We consider adequate travel insurance to be essential and it is an express condition of booking with Ski-Val that this is in place, no liability will be accepted for anyone travelling without adequate travel/ski insurance.  

May we take this opportunity to remind you that skiing is a hazardous sport and that you ski at your own risk, please always ensure you stick within your capabilities and confidence. In addition you must bear in mind that the Alps in Winter are as harsh as ever for example, extreme weather, avalanches, you could be snowed in (or out),  travel to and from resort maybe disrupted due to circumstances beyond our control.

It is your responsibility to ensure that any insurance cover you purchase is suitable and tailored specifically to the skier and snow boarder requirements and the activities you intend to take part in whilst on holiday. When you organise insurance ensure that it at least covers cancellation by you, delayed departure/travel disruption (both outbound and inbound), medical costs, mountain rescue and emergency repatriation, including by helicopter (but you may also purchase this cover with your lift pass), third party liability  and your baggage and personal effects. Ski Val will not be liable for any expenses, costs, losses or damage of any nature whatsoever, which you incur as a result of your failure to purchase suitable and adequate travel insurance. In the event that Ski Val does incur any expenses, costs or losses as a result of any such failure on your part you will be responsible for reimbursing Ski Val for the full  amount of such expenses, costs or losses.

For more information as to what your insurance should cover, refer to our booking terms and conditions.
