  • Snow Ski Equipment Hire. Ski Insurance may pay for hiring of alternative ski equipment if your equipment is lost or damaged.
  • Ski Pack. Ski Insurance can reimburse certain costs if you get sick and can't use prepaid ski passes, ski hire, tuition fees, and lift passes.
  • Piste Closure. In the event that you are unable to ski due to there not being enough snow, bad weather, power failure at your resort or lift closure, Ski Insurance may pay up to $100 per 24 hour period for transport to another resort or for additional ski passes.
  • Bad weather and avalanche closure. You can claim for the reasonable expenses of extra travel and alternative accommodation if your pre-booked outward or return journey is delayed for more than 12 hours due to bad weather or avalanche closure.
  • Specified luggage and personal effects cover. This option allows you to register any additional items that have a maximum value of $5,000.
  • Heli-Skiing. You can purchase additional cover for single trip heli-skiing trips that you take. You will be covered for the events listed in your policy, in line with policy terms, provided cover is taken out at least 24 hours prior to your heli-skiing trip. An additional excess of $500 will apply for claims arising out of heli-skiing.
