Winter Sports Insurance: Protect Yourself From Mishaps on the Slope

While winter is most often recognized as a time for holiday celebrations, it is also an excellent time for seasonal sports. Whether you enjoy skiing, snowboarding, hockey, ice fishing or snowmobiling, these sports and trips to mountain resorts are a common tradition in the SoCal area. As these activities continue to rise in popularity, participants should consider winter sports insurance to make sure the day is smooth… skiing.

What is Winter Sports Insurance and Why Do I Need It?

Winter sports insurance is a short-term add-on policy that gives you and your fellow visitors extra coverage to specifically address common issues that may arise when participating in winter athletics. Winter sports are often considered to be high-risk sports by insurers, which means injuries sustained while participating in them may not be covered under normal treatment coverage. Adding winter sports insurance compensates for this and can alleviate the cost of treatment should an accident occur. Many plans also offer additional benefits, such as covering the cost of lost or damaged equipment or lift passes, cancelled activities, and any liability you may have if you injure anyone else. You can add these insurance plans for just the amount of time you are participating, making them very affordable.

Whether traveling near or far to partake in the fun of a snow-filled day, consider speaking with one of our friendly agents about adding winter sports insurance. We’re here to make sure that no matter what happens on the slopes, you’ll be covered; that’s the Conrey Difference. To get in touch and see if winter sports insurance is right for you…

Why Leaves Change Color in Fall and Where You Can Go in Southern California To View Them

Many people are under the mistaken impression that they need to travel in order to find the beautiful colors of fall. Here in Southern California, we tend to associate fall with pumpkins, chilly weather, and shorter days but not with “leaf peeping”. The reality is that there are plenty of places to visit locally where you can experience the changing colors of fall. Read on to learn what causes these vibrant colors, and find out where you can go to view this colorful phenomenon in Southern California.

Red, Yellow, and Orange: How Do Leaves Get Their Colors?

Shortened days and colder weather signals to trees that winter is approaching. With less sunlight to photosynthesize, the chlorophyll, which normally give the leaves their green shade and which turn light to food, begin to degrade. As the chlorophyll degrades, the leaves lose their green color. At this time, trees produce anthocyanin, a reddish pigment whose purpose is to act as a sunscreen, protecting leaves as they transfer nutrients from the leaves to the base of the tree. This process prepares the trees to survive the harsh winters. Some scientists speculate that strong red colors signal a tree’s strength, which may deter insects who seek to use the trees’ nutrients to help their offspring survive the winter.

Fall Colors: How to Find Them in Southern California

In SoCal, locations, where fall colors are on full display, are often scarce. Our warm weather and drought-resistant plants make it difficult to find trees that display beautiful, natural fall colors. Luckily, there are some places where these colors thrive, and they often offer other fall surprises as well! Camping fanatics might enjoy a weekend up at Big Bear, where the fall colors come into full bloom along hiking trails. If you also enjoy fall flavors, particularly apples, then you may consider a trip to Oak Glen. There, you can sample freshly picked apples and hot cider donuts while viewing the beautiful colors. The Grass Lake Valley Reservoir, known for its scenery, may be a particularly scenic spot to view these colors- so bring a camera!

Here at Conrey Insurance Brokers, we want to encourage you to pursue the wonders that make fall so great. No matter where your journeys take you, be sure to appreciate the natural beauty that the season brings.
