    Reely.

    Anyway, if Benny is asking a specific question regarding his highly specific individual situation relative to his cheapskate need to maximize his Ikon pass in Europe by staying entirely within Italy, therefore requiring an Italian "green pass", I suppose he's on his own, unless anyone else has useful beta.

    Good luck mang, and please report back to the rest of us to help the collective.



    Now you're starting to sound like that hippie from SLC.

    Insults, and no answers. Oh, and you must be another TGR trustfunder that doesnt have to be a "cheapskate" (although that's not why I'm going to the Dolomites, I just want to be there), just jet off to Switzerland and circle jerk with the cool people.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    Lulz.

    Trustfunder, yep. I usedta hang out with Ghislaine before she met Jeff, fuct her when she was in boarding school. Realized she was freaky even then.

    How about this:

    Get your fucking CH COVID19 certificate online, fly into Zurich, take the train to Corvara, use your precious Ikon pass, fly outta Zurich or Milan.

    Easy peasy. Jeezus.

    There is no train to Corvara.

    There is no fucking "online registration" for a green pass for Americans, for the twentieth time.

    LOLOLOL for the twentieth time, yes I know that.

    Which is why, for the not-quite-twentieth time, I'm mentioning the Swiss option, which to my knowledge, is the ONLY online way for an American to get a SARS CoV2 vaccination pass recognized in the EU, at least for the time being. Others please correct me if I'm wrong or if this changes in the future.

    No direct trains from ZRH to Corvara yeah, but honestly no direct trains from any airport AFAIK. Google maps seems to have a route through Bruneck via Innsbruck. Or you could take the direct train from Zürich to Milan and go from there.

    Do I have to do everything for you?

The site is easy to navigate and straightforward. They charge 30 CHF, but get back to you promptly, very Swiss.

    The Swiss pass is good in the rest of the EU due to reciprocity.
    I don't understand what this mechanism lacks with regard to skiing in Italy or elsewhere in the EU.
    No matter what. there is some indeterminacy, it's true. It's what I'm doing as well.

    Now the Dolomites are cool and all, but there's a whole lot of good skiing across the Alps, even Zermatt, also covered by IKON for 7 days.

    Regarding access, there's a fantastic train route from Salzburg through Bad Gastein, which is a very cool old spa resort with good skiing, then through a tunnel to Malnitz and on to Spittal and then Lienz, Fortezza, then Ponte Gardena/Waidbruck. Or you can hop off at Sillian or San Candido to go to the Dolomites from the North. Or take the train from Innsbruck over the Brenner pass to Ponte Gardena.

    We already have a Covid pass that the EU recognizes! Our CDC card is supposedly valid where green passes are required. Although, ahem, I wonder about that in some circumstances. So, why should I do this thing in Switzerland? I'm talking about having the ease and convenience of a digital pass married with the digital Dolomiti ski pass. They want the ski pass activated EVERY DAY with the QR code in the app. Thats easy peasy on the phone if you have a green pass. Otherwise, I have to go stand in line at the ticket office EVERY DAY with my CDC card to activate my pass. As it stands now. Who knows in a few months.

    Our American CDC paper card is "supposedly" valid abroad, which is why I'm bringing mine. But it seems Europe utilizes the digital passes to a great extent, and who knows, some ticket checker or shopkeeper may be suspicious of some 'Murikan piece of paper they don't know the provenance of.

    Which is why I'm getting a digital pass as well, even though it's Swiss.

    You're looking for "ease and convenience" and wanting everything spoon fed to you, and complaining about entitled trustfunders. Heh.

    From Italia.it

    “Certificates issued by the Health Authorities of Canada, Japan, Israel, the United Kingdom and the United States are considered equivalent to the EU Digital COVID Certificate and therefore allow access to all services and activities listed in this section.”

    Pay 30 CHF to get a Swiss Vax Cert online. That is all it takes.

    There is risk. Some of us accept that. Some don't. It's OK. I kind of gravitate towards risk.

    Hasn't beer30 iterated that he got his IT green pass by going into a pharmacy? I think he said he was skiing in Kronplatz Italy last week.

    This is what I mean. Nobody reads. Nobody can follow a train of thought anymore. Is it the drugs? Alcohol? Staring at phones?

    I'll help. It isn't like Amazon. You have to establish an itinerary in Switzerland, which requires at least a flight in, maybe round trip (?), and at least lying about where you will be for the time you're there.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    Yeah, but Benny wants the address and directions to said pharmacy, as well as a phonetic English-to-Italian translation for the request for the digital green pass.

    beer30, you got the goods?

    He lives over there.

    But, the last I heard from him, he told me to call a pharmacy. In Italy. Really.

    To accuse your perceived enemies of that of which you are guilty. Classic.

    No he doesn't.
    He's an ex-pat who spends time in JH as well as Yurp.

    He may even be a trust funder, but he visits Yurp in winter and explicitly wrote that he went into a pharmacy in IT to get his green pass.
    Kronplatz is on the train itinerary I mentioned, it's Bruneck.

    People have been kind and try to help and honestly, you're just a hysterical bitch. Grow up.

    So he's another stateless one, like Amsterdam dude with no ski equipment. If only.

    Oh, and fuck off, too, if you insist with that last comment. I've only encountered snooty insults from most here, not good advice.

    That footage has got to be from last season- looks like M.

    On the subject of our beloved station of Ovronaz. They have been approved for a new high speed 4 pack lift to replace the peitie pre T-bar (far lookers left for those who know the station|). In doing so they will modify some pistes and take out the chatillon poma drag. This will remove a whole bunch of the stations freeride access leaving no good way to get into the zone at the south/ lookers left of the area. This is a great zone with 3 gullies, decent pitch and sparce trees. Excellent for storm days. A real shame to lose this with the current proposed plans.

    Not a trust funder, I moved over here when I saw the writing on the wall in JH. Spent 8 years in JH prior.

    Why do you say that? Seems somewhat unlikely to me that the guy waits a year to post footage skiing pow in Ovronnaz a day after the place has just received 1m of fresh?
