More about skiing
Prior to 1860, skiing was primarily used for practical transport purposes in snow-rich areas but since then recreational skiing has massively grown in popularity, with competition also being introduced. Perhaps most popular is alpine skiing and with 1.2 million British people hitting the slopes each year, questions of safety are on the rise. Currently about 40% of skiers chose to wear a helmet which reduces the risk of head injury and it is hotly debated that helmets should be made compulsory. The boom of the ski industry and the introduction of the Winter Olympic Games in 1924 means winter sports are more popular and varied than ever but precautions should be taken. From heli-skiing to cross country skiing to ski jumping, make sure you’re fully covered with one of our comprehensive policies.

As always ordering was smooth, seamless and excellent value. Even completing medical condition declaration was easy unlike a lot of other sites.
Great to be able to speak to someone quickly, without being on hold for ages. Knowledgeable staff, understood what they were doing and not reading from a script.
