If you're looking forward to a winter sports holiday this year, make sure you're properly prepared. That doesn't just mean packing appropriate clothing or hiring the right equipment. It means making sure you have the right ski holiday insurance. It's surprising how many people head off for the slopes without the appropriate insurance cover.
What is ski insurance?
Ski travel insurance is a special layer of cover for winter sports activities. It focuses on providing you cover for ski related issues, such as having an accident on a snowy, European mountain slope. Activities like skiing and snowboarding involve high speed manoeuvres and the risk of injury can be high. The risk you are at is then further heightened if you’re on an icy slope, or if there is heavy snow blocking your vision, making it easier to collide with an object or another skier. These types of accidents can be extremely expensive and the costs involved in seeking medical help can sometimes prevent you from getting the treatment you need. This can be especially scary when you’re far away in a resort in the USA, or Canada. Having insurance can help you remedy this issue.
It’s not just injury on the slopes that a ski insurance policy will typically help you with on your trip. Other possibilities a policy usually covers includes loss of your equipment, or having your gear stolen. If bad weather closes the slopes and prevents you from being able to go snowboarding on the mountains, then you may find a policy that covers you for this unfortunate event too.
