Thinking of getting an early season pass? If so, knock on wood that an injury doesn't end your season early. But if the unfortunate does happen, check out this option for season pass insurance.
Skier Insurance Services (SIS) recently launched a season pass insurance program for skiers and snowboarders. SKIER GUARD protects pass purchaser's investment if unexpected medical reasons prevent them from using the pass. The package includes:
Reimbursement for the value of an unused season pass on a pro-rata basis.
Emergency Evacuation up to $15,000 while skiing at the resort which issues the pass.
Accidental Death/Dismemberment up to $10,000 while skiing at the resort which issues the pass.Passholders may enroll for coverage anytime after a season pass is purchased. The cost is six percent of the pass price plus a $4 policy fee. Coverage will be available in Canada in late October.
