If you buy your ticket mechanical lifts for winter sports with your credit card, it can include an emergency insurance and civil liability. (see with your banking institution to see if you get this insurance option in your credit card agreement)
(I just learned about this insurance option when paying with our own credit card ... So I just mention it)
By taking this additional, optional insurance, you get a guarantee that allows you in case of an accident or unable to reach the station, to be supported 100% by rescuers, and if necessary, be transported to the hospital. This insurance also provides liability to you in a collision with another skier and if you hurt him, and also for mountain rescue in case of injury requiring the intervention of a humanitarian team.

If you are robbed your rented gear, insurance will reimburse the rental shop and you will not have to pay a dime.
An insurance option to consider, from simple holiday tourists, the experienced rider because in one season, it is quite possible that you mutilate a little or a lot of winter sports equipment.
Crash Man (true story)
I remember a few years ago, we were surfing, and rider is dropped to the side and dislocated shoulder, so not cool to try to descend down to the station. A rescuer came by snowmobile and said simply 'do you want I'll go down the station?' "Yes" said our friend, but the rescuer had not warned that this was going to be paid, and so he was subsequently charged € 350, only a small path behind the snowmobile 100 to 150m alone, rider was not warned that he had to pay, but in accepting to be down to the station, the bill was just beginning.
So let's recap. If this surf practicing rider had taken out insurance with his ski pass, for only three or four euros in addition to the price, while the costs were paid by the insurance company. That's why it is necessary to think and choose this supplemental insurance plan that is proposed to you a very low cost.
Think about it, if you go during the winter snow about twenty times so 20 times tripled euros, which is the price of accident insurance, this will make you a total cost of € 60 for 20 days spent in snow, and we can say that it is price to pay, especially if you realize the risks they incur and the potential costs to be paid in case of accident, return to the station or problems.
You also will often ride in the snow? In addition, if you are a top rider, especially in this case, it is interesting to consider and take out this insurance crash. Assuming that you are 20 days riding snow, insurance will cost a total of 60 to 70 € for 20 days, a great rate when we take into consideration the risks of winter sports.
All stations offer this extra insurance with their ski passes, which can be very useful, and, remember, for a small additional fee, which varies between three and four euros only after the winter sports resorts. I let you think, but think carefully, because a low cost, you can actually save money in case of problems or accidents.
By the way, wish you a good holiday and good ride.
