Safety Advise whilst Skiing
With the cold and sometimes difficult conditions on the slopes, there is some basic safety information you should know:
- Protect your eyes. You should use either goggles or sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun and any branches or stones that you might encounter whilst Skiing.
- Dress in warm clothing. You are advised to wear more than one layer of clothing and always wear a hat and gloves. Purchasing some thermal clothing that keeps the heat in would be a recommended thing to do to help you stay warm.
- Know your limits. You may be an experienced Skier, but you should try to be on or off piste with a friend and always know when it is time for a break.
- Follow good piste etiquette. You should always give way to those who are in front or below you. Doing so will lower the chance of any potential accidents or injuries to both yourself and other Skiers.
Common Injuries whilst Skiing
Injuries sustained while playing Winter Sports are usually light, but can occasionally be quite severe. It totally depends on the type of sport in which you are participating, Ski Racing will obviously be much more dangerous than Snow Shoeing. Especially the downhill Winter Sports are known for their danger, due to high speeds, if something goes wrong, it usually goes terribly wrong. Although fatalities are exceptionally rare, injuries are rather common.
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 Skiing for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
This Sport does not provide Accidental Death & Disability Benefit or Personal Liability cover.
