2021 List of Winter Leisures
It’s officially winter, and places all over the country of Europe have already received plenty of snow.
WINTER SEASON is not yet over! A multitude of activities awaits you for an unforgettable stay in the mountains this winter, with or without ski!
Enjoy the outdoors (socially distanced)
▪︎ Hiking and snowshoeing: If you’re looking for a way to stay in shape even when the snow falls, snowshoeing is an excellent low-impact aerobic exercise. Several footpaths and snowshoeing trails are still set up for sure, you just need to find the right place.
▪︎ Cross-country skiing: If you are in any Ski stations, it is easy to find a trail map online through their websites as they keep everyone informed and updated.
▪︎ Lace-up your skates! You probably don’t even have to leave town to go ice skating. In cities all across the country, ice skating rinks pop up during winter — you might even find a rink at your home.
▪︎ Snowmobile: Are you a non-skier? You might love this idea! Snowmobiles could be one of your hobbies once you've tried it.
▪︎ Dog Sled: how can you not love to be with cute Siberian Huskies, Samoyed or even an Alaskan Malamute?

➡️Update – France's ski resorts will not be able to reopen on the first week of January as initially planned, France's Secretary of State for tourism confirmed on Wednesday, 6th of January 2021.
Unlike neighbouring Switzerland, France has kept its ski resorts closed since the end of lockdown in early December. At the moment, the French ski stations are not able to open the ski lifts and all other infrastructure had to keep shut, ruling out most winter sports. Don’t worry– You won’t need to stay inside your home for the duration of the season.
Riviera Luxury Rentals have also prepared the best ski chalets that we could offer for your perfect stay during the winter season.
