Hi UKC,

I'm moving to Chamonix in a couple of weeks (for a year+) and am trying to work out the cheapest/best way to get insurance to cover Alpine climbing and offpiste/touring as well as include the normal health insurance.

Normally when going away I'd just get BMC insurance but they are limited in length and expensive, so I guess just not designed for what I need. There are a couple of ski seasonaire companies that include touring and skiing off piste but mention nothing about climbing.

Is there a policy/company anyone could recommend?

Thanks!
(I've looked through for previous threads asking the same question but couldn't see one... sorry if that's not the case).

BTW even though I'm working in Cham I'm getting paid in the UK not France.

I used to work seasons in Cham and started off having snow card they would tailor it for the entire season, not sure they will cover a yr plus. Give them a try they might
