Common Injuries

Cross Country Skiing has the benefit of being a full-body, aerobic exercise that is a low-impact sport and does not come with many of the risks of injury that can be incurred through other sports.

When it comes to Skiing, most studies focus on the injuries incurred by Alpine Skiers, leaving little data on those sustained by Cross Country Skiers.

Ski Safety Equipment

You can purchase Ski Safety Equipment such as Backpacks and Transceivers and much more on our website: www.snowsafe.co.uk

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions

If you have pre-existing medical conditions and you plan to participate in Cross Country Skiing whilst travelling abroad, we can provide you with a policy.

On the quote page, you need to select Hazardous Activity Pack C.
