From the comfort of my sofa I've been reading about the ski season this year, the deals to be had, the quality of the snow and the activities to try out once you've quit the piste for the day. I came across a relatively new experience called MTB on snow - yes, you have guessed right you cycle down the piste on a bike.

This activity is offered at certain locations in the French Alps. Before you wonder about additional hazards as you ski of board your way down the piste,  the activity only starts once the piste has closed for the day. Full protective clothing is required including, knee and elbow protectors, a helmet and a spinal guard as you can land with rather a bump.

My other concern when reading the article was whether your standard winter sports policy would cover you for this extreme activity. This is just the type of activity you decide to try once you've arrived at your location and see it advertised or see people prepare to take the lift up in the evening. If you are tempted to give MTB on snow a go then check your policy wording carefully before you leave and if you need to get additional cover make sure you do!
