Consider purchasing travel insurance…
GLOBAL RESCUE: We include basic medical evacuation coverage (at $9.50 USD per day) as a line item on most trip invoices, provided by Global Rescue. It covers up to $250,000 USD in medical evacuation / field rescue (it’s optional – adult clients can waive this by emailing us). But, Global Rescue is not insurance – it does not pay for medical treatment, it only pays for your rescue and medical transport. This evacuation coverage is a “minimum” level and we suggest that you consider adding on a full-featured travel insurance policy below.
TRAVEL INSURANCE: We recommend two providers of travel insurance: Global Rescue Signature by IMG and World Nomads Travel Insurance . Both policies cover medical treatment abroad, lost luggage, rental gear, flight delay-related costs and much more. If you miss days of the program, get injured or can’t attend because of a covered reason, they’ll reimburse you for the days of the program you miss! Note: We’re not insurance agents, so read all policy materials before purchasing. Coverage varies by state/country of residence.
Reserve your photo package… (optional)
Professional photo packages are available at SASS Canada. Hire our longtime professional photographer Ben Girardi to follow you around like a pro. The trees and sheer depth of snow provide spectacular imagery and your experience at SASS Canada will be one you do not want to forget.
