Ski Terrain Park Travel Insurance

If you are planning a trip and will be going to a Ski Terrain Park, it is a good idea to have a Travel Insurance policy in place before you leave your home.

If you are Freestyle Skiing / Snowboarding in Ski Terrain Parks, such as performing tricks, these activities are covered as long as they are in the designated areas.

Please Note: This policy does not cover you for Acrobatics / Sommersaults in the Ski Terrain Park. We can still provide cover if you are taking part this freestyling, please contact us for a quote.

Usually, the Ski Terrain Park is just to the side of a piste and it is specifically designed for tricks, e.g. there is usually a halfpipe and snow jumps.

You will need to select Winter Sports during the quote process.


Please check the Terms and Conditions for any Restrictions or Exclusions.

Popular Locations

Mammoth Mountain, California

This popular place to hit the Ski Terrain Park has three award winning Parks. If you do not want to deal with huge crowds, try to avoid it during the weekends.

Keystone, Colorado

The A51 park comprises more than 60 acres, an area that is split up into five main sections. There are more than 35 obstacles, which offer rides suitable for all skill levels. It boasts everything from a beginners park to rides suitable for the pros.

Buttermilk, Colorado

This is one of the best places in the world for Winter Sports, renowned for its massive jumps and step downs. If you visit in the beginning of February, you will have the opportunity to ride the exact same jumps as are used in the games.

Whistler / Blackcomb, Canada

Because of the presence of Blackcomb and Whistler mountains, this ski area is home to more professional Skiers and Snowboarders than any other place in the world. There are bowls, chutes and parks, while the back country riding increasing in popularity. One of the absolute favourites is the Nintendo Terrain Park.

Tignes, France

Famous for boasting the longest ski season, the Tignes Board Park is better for beginner and intermediate Boarders because of the smaller kickers. As it is sponsored by Swatch, it has a system with cameras across the park that will film your run and will save the footage online. This allows you to watch, share and download images of yourself doing tricks.

Mayrhofen is one of Austrias best Winter Sports locations. This resort hosts some of the biggest events in Skiing and Snowboarding, including the annual Snowbombing weekend and the Aesthetiker Jam.

Common Injuries

Injuries are easily sustained when Skiing or Snowboarding, with abrasions and contusions being the most common ones.

There are, however, also several more serious injuries and conditions that might even require surgery if not taken care of in the beginning stages.

Snowboarders Ankle: This Talus bone fracture is 15% more common among Snowboarders and Skiers than other people. It is often caused by a history of many sprained ankles. This long term abuse of the ankle joint could eventually result in joint deterioration and even disability.

Wrist Injuries: Because your natural reflex is to put your hand out to break a fall, wrist injuries are commonly sustained by falling when descending.

Dislocated Shoulder: This injury is easy to sustain and can put you out of action for up to two or three weeks. This is often followed by about six weeks of rehabilitation.

Knee Ligament: About a third of all winter sports injuries have something to do with the knee. And there is a noticeable increase in the number of cases of knee ligament ruptures in the past two decades. This can be explained by the use of new bindings and new ski boots that reduce the risk of suffering ankle and shin injuries, but do move the effects to the area around the knee.

Pre Existing Medical Conditions

If you have pre existing medical conditions and you plan to go to a Snow Terrain Park whilst travelling abroad, we are able to provide you with a policy. You will need to select Winter Sports during the quote process.
