Adventurer Upgrade: Specialist Winter Sports and Ski Travel Insurance
So you have mastered all that the groomed slopes have to offer? You now want to ride your skis or snowboard in the off-piste! Some insurance policies may not cover you for off piste ski and snowboarding, but we are skiers and we know that off-piste/free ride/backcountry is the holy grail for most snow sports enthusiasts out there.
Yes, you still get all of the cover for riding on the groomers, you're now covered to ride away from the piste markers with a professional guide! We strongly recommend you're wearing the right protective gear, see Safety On Snow
for more information.
A guide can safely take you into the backcountry and help you learn the safest and easiest ways to enjoy the powder. Usually reputable freeride schools will have avalanche safety equipment that you can hire from them; these include an avalanche transceiver, a shovel and a probe.
If this type of skiing is something you want to do, then you should also think about getting a wider set of skis, with some rocker technology to make life easier for yourself and don't forget when you take this step, things do become a bit more dangerous so remember that helmet and back protector!
If you've already gone through this type of process and you are use to riding the backcountry on your own, or you want to start learning how to ride park and pipe then our Pro upgrade
may be just for you.
To help you, below are the steps we encourage you to review first before purchasing.
Please note: There also a variety of different non winter sports activities you are covered for, please refer to the policy wordings for more information.
