Understand what’s covered and what’s not

Before you leave on your winter sports holiday, make sure you understand when you are and are not covered. As always, the best way is to read the Product Disclosure Statement for full details.

For example, skiers and snowboarders will not be covered if they are backcountry/off-piste, racing or participating in a professional capacity. Snowmobilers will not be covered for personal liability as a snowmobile is considered to be a mechanically propelled vehicle.
