Travel Insurance for Ski Mountaineering

What is Ski mountaineering?

Ski mountaineering is the use of Nordic and Telemark skiing with mountaineering skills to find ski slopes that are otherwise inaccessible. Ski-ing may only be the secondary aspect of the trip.

Note that this is NOT the same as extreme ski-ing - where the difficulty of the descent is the main feature.

Increased Danger

  • Difficulty of accessing skier if they are injured during the actual ski-ing

  • Descents are likely to be steeper and harder to ski

  • Danger of hidden rocks, snow pockets etc

  • Danger in actually climbing the mountain.
