifted i imagine it will pick up even more.

Whats the deal with and how are they coping with the 1/2m distancing?

Anyone know if Snowcard will transfer my policy if I've rebooked my holiday for next year?

i've only ridden in Les Gets so far but masks on for all the lifts (and they enforce it) and the lifts only allow numbers that enable distancing (2 people only per chair on Chavannes for example). Restaurants, bars, shops have signs and markings out to show where you walk and how close to be to other people and most state that masks are mandatory.

Pleney - Not enforcing a mask - 2 people per cabin (normal)
Les Gets - Enforcing a mask as you get on and off the lift - 2 people per chair (normal)
Super Morzine - Enforcing a mask as you get on and off the lift - 2 people per cabin (normal)

Carrefour - No mask neccessary
Most shops including bakeries - No mask necessary

Restaurants, cafe's and bars - Supposed to be table service, mask required when standing up, not many enforcing it. 10 people max per table

Distancing largely being adhered to, but not enforced. Riding is just like normal, except you have a mask in your pocket incase.

Trails are running prime. Pleney never better, work happening everywhere in Les Gets.

As long as people who come obey the basic rules and wash their hands summer will be largely unchanged.
