Bad Weather or Resort Closure
If the resort is completely closed we will do our best to reschedule lessons where possible. If the resort is open (or partly open) the lesson will go ahead as planned.

Skiing and snowboarding are hazardous activities and you undertake them at your own risk. Full skiing insurance is strongly advised, as we cannot be held responsible for any injury, losses or accidents which occur during your lesson. The instructors will choose the appropriate terrain for the level of skiers or boarders in their lessons. This may or may not be between the piste markers or off-piste if deemed appropriate by the instructor.
In some lessons and clinics your instructor might include some off-piste skiing away from the piste markers. Please ensure that you have adequate insurance to ski off-piste. In some off-piste-specific sessions you will be required to wear avalanche safety equipment. If you don’t have any we can advise you where you can hire it. We reserve the right to remove clients from these sessions if appropriate safety equipment is not used by the client.
We are always sorry if you cannot make the lessons that you have booked; but if you are unable to attend the lesson on the day, we will not issue a refund for the missed lesson or reschedule. We are happy to provide a letter for your insurance company in this instance.
Payment is required in full at the time of booking (unless otherwise arranged). In the event of cancellation by you for whatever reason, reimbursement will be calculated as follows: 28 days or more from the date of the first lesson on the booking: refunded 70% of lesson price; 11 – 27 days: refunded 50% of lesson price; 10 days or less: no refund.
