2. Modification of Services
Given the organization and planning required to provide the Instructional Services, the activities cannot be modified during the two (2) days that precede the start of the activity.
Prior to this two (2) day period, modifications (times, number of people, level) can be made to the activity, subject to availability of instructors, with any additional cost being disclosed to the Customer for the Customer’s consent.
To take part in activities, you should be in good health, (contact us if you have concerns), be suitably equipped and dressed for booked activities, and follow the instruction given by the professional staff.
The instructors will assess whether or not a programme may take place. They will consider the weather, the snow conditions and the ability of the participants.
5. Weather conditions
Once we have made the decision to run an activity, it will not be cancelled or postponed because of the weather nor will any refund or deferment be made.
Apart from the legal liability insurance, our services do not include personal insurance.
7. Helmet use
Because snow sports entail risks, the use of a helmet is required for children under age 13 and is highly recommended for all participants.
