Travel insurer estimate 3.32 million first-timer skiers to hit the slopes

InsureandGo has estimated that as many as 760,000 (23%) will hit the slopes without having any lessons if they continue the trend of current skiers/snowboarders.

Perry Wilson, managing director, InsureandGo said: “Skiing and snowboarding can be dangerous, so it’s important to make sure you are prepared, and this means that you should have lessons. Some people think they don’t need them, and I suspect that many of the medical related winter sports claims we receive are from them.”
