As Colorado’s Breckenridge Ski Resort celebrates 50 years of skiing, it’s important for travelers to understand how their travel insurance policy will cover them.
If someone is on their trip and injured while downhill skiing or snowboarding, most travel insurance policies will cover them to receive medical treatment or to be evacuated to the nearest hospital.
However, if someone plans on participating in extreme skiing, such as backcountry skiing or off-piste skiing, they should purchase a policy that offers the benefit Hazardous Sports. Hazardous Sports coverage allows travelers to particpate is more extreme sports and be covered if injured during the activity.
Always refer to an individual policy to see what sporting events are covered.
