Coronavirus / Covid 19 and French Alps Resort Closures

****  17 March Update ****

Huski are still operating and delivering every day. We have plenty of food and drink available for collection from our depot or delivery to the Haute Tarentaise, including Espace Killy resorts (Val d’Isere, Tignes), Paradiski resorts (La Plagne, Les Arcs, Villaroger), La Rosiere, Ste Foy. Choose your closest resort when ordering.

We are launching a no-contact drop-off service which involves our driver leaving deliveries on your doorstep removing the need for direct contact for both parties. Only online checkout credit card payments are accepted for payment.

Collections need to be pre-ordered and arranged in advance of visiting. Please phone us on arrival and we will bring your order outside to you.

Menus are not currently available so you will need to choose from our individual items or drinks product listings.

****  15 March Update ****

As I’m sure you’re aware the French authorities have confirmed that they are closing all non-essential public places – this includes bars, restaurants and regrettably, all French ski resorts. This will come into effect this evening. Effectively the 2019/20 ski season in the French Alps is over.

Clearly the priority needs to be set around people’s health and safety, but this comes as a major blow to all people and businesses working in the ski industry. However, as a food delivery business, we hope we can continue to provide a valuable service to anyone in the region and are working with the local authorities to explore how we can help.

Meanwhile, in the core of our business, we want to reassure any customers with whom we have outstanding orders or partners whose guests we are offering a service, that we will do all we can to honour our commitments.

This is all very sudden news and we are currently taking advice on what the future holds: for our staff, our customers and our future operations. Please bear with us for a period of 48hrs while we gather the necessary data and advice to establish a plan, and will then be in contact with anyone affected around credit notes, insurance claims or refunds.

This is an entirely unprecedented situation and a major shock to anyone running a business in the Alps. Please rest assured that we are doing all we can to prioritise and are using our resources wisely. We are in close contact with the regional authorities in the Savoie and will be duly taking guidance and instruction. We will be in touch shortly.

Meanwhile, the Huski team sends our best wishes that you stay healthy and optimistic wherever you are.
