    Everybody's gotta have parkas. I'm talking custom parkas. Two words: "client development." They see all of you out there cutting the powder in your matching Schweikart & Cokely parkas, you'll make an impression. You will thank me later.

    Omicron is an anagram for moronic. Lets hope the response makes sense and helps.

    Well since I Posted one of the Stations with the most snow and no other Region has received more, I'd say closer to one meter that two. But nevermind...

Other locales (Austria/Switzerland) are off limits due to Covid, and it seems like there's not much snow headed for Italy.
    Gee, I guess it ain't that easy to be a globe trotting asshole from America these days. Maybe you should just show everybody your CDC card and you can continue on your merry way. Just Google it, right?

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    You're so butthurt it's amazing. I was trying to help you in the other thread before you got your period. But I think you'll be happier getting into arguments on the internet from Maryland or wherever the fuck you are than actually skiing, especially in Europe. So stay home and maybe try being a cunt in the mid-atlantic thread for a change?

    For fawks sake Benny, call a pharmacy in Cortina or where ever you wanna go and ask them if you can get a QR code. It took me all of 15 minutes to get mine. Be aware some nations donít accept vaccinations over 6 months old.

    This article describes how you can show your US CDC vaccination card at a German pharmacy which will allow you to get the EU COVID19 vaccination certificate. Apparently you can also do this in French pharmacies, although I have heard it is more hit and miss. Not sure about Italian pharmacies, but would suspect it would be even more hit and miss.

    Aforementioned article also links to the French website for an online application whereby you upload your USA CDC card and info. Don't bother, it's no longer working. I believe the site was overwhelmed by applications, and the French raised the white flag on it.

    Article doesn't mention the Swiss website which is what I ended up using. You upload your USA CDC vax card, passport and itinerary (I used my plane ticket pdf, I imagine you could use a train ticket as well), also including an address in Switzerland you'll be staying (they don't check, I used a hotel near the airport). The site is easy to navigate and straightforward. They charge 30 CHF, but get back to you promptly, very Swiss.

    Benny was so busy shouting at clouds about how it wasn't a "real" EU certificate, he completely ignored my mentioning that the Swiss pass is good in the rest of the EU due to reciprocity.

    My wife met Bruno 20 years ago when she was competing in the extreme ski stuff, great skier.
    He went on to start black Crows, and my wife went on to marry me.

    Suppose I dont want to go to Switzerland? And suppose I dont want to commit to an "itinerary", which means hotel and flight purchase, before I go through the "hit or miss" process of obtaining a green pass in some foreign country I cant speak the language? Where is there a pharmacy that will do this for me? Probably Milan, I guess, but, I dont want to go to Milan. Balzano? Maybe. Corvara? Arraba? Who knows?

    WAPO ran a comical article all about Americans essentially trapped in Paris, of all places, when the instituted their digital pass requirements, and these poor souls couldn't even go to a cafe and eat, because you needed this damn pass to do anything. The pharmacists were telling them to fuck off (hey, it's France), and the office they were sent to and waited outside in line for a few hours told them to kinda fuck off, eventually (hey, it's France). So, you know, no. Not if its snowing in Colorado.

    Christ. Fuck you too, really. I am asking valid questions here, and it's like talking to children.

    Here, I just found this:

    "How does Green Pass work for†people who travel to Italy from abroad?

    Italy's Green Pass was introduced ahead of the EU Digital COVID Certificate (EUDCC) which has allowed free travel across the European Union since 1 July.
    The Italian version of the Green Pass only applies to people who have been vaccinated, tested negative or recovered from covid-19 in Italy."

    So, back to where I started. Standing in line every day with my CDC card to activate my Dolomiti ski pass. Unless somebody can tell me how I can fairly easily obtain an Italian valid digital green pass.

    Let your little poo piles fly.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    I am chuckling about the lack of awareness with how Benny thinks his plaintive whiny complaints amount to "talking to children".

    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.
