Taking to the slopes can be exciting, but you want to know you have the right Winter Sports Insurance Cover before putting on your skis.
In addition to standard policy benefits, Winter Sports Insurance gives extra benefits for other activities.
When you're out there, take care and obey any rules on the piste, don't put yourself or others at unnecessary risk. We have a few simple pointers for you:
This is an obvious one, but it'll be cold! It's well worth investing in some clothes designed for use in the snow. Wearing several layers will also keep you warmer than one big layer (so wear a base layer, t shirt, jumper and coat rather than just a thick jumper and coat).
The sun reflects of snow and you could suffer from sunburn if you don't cover up.
Wearing ski goggles or glasses will protect your eyes from snow, debris and also the sun. It's important you choose eyewear designed for the job, if you fall everyday glasses can often shatter. Ski goggles or glasses are designed from materials that will ensure your eyes stay safe no matter what happens.
You've probably watched videos of people out on the snow doing awesome tricks. Try to remember they have had a lot of practice, and you could hurt yourself if you try to mimic some of your favourite stunts. Stick to the courses you feel comfortable on, get extra lessons if you feel you need them, and listen to your instructor or guide at all times.
Always try to go out on the piste in a group. If anything happens some of the group can stay with anyone who is injured whilst others go and fetch help. It also means you won't get lost!
