Prepare in advance
However much you enjoy spur of the moment decisions, there is a lot to be said for preparing in advance:
You are likely to be right in thinking that winter sports or ski insurance – such as that offered by specialists Bengo Travel – is more or less essential:
Get into shape
Skiing requires more than a degree of fitness on your part, of course, so if you are thinking about your next holiday, now is likely to be a good time to start getting into shape.
The better prepared you are physically, the lower the chances of your getting into those situations which result in broken bones – or worse.
Check your gear
If you are planning to take your own ski gear, it is important to inspect it thoroughly and ensure that it has been well maintained and is still up to the job – if not, you may need to hire it.
Whether you have your own, or are going for the hire of equipment, make sure that this includes a safety helmet. Different resorts may have different rules governing the wearing of helmets and the UK government website suggests that some insurers make it a condition of their cover that helmets are worn on the slopes.
Check the weather
You are likely to have done it at least once already, but before you go, it may be a good idea to check the Met Office snow forecast to check on the current conditions at your chosen resort.
It might also be worth noting that some specialist winter sports insurance policies provide compensation for any days during which the ski slopes are formally closed by the resort. The same policies might also provide compensation for additional travel expenditure or further nights of accommodation if your arrival at or departure from your resort is blocked by an avalanche.
