Types of Ski Insurance
We encourage all students to take out medical insurance for the full duration of the course which covers them for skiing and ski instructor training. On top of this insurance, we also recommend that they have:
- European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). With this you will benefit from the reciprocal health care arrangements which exist between countries within the EU/EEA or Switzerland. You can apply for this through dh.gov.uk/travellers
- Carte Neige (French) / Snow Assist (Swiss). This is available to buy in resort and costs around £40 – £50 for the whole season. This insurance covers you for the cost of mountain search and rescue on and off-piste. http://www.carreneige.com or http://www.snowassist.ch/en/ . We can help you to buy this when you arrive in resort (this insurance actually donates 50% of its profits to local sports clubs which help to train the local children in mountain sports, so you’re supporting your local area when you buy).
