As mountain rescue is very expensive, the French Ski Federation advises all its members to take out insurance guarantees. With its Snow Card License, it offers various optional insurance formulas that meet everyone's needs, at advantageous pricing conditions reserved for its licensees. These insurance options offer guarantees adapted to sports activities practiced in the mountains, in winter and summer, in France and around the world.
