Re: Off piste boarding / skiing : am i insured?

Good advice here. Problem is so many quickly reach the technical ability to go off piste, but do not have basic mountain knowledge, general and local, and do not understand how layers affect risk. You really need to check with your Insurance, as read the small print very carefully. REGA is an amazing organisation, but are becoming very wary of of piste boarders/skiers who do not study local conditions, do not seek local advice from experts re the season's history/layers. A young doctor from the REGA was killed last year by an avalanche. And in recent years many have been killed rescuing people who were taking just stupid risks in extreme avalanche warning areas.

Take care , enjoy.
