Expatriate medical insurance policyholders who are still hoping to go skiing this winter could be disappointed to learn that there are not too many cheap deals around.
According to Josephine Wiggall Lazarus, UK director of tourism at Destination Quebec, extreme sports fans "better get on with it" and book somewhere soon.
Skiing and snowboarding can be dangerous sports at any time of the year, and accidents can happen to anyone, regardless of their skill level.
Some international health insurance provides will require skiers to take out extra cover in order to prevent against paying out large bills for medical treatment in the event of a fall or collision.
Ms Lazarus noted that many travellers are tending to book "shorter, quick, sharp breaks" of around seven days in Montreal, which gives them time to explore the region, spend "a few nights in the mountains and do a detox and a city".
