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

There are three things to consider, Rescue, Injury and Public Liability.

Rescue = Rega
Injury = Compulsory accident insurance if you live in Switzerland
Public Liability = Third Party Liability insurance (Haftpflicht in the German speaking part) NB your third party policy may not cover you if you are shown to be negligent. i.e if you release an avalanche and cause injury or damage to someone else when the risk is 3 or above and you were riding in an area specifically warned about in the avalanche bulletin.

As a matter of interest how many people who go off piste can read the regional avalanche bulletin? It's in the language of the region.
