Even during this pandemic, physical activity is not only allowed but even welcomed. There are quite a few mountains and cross-country ski runs in Latvia. They are currently open, follow all COVID-19 safety requirements, and are waiting for you.
However, if you wish to get a chance to enjoy a ski run this winter season, then you must apply in advance. Merely going to the skiing resort and enjoying the track in a matter of minutes will not be possible this year. Also, many of these places are fully booked for weeks in advance, so be quick! It is advisable, when booking, to find out beforehand if enough rental equipment is available.
BalticTravelnews.com has compiled several Latvian ski tracks, which also operate this season. If you have any additional information about other places where it is possible to ski and rent equipment, please do not keep quiet, but share your experience by writing to BalticTravelnews.com or write in the comments below.
