Do I need insurance?

-Yes!!! It is important that you are adequately insured when on the slopes, if not a fall could be costly. Firstly check your travel documents, or with your insurance provider, to see whether or not you are adequately covered. Usually if you have travel insurance you will have to pay your treatment costs, then send the receipts of to your insurance provider to claim them back.

Having European health card can be useful if your injury requires a hospital stay as a large percentage of the costs can be covered by this.

If you do not feel you are adequately covered you can purchase “Carré Neige” insurance with your lift pass.  Cover includes:
