Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:

Off piste insurance question

 Poster: A snowHead

Hi all, my Halifax Travel Insurance lists

"***Off-piste must be within the resort boundaries and following local ski patrol guidelines."

in it's T&Cs. My question is - what does local ski patrol guidelines mean? I don't want to do serious off piste but I want to be able to jump off the piste into some minor side trails etc!

I used to use BMC when I skied off piste. Expensive, but weasel-free policy wording.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

This has been covered at length in the below thread:


The wording works for North American resorts but a consensus wasn't reached as to what it means for European resorts. For peace of mind I like to have Austrian Alpine Club membership/insurance if I am going to leave the pistes at all. It's not as cheap as it once was but it is free of any weasel clauses

Brilliant, thanks for the link! Seems to me that jumping off the groomed piste to get into some powder would be covered but going into the wilderness wouldn't. Think I'll risk it!
