How is our Ski Touring Insurance different?

Most standard travel insurance policies will exclude cover for ski touring, especially when competitions and overnight stays are involved, making a specialist policy necessary. So, if you have an accident on the slopes and are not covered, you could be left to pick up the bill.

At SportsCover Direct we can cover you for a variety of ski touring activities including Alpine and Nordic.  If you are planning to take part in a competition which involves overnight stay in a cabin, that would be covered too. 

Our Sports Travel Insurance comes with benefits such as 24 hour emergency medical assistance, search and rescue, cancellation and more. If you need to be evacuated from the mountainside or repatriated back home, this will be also covered under our policy.

Why do you need Ski Touring Insurance

Alpine ski touring, like other mountain sports, is a risky activity, which according to our risk grade system sits amongst the highest – Sport Group 7.

Being a form of skiing that is done off-piste, you don’t have the security provided by the ski resorts. You can get lost on the mountain or have an accident in an area where there is no phone or assistance services.

Therefore, taking out insurance before you head to the slopes is crucial.
