If you have a Pre Existing Medical Condition, it is always important to declare this, as this might effect a claim in the future. If you fail to do this, you might find you have a large medical bill to pay when you get home.
With the cold and sometimes difficult conditions, there are some basic safety information you should take into account.
- Dress in warm clothing. You should wear more than on layer of clothing and always wear a hat and gloves. It might be a good idea to purchase some thermal clothing as this keeps the heat in.
- Protect your eyes. You should use either sunglasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the sun and any branches or stones that you might encounter whilst skiing.
- Follow good Piste etiquette. You should always give way to those who are in front or below you. This will avoid any potential accidents or injuries to your self or other skiers.
- Know your limits. You may be an experienced skier or snowboarder, but you should try to be on or off piste with a friend and always know when it is time for a break.
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 Winter Sports for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
These activities do not provide Accidental Death & Disability Benefit or Personal Liability cover.
