Ski & Snowboard

On or off-piste, from 3 days to 12 months, we are well known for our expertise and long history in the field of Ski/Snowboard Insurance.

Our award winning policies are specially designed for skiers and snowboarders from experience gained over many years, by understanding the requirements of those who enjoy snowsports and mountain life.

We understand the implications of skiing off piste (intentionally or unwittingly) and therefore do not exclude off piste skiing. More details about this can be found in our policy wording.

We also appreciate certain actions cannot really be avoided, such as leaving your skis/boards outside a mountain restaurant, or sneaking through a snowpark for a quick jump. Therefore there are no exclusions regarding snowparks or loss of skis up a mountain.

Ski Seasonaires

Whether it's bar work, cooking, skiing or other activities, we have the perfect seasonaire ski travel insurance for you.

Our wintersports seasonaire cover provides cover for skiing or snowboarding on or off-piste (with our without a guide), local ski racing and skiing in snow parks plus, of course, working cover*.

Plus there is now cover for your liability when ski hosting, leading or teaching in a voluntary capacity and babysitting in a private capacity.

* There is no personal liability cover whilst working, as this should be covered by an employer and might be a good idea to check.

Masters, Inferno, Inter-Club Championships, Parsen Derby, Interforce Divisional Championships (Army, Navy, Air Force), English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish competitions and children’s national championships
