First of all, you have to be aware that skiing and / or snowboarding are risky sports, in and of themselves. In France, over the duration of the ski season, accidents are generally more than 130,000 throughout the territory (data from the Association Médecins de Montagne). Going on a winter sports holiday without having adequate insurance can therefore cost you a lot. Why ? Because a ski accident has multiple consequences: if you hurt yourself on the slopes or off-piste, you will have to send a search and rescue team. It will then take care of your possible injuries (doctor consultation, surgery, physio ...). In addition, your skiing accident prevents you from taking advantage of your package and possibly your rental, if you must be repatriated. All these incidents result in costs that can be very high end to end.
By opting for a dedicated ski insurance, you know that you are covered no matter what: relief, medical expenses, rental price, repatriation ... Including on the more benign issues of equipment breakage, your ski insurance allows you to rent a replacement equipment for your week in winter sports. Assurski costs 16.50 euros per week; a very modest price to go skiing with peace of mind !
