Yes, Assursport covers all search and rescue costs related to a skiing or snowboard accident up to a limit of € 50,000. This allows to cover 100% of the transport costs of the injured except very exceptional case, which is not part of the use of the product (Far Expeditions in Arctic or Antarctic areas to give an example).
It should be known that the helicopter is frequently used in France now as soon as the means of type trays must take a lift to reach the station. The cost of helicopter rescue costs around € 55 per minute, or 3,300 € per hour.
Abroad, as in Switzerland or Austria, the use of the helicopter is almost systematic..
During off-road rescue, the helicopter is still used, even if it is an off-piste porch tracks.
It is therefore easier to understand why Assurski is needed to cope with these important expenses.
Conventional on-piste rescue and the use of trays cost between 150 € and 650 € in the most remote areas of the ski resort. To this must sometimes add the cost of the ambulance to the doctor's office.
ASSURSPORT covers skiers and Snowboarders off-piste, including during an heli-skiing trip and on all freeride activities. Assursport covers all these practices without the need of having an instructor with you (Ski Instructor or Mountaineering guide)
