INSURANCE

You may need a specific kind of insurance when going on a ski or snowboard holiday. Double check that your insurance covers this by reading the terms and conditions don’t assume that all insurance policies covers winter sports holidays. When buying your lift pass you can pay extra (around €5) for Snow Risk Insurance. This covers you if you have an accident on the ski runs and includes rescue and repatriation, reimbursement of expenses, loss or theft of lift pass, ski equipment breakages, medical, surgical and legal services and appeal costs. Please see our LIFT PASSES page for further information.

OFF-PISTE

Off-piste is the area of a snowy mountain that hasn’t been ‘pisted’ i.e. treated or groomed into an official run. Despite being ridiculously good fun, off piste snow sports have a much higher risk of causing an avalanche compared to skiing or snowboarding on a pisted run. There are a lot of rules on piste etiquette and how to off-piste safely. There are many ski hosting  schools which offer guiding in off piste areas by highly trained experts in this area. It’s important to never go off piste alone, stay within your ability level and always wear a transceiver in case the worst does happen.
