DON’T DRINK AND SKI – that’s the message the Post Office Travel Insurance are telling us! 39% of holiday makers have admitted to suffering hangovers whilst on a ski trip and it’s what the Post Office are calling the Apres Ski-After Effect! It’s not only the morning after either, as many holiday makers have boozy lunches before hitting the slopes again, something medics say not only leads to more accidents but if the patient is deemed to have consumed excessive alcohol this could potentially invalidate the insurance cover. And it’s exactly this The Post Office want to make people aware of.

To put this to the test I took part in a very high tech medical test conducted by The Post Office Travel Insurance and TV’s Dr David Bull. Yes, I had to conduct my way down a run on a ski simulator, then help myself to the contents of the free bar upstairs (purely on medical grounds, of course, doctors orders, if you like!) Next step was to get back on the simulator to see the effects the drink had on my skiiing. Not only that but I had to be breathalysed and take part in all the medical tests you would be subjected to if you were pulled over by the police for drink driving!

Of course, I found it hard balancing on one leg and looking at the ceiling whilst sober – as for the ski simulator…well, there must have been a technical problem (I scored 16/30?! And that was before the drink!) But The Post Office proved their point with everyone else who attended the special event (those whose hand-eye coordination was somewhat better than mine!) And of course it makes sense, you wouldn’t drink and drive, you wouldn’t get into your car and navigate it down an icy hill during a hangover when you still had alcohol in your blood stream imparing your senses, so why put yourself and others at risk on the slopes? Otherwise it could turn out to be very costly if your insurance doesn’t cover you….
