Thousands of people will be jetting off to the pistes in the coming weeks and months and one expert has written some key tips for skiing holidaymakers.

The Guardian has published advice from Jill Papworth aimed at ensuring skiing fans are prepared for every eventuality and, clearly, making sure you have the appropriate sports travel insurance is high on the list. The travel expert also stresses that insurance companies can legally withdraw cover if an accident occurs when local laws or local authoritative advice is not adhered to, so it is vital to stick to the rules.

From wearing helmets to following the dos and don'ts for pistes and snowboarding parks, it is essential to follow the rules to avoid invalidating your insurance. And checking that your cover is comprehensive enough is equally important. For people arranging the details of their own holiday as opposed to using a tour operator, it is crucial to make sure the insurance covers potential problems with delayed departures or accommodation if you can't get home.
