If you are unlucky or careless enough to be caught in an avalanche you may up this way. You may be wishing you had purchased medical insurance too, as airlifts and rescues are paid-for-services and not free like in many parts of N. America where it is provided by the local ski area. In Europe, there is no out of bounds, so you are free to decide to go where you wish, but you are also responsible for your choices. No one to sue here. So you are on your own. Take extra medical coverage including extraction insurance just in case.
