Re: 1 stop ski/ travel insurance

I am looking for a 1 stop insurance cover (recovery, transportation & repatriation, end to end medical) for skiing that includes unguided off piste, similar to that offered by the Ski Club of Great Britain (and many others in the UK), and that bundles travel insurance (accident/ personal, cancellation, luggage etc)

Ideally this would cover both Switzerland AND EU (though I will mostly ski in the EU). Has anyone been through this search already?

I've read all the threads (Extreme sports/ mountain rescue/ ski insurance) on EF I can find on ski insurance and mountain rescue, and it looks like the recommendations have been a portmanteau of options:

TCS, Worldwide insure, Zurich, Axa etc
REGA
Austrian Alpine club
French Club Alpin
Carre/ Carte Neige

One thing to add, I'm not working at the moment so I don't have the accident insurance I would otherwise have, though I do have liability insurance (hence excluding it above).

Many thanks in advance

If you live in CH you have to have accident insurance by law, if your registered with RAV it will be deducted from your payout. If not you have to tell your health insurance & they will add accidents.

Carte neige for 80 euro will get you off the mountain & repatriate you home. They will pay some of the medical costs.
