Ski Touring Travel Insurance

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

The definition of Ski Touring is travelling on skis across the mountains reaching every night a different or occasionally returning to the same mountain hut.

This involves some skiing and may involve a very limited amount of crossing rocks, and occasionally the use of ropes by the guide to ensure safety. The main aim of Ski Toruing is to traverse the mountains, not to climb them.
