A snowmobile doesn’t have wheels, but has continuous tracks at the rear and a pair of skis at the front.

Risks with Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling is an extremely dangerous sport that comes with very high risks. In order to compete in any Snowmobiling events, it is necessary to have proof of Travel Insurance and sign a waiver on entering. It is easy to lose control of the snowmobile on the ice and often, snowmobiles can land on or collide with the rider should a stunt or trick go wrong.

It is not uncommon for riders to sustain serious injuries, with broken bones and knocked out teeth common occurrences. Sometimes this can lead to more extreme injuries though, including paralysis. As the sport progresses, becoming more popular, and riders try more extreme stunts, it becomes even more dangerous.

Despite big crashes at X Games, there have been few major injuries occurring there, largely due to the addition of increased safety features, such as foam pits.

Injuries more often occur when Snowmobilers are practising at home. This is because they are using smaller runs and ramps, without the same safety precautions, and landing on different terrain.

So not only is it vital to purchase Travel Insurance in order to compete in the games, but you could potentially be left with a Hospital stay and some hefty costs if you are not properly covered.

Important Information

You must ensure that you are adequately supervised, that appropriate safety equipment (such as protective headwear etc.) are worn at all times and you do not participate in Snowmobiling for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
