Protect Yourself and Your Skiing Adventure with the Right Insurance

At Wild Snow, we believe that part of having a great skiing adventure is being well-prepared and protected. That's why we recommend carrying two insurance policies when skiing on our adventure tours. Most standard travel insurance policies do not cover skiing out of bounds, which is why we advise getting a second policy that specifically covers this.

When choosing your insurance, make sure to opt for comprehensive coverage for general travel and check the COVID19 medical coverage included. To help you get started, we have listed three recommended insurance providers for backcountry skiing. Simply click on the links below to access their websites and get a quote.
