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. In the USA for example 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.
JS Travel Insurance can now provide cover for your Gadgets, such as Mobile Phones, Tablets and Computer Game Consoles. You will be able to select this cover on the quote page of our website.
