Winter Travel Insurance
It is vital to think about having a thorough winter sports insurance policy which will not only cover you in the event of an accident or injury, but will also cover your ski or snowboarding equipment if it gets lost or stolen. We know this is the last thing you want to think about when you’re looking forward to a ski trip, but please do check you are covered. Many banks and mobile phone contracts offer Annual Travel Insurance but please do check it covers winter sports. There are lots of good companies that specialise in Winter Travel Insurance for single trips.
Winter sports safety tips
Don’t let an accident on the first day ruin your weekend, remember a few simple tips and ensure a great time in the snow.
1. Wear a helmet – some policies request that you do. I know this seems like a really boring suggestion, but safety first!
2. Wear suntan lotion – Any seasoned pro knows that suntan lotion to the face is a must.
3. Dress smart! First timers always seem to make the same mistake – you don’t need to dress for the Arctic! If you’re skiing or snowboarding all day, you’ll generally be keeping your body temperature quite high. Invest in a good coat and ski trousers. One will keep you warm, the other will keep your butt dry after you’ve landed on it for the hundredth time.
4. Know your limits. Winter sports – the clue is in the name. Most activities will use muscle groups that you probably haven’t used in a while – or at all! Cramp is a common occurrence and when you’re halfway down a vertical slope, it can be pretty inconvenient! Ease yourself in – hard I know when you only have a few days.
5. Don’t go into the roped off areas. Again, this may seem an obvious one – but that fresh powder can look oh so appealing. Seriously though, they are roped off for a reason.
6. Stay hydrated – and we don’t mean Aperol Spritz
