The Club offers everything from dedicated Reps in resorts around the world to exclusive Members’ discounts and holidays, as well as industry leading winter sports travel insurance. 

The Club helps skiers get the most out of their holidays through their incredible community and range of membership benefits.

You can find inspiration in the Club magazine, Ski+board, published throughout the winter, and find your community through  events and meet-ups here in the UK.

The Ski Club’s Freshtracks holiday’s offers the UK’s most comprehensive programme for skiing enthusiasts looking to take to the slopes with like-minded and similar ability skiers.

Ski Club Travel Insurance

The Ski Club Still Brings the Best for Skiers

The Club re-launched its insurance for winter 2023 with one of the most comprehensive policies available. Policies include off-piste and backcountry skiing without a guide, one of very few policies able to cover that area. It’s a specialist skiing policy designed with skiers in mind, but annual policy can be used for summer holidays too

The cover, designed by skiers for skiers, offers a wide range of options to suit any need, from families heading away for a half term break to those looking for their next thrill in the backcountry. They offer up to 45 days winter sports cover per year, including off piste, without a guide, and outside of resort boundaries as standard on all policies. Skiers don’t need to be members to purchase their travel insurance through The Ski Club, but the member benefits are compelling.

“Understanding what level of insurance cover is needed for a ski holiday can be confusing. The destination and type of ski trip can make a difference to the type of insurance policy that will be most suitable for the skier or snowboarder.  Our online Insurance Guide helps by clarifying what to look for when searching for ski holiday cover, and the Ski Club’s own insurance provides wide-ranging winter sports cover,” said James Gambrill, General Manager of The Ski Club of Great Britain, who added, “Skiing or snowboarding is exhilarating, but accidents, injuries and delays can and do happen, so it makes sense to be prepared. Specialist winter sports insurance cover is invaluable if you’re caught out with unexpected medical or travel costs, our guides will help our members understand what to do in the event of a medical emergency or when to submit a claim.”

Ski Club members who have opted for Beginner or Standard membership and later decide that they want insurance cover can pay to upgrade their membership to the Platinum package, or alternatively they can buy Gold or Diamond insurance policies with a 15% discount.

Insurance options start from Individual and Family Single Trip policies, then Individual and Family Annual Multi-trip insurance for Europe. Parents will be pleased to know that family policies include cover for dependents up to the age of 23 (and in full time education).
