If you are planning to do some Cross Country Skiing, your Travel Insurance policy must state this as a sport you will be taking part in.
Cross Country Skiing is a specific type of Skiing that involves Skiers using their own body to move forward, as opposed to using ski lifts and gravity to move up and down slopes. Cross Country Skiers push themselves forward by striding with their skis, while ski poles help maintain balance and offer an additional push. Because of the fact that Cross Country Skiers rely completely on their own body strength to move forward, Cross Country Skiing is generally done on more gentle snow covered terrains.

Common Injuries whilst Cross Country Skiing
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. However, injuries can still be incurred as a result of the sport.
It is important that you always use the correct equipment to minimise the risk of incurring injury, including the correct ski boots and protective (warm) clothing.
Because of this, it is important that you purchase Travel Insurance that covers the sport if you want to go Cross Country Skiing whilst on holiday, before you leave the country.
Cross Country Skiing Equipment
A pair of skis and a pair of ski poles are needed for Cross Country Skiing. The skis need to be well maintained to assure good sliding, while the poles are essential for the skiers to keep their balance and to offer additional pushing power. Other gear includes ski clothing and ski boots, and sometimes also a helmet.
You must ensure that you are adequately supervised, that appropriate safety equipment (such as protective headwear, etc.) are worn at all times and you do not participate in Cross Country Skiing for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
