Some FAQ's:

In resort, off piste skiing is covered. Out of resort, back country skiing is also covered. Our only requirement is that you are either in group of at least 3 (with a working phone or communication device) or with a qualified instructor.
Simply, no. The policy document reads: Cover excludes the participating in ski racing, ski-jumping, ice hockey, freestyle winter sports or the use of bob sleighs or skeletons.
Our policies are General Travel Insurance policies. So you're covered on and off the slopes.
Yes, up to the levels allocated to your policy type. Levels of cover can be viewed here. (Section G at the bottom)
With the set day packages (14, 28, 56) we don’t need you to tell us, at any point, when you will be skiing / snowboarding. In the event of a claim, the claims handlers will check your name against your ski pass and determine how many days you’ve used that way.
