White House officials have confirmed that leisure travel will be allowed to resume to the U.S. from November 8th from a number of countries including those in the EU and UK.
However open fully vaccinated travellers will be allowed in, having a negative test only will not be acceptable. Along with being fully vaccinated arrivals in the US will need to complete contact tracing and have had a negative test result in the previous 72 hours however.
The US ski season began at the weekend with Arapahoe Basin (pictured above on Sunday 18th October) and Wolf Creek opening for their 21-22 seasons.
The announcement that borders would re-open in November had been made last month, but until now there had not been a specific date given. US Borders have been closed to non-essential travel since March 2020. Canada re-opened its international borders to leisure travellers in September.
