When you’re out and about carving snow and sliding on ice at great heights in the mountains, with the crisp mountain air in your nostrils and surrounded by pristine white and the green of pines, you may feel like you are on top of the world… but according to your insurance provider, you are showing plain risky behaviour.
The truth is: your general insurance company is not going to cover you under a regular single trip policy when you are out and about doing winter sports. Insurance providers that do provide dedicated packages are more often than not too cautious to cover you above a certain height, exclude off-piste activities, or only provide cover for ski-based activities.
You, however, want to push your boundaries. You want to go that little bit higher, push that little bit further, explore off the beaten track… You want to be able to try other things than simple skiing when the opportunity arises – such as freestyle skiing, snowboarding in fun parks, snowmobiling or tobogganing.
And that’s where we come into the picture.
