I choose the Carré Neige that suits me, adapted to my needs and no more.
With « Carré Neige Intégral » coverage you can book your « ski-lift passes », « skiing lessons » and/or halte-garderie (sold by the ski schools) in advance with no worries. If you then have a health problem that prevents you going, or your holiday dates are changed, « Carré Neige Intégral » covers all that. And during your stay, you’ll have the benefit of full insurance cover adapted to your winter sport activity.
With « Carré Neige Nordique », you’ll be fully covered by a policy adapted to the demands of your Cross Country skiing and/or other nordic activites : payment of your rescue on the slopes, repatriation, refund of medical costs in addition of the refunds from your health organisation(s)… You cover yourself, and your family, and help limit the rescue and medical costs that can often be very expensive up in the mountains.
« Carré Neige Saison » is the snow sports insurance for the practise of ski reassured all the year.

You are finally covered during the practice of summer sports accessible with the « season pass ».

We were all really happy to be going skiing, the kids were booked into the ski school, all organised. But after two days our daughter became unwell, a serious gastroenturitis, end of holiday. Especially when the same evening our son went down with the same thing. Thanks to Carré Neige cover, our children’s unused days of « skiing lessons » and « ski-lift passes » were refunded in full.
As we had done every year, we booked our week’s family ski holiday. When i booked, the ski school asked if i’d be interested in a Carré Neige Intégral insurance just in case and I thought, why not ? It’s not going to add much to the cost. So I said yes. Then, 2 weeks before we were due to leave, my husband came home from work saying that his holiday dates had been changed. Disaster ! Everyone totally disappointed. But at least we got our money back for the classes and passes, thanks to Carré Neige.
I’m a good skier and I always thought there was no problem, no need. Anyway, I’d also always thought that my card insurance covered me at 100 percent for anything that could possibly happen. So, a perfect day’s skiing : sun, fresh snow, with a bunch of friends, having fun, making the most of the conditions, a bit of off-piste…right up to the point when I made a mistake edging . I lost it, and then I lost conscience. My friends organised the rescue. The rescue came and decided that it needed a helicopter. Result ? I wasn’t covered for recovery o ff-piste, nor for mountain rescue… 1938 Euros of helicopter costs. Ouch ! Since then, I’ve done the same as my friends, Carré Neige Insurance every time, it makes total sense !
Every year, with my group of friends, we try to spend a day exploring the mountains. This particular time we’d decided to do cross-country skiing. It’s not too challenging and everyone was happy with the idea. As we were buying our passes the cashier asked if we’d like Carré Neige Nordique insurance. We hadn’t heard of it but decided to take it anyway. Generally speaking, I don’t really believe in coincidence. But a badly-fitted binding and a bit of a skid-out later and the damage was done. Off for a ride on the rescue sledge, which took me straight to the nearest doctor’s surgery. Verdict ? Sprained ankle. Total panic at this point, how am I going to get my car home from the mountains with a sprained ankle ? Carré Neige Nordique made sure I was rescued from where I was, taken away and treated, then taken home, and so was my car too.
