SKI SMART
CHOOSE YOUR INSURANCE

Attention: Please note: Lift passes do not include your personal accident insurance. In case of loss, lift passes are neither refunded, nor replaced. Snow Risk, the Portes du Soleil snow-assistance insurance, is an advantage for your safety. It covers: the cost of rescue in the event of an accident (including helicopter transport), the refund of lost skiing days, third party liability, defence and appeal, insurance for medical expenses.

Snow Risk is to be purchased when you buy your ski-passes.

SKI RESCUE SERVICE

Ski rescue service (Tel +33(0)4 50 79 72 22)
If necessary ski patrollers can be found on the slopes and in the rescue points (Red Cross boards).
What to do if you witness an accident on the slopes?
- Note the name of the slope and the closest marker number from the accident.
- You should go directly to the nearest ski lift hut or rescue post
If you have an accident, please note that the assistance on slopes is not free. Snow Risk, the Portes du Soleil snow-assistance insurance or the Carte Neige (season) covers these costs.

PROTECTION
You protect yourself so don’t forget your children!!!
A few preventive tips:
• Wear clothing suitable to the activity and weather conditions.
• For good blood circulation: don’t overtighten your clothing or shoes.
• Keep a special eye on exposed areas, nose, ears, cheeks, by protecting them with an appropriate cream.
• The head is particularly exposed and vulnerable during winter sports’ activities. Equip your children with a helmet (norm NF EN 1077).
• With or without sun the reflection of the snow is very strong. Sun glasses with high protection are indispensable.
