How to enjoy the safest winter sports
The snow season and the need to ensure against accidents that we may suffer in the practice of winter sports begins. According to the latest study carried out by InterMundial’s Business Analytics team, 65% of incidents on ski trips are accidents, the cost of which can exceed 24,000 euros if they occur abroad and require rescue on the slopes, hostpitalisation and repatriation.
Other incidents are falls (13.6%) and collisions (5.3%) with other skiers or objects, which can cause contusions, fractures, trauma and injuries (13.8%) with varying degrees of severity.
Problems with means of transport accounted for 7.2% of incidents, especially delays in departure, cancellation or overbooking. Finally, the loss of services is frequent (4.1%) such as classes, ski pass, excursions, accommodation, due to adverse weather conditions.
