One in three skiers and snowboarders sets off to the mountains without checking whether their travel insurance covers them winter sports.  It’s not the 20-something snowboarders and freestyle skiers that making this crazy mistake.  According to ABTA, it’s the 55 plus skiers who make this expensive mistake.
