Off Piste Skiing is going off the groomed runs and intro areas that are unmanaged terrian between the runs.

You should always have a good look and study the Resort Map. In this Map will show you the marked runs as well as the areas between.

All our policies cover Off Piste Skiing and Snowboarding as standard as long as you are Off Piste within the Resort Boundaries and you are not in any areas that have been declared off limits for any reason by the Resort Management.

*The excess payable does vary depending on the claim benefit.

Please read the full Terms and Conditions of this policy offered by JS Travel Insurance.

Safety Equipment

We recommend that you buy Avalanche Safety Gear and a great package s the Zoom Package from Ortovox , this includes Zoom Transceiver and an Ortovox Probe and shovel , 

Recco Reflectors as well are a must and great value at £24.95. 

If you are gong into areas that are not managed and where Ski Patrols tend not to go into, the term can be referred to 'out of bounds' or 'back country' Skiing.

These terms have come to the UK mainly from the USA and Canada. For Example in the USA,  if you go 'out of bounds' you might find yourself in some legal trouble and may well receive a fine. In Europe you have not committed any crime and so is it not illegal.

The term 'back country' is not the same as Cross Country Skiing as this is more like a tour of the resort and tends to be on a flat terrain.
