Thinking of hitting the slopes this year but unsure of what steps to take before heading off? We run through a short list of things to do to ensure that your ski holiday this season is a hit.
First of all, you’ll need equipment. Whether you’re buying or renting, you should make sure that your equipment is insured either by the party you are renting it from or on your ski insurance policy. If you are unsure whether your ski insurance policy covers your equipment, don’t hesitate in calling your ski insurance provider.
You’ll also want to get some practice in before hitting the slopes. And even if you’re a veteran skier, you’ll want to ensure that you’re fit enough that you won’t get tired out quickly – for more information about getting fit for the slopes, see our previous article here.
Having adequate ski insurance is extremely important. Skiing can be a hazardous sport and if you get injured without adequate ski insurance you might find yourself left with a hefty bill.
“In the event of injury, it could cost up to €3,000 to get an airlift from the slopes,” says Fiona Butler, manager of ski insurance at www.Getcover.ie, “So, make sure to take out adequate ski insurance when booking your ski holiday.”
Most importantly, if you are unsure of how comprehensive your ski insurance is, don’t hesitate in contacting your ski insurance provider.
