Happy new year, welcome to 2021… It’s fair to say it’s not exactly going to plan.
Off the back of yesterday’s news and with Snowbombing 2021 just three months away now, we wanted to let you know that we’re working on a full assessment of the situation, alongside the Mayrhofen Tourist Board, and will be in touch next week to provide a proper update and a plan forward. We are looking at all options of what this may be.
Snowbombing is a community and a family, and we wanted to send you this note quickly so you are aware that we are working on it. Once again, we are grateful for your continued support. There is nothing we want more to be back in the mountains with you all.
Look after yourselves and speak soon.
We’d like to give you an update on Snowbombing 2021 and the impact of the ongoing global pandemic on our big plans for next year’s festival.
It’s fair to say that it’s been an extraordinarily challenging year for everyone. As we know, SB21 is now 5 months away and, with recent news of successful vaccines and rapid testing, our hopes remain positive that we will be able to deliver Snowbombing in some capacity in April. We are in close contact with the Mayrhofen Tourist Board, who will continue to provide us with updates on the latest developments in the resort. For the moment, the Tourist Board has advised us to wait until January before making any decisions, so they can assess how the first month of the ski season goes.
Given the current situation, and uncertainties around when international travel and mass gatherings will be able to return, we feel it would be irresponsible to release the lineup at this moment, whilst there is a chance we may not be able to deliver it.
We’d really appreciate all existing bookers to hold onto your bookings until we have greater clarity on what is possible, and therefore, we won’t be asking you to pay anything further towards your balance until 31st January 2021, when we’ve provided an update.
We are still busy taking bookings and it’s clear that many of you are keen to make it to Snowbombing 2021. We do not know if the festival will be delivered to the same scale as previous years, and in all likelihood, it will be a smaller and more intimate event, focused around outdoor locations and making the very most of the stunning Mayrhofen mountains and glorious springtime sunshine. More than ever, we will tap into the location, the community and the spirit that makes Snowbombing so special.
Snowbombing remains unique and brilliant because of you: our people and community spirit. We can’t thank you enough for your support and your patience and, no matter the hurdles, we look forward to welcoming you all for a brilliant week in April – something we need now more than anything.
