Topic - Insurance for Ski Mountaineering Racing

NickBrown on 06 Dec 2013
I'm planning to do the Patrouille des Glaciers ski mountaineering race next May.
For most of my previous ski mountaineering/touring trips I've used BMC Insurance.
But I notice that it excludes competitive winter sports. :-(

https://www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/insurance/r/downloads/Policy%20Document.pdf
Section 4.F.III in General Exclusions.

We will not be liable to make any payment under
this Policy where:
4. any Claim is Due To:
F. Excluded sports and activities
You taking part in any of the following while
on a Journey:
III. competitive winter sports

Which I believe would meaning that I would not be covered when competing in the race.
This is somewhat disappointing as the BMC seems to recently been keen to promote Ski Mountaineer ing racing, with several race reports appearing on their website.
Being in Switzerland, where rescue and medical costs are high, this not a risk I'd like to take. Can anyone recommend Insurance cover that would include taking part in this race?
