Winter Holiday Claim

Skiing continues to be one of the most popular winter holidays. Stunning scenery and exhilarating exercise lures thousands to Alpine resorts and further afield. However, anyone who skis knows someone who has suffered an injury or has themselves sustained one. By its very nature skiing as a holiday is only an occasional activity. Accidents can and do happen to skiers whatever their level of competence.

FactsFatigue is one of the most common factors.
