The FCO have launched travel advice guidance for Brits travelling to a winter ski or snowboarding holiday abroad to make sure they stay safe on the slopes.
The guidance includes essential advice and tips to ensure that travellers avoid injury and expensive medical costs whilst on the slopes. The key messages are:
- Take out comprehensive insurance that covers all of your winter sports activities
- Don’t drink and ski
- Protect our head and policy – many insurers insist you wear a helmet
- Don’t attempt slopes you’re not experienced or fit enough to tackle
- Make sure someones knows where you’re going and tell them of any changes to your plans
