Back country skiing insurance

Getting off the beaten track is one of the real joys of spending any time in the mountains. There is no denying that hiking up and looking for that virgin snow is as exhiliarating at it comes but as recent seasons have shown the risks in terms of injuries and fatalities is high.

In resort a lot of the danger is removed by well trained ski patrollers who are specialists in assessing the risk to skiers and snowboarders within the resort boundaries. If you leave the resort however you're on your own and will have to rely on your guide or your own judgement to assess the risk, especially with regard to avalanches.

From an skiing travel insurance perspective, underwriters see this as a particularly high risk activity and such you will have to pay an additional premium to cover this activity.
