Generally, non-refundable pre-paid passes for ski equipment, tuition fees and ski lift passes will be covered in the event you are unable to use them due to injury or illness incurred during your holiday. Cover is also offered in the event you are unable to ski for more than 24 hours continually at a pre-booked ski resort due to weather conditions or closure of the lift system.
