What is 'Extreme Ski-ing'

Extreme ski-ing is performed on long very steep slopes off piste. There is a substantial risk of injury to the skier due to the probability of losing control and falling substantial distances with no access to medical treatment.

Insurance for Extreme Ski-Ing

Due to the high risks involved we are unable to obtain a quote for 'Extreme Skiing'

(Warning - some companies may quote 'extreme ski-ing' in their marketing - but read the policy wording very carefully) e.g.

"If you are under 50, you can take part in the following extreme ski activities if you pay the appropriate extra premium (there will be an increased excess of 250 for any claims under section B Medical and other expenses). Heli-skiing, ski acrobatics, ski stunting, freestyle skiing, ski racing and training (not professional), ice hockey, skeletons and bobsleighs."

Note that this describes some forms of ski-ing as 'extreme' - but they are not 'extreme ski-ing' as defined above.

Other Winter Sports

Of, course you may wish to have cover other than just ski-ing. Information about other winter sports travel insurance is available.
