Whether you are heading for some skiing in California, Colorado, Vermont or New York in the U.S. or perhaps as far as Canada or Europe, record snowfalls in parts of North America and Europe have provided 2010 with optimal ski conditions right off the bat as snow bunnies everywhere head for the slopes. But as your travel experience may remain vulnerable due to unpredictable weather and incidents, it is not such a bad idea to consider travel insurance.
The most important part of planning your ski vacation is preparing for the unexpected. Ask yourself for instance, what happens if:
* Your equipment is lost, stolen, damaged or delayed en route?
* You need rental equipment to replace your own damaged or delayed equipment?
* You don't have overseas medical coverage?
* You're injured and require medical evacuation services?
* Your trip is canceled or delayed due to bad weather?
While travel insurance can't predict or prevent such things from happening, it can help when you most need it. Whether it is a package plan that offers the broadest protection, medical coverage or medical evacuation splans in the event of an injury or illness, or equipment coverage for reimbursement or damages, insurance can ease the mind so that a skier or rider's only concern is the slow poke in front of them and out-of-control person in the center of the slopes.
