Insurance

On booking any tuition it is essential that you have adequate insurance cover. When booking any tuition / guiding other than beginner lessons please make sure your insurance covers you for off piste skiing. Some insurance policies only cover off piste skiing whilst under the guidance of a mountain guide or qualified instructors. If you intend to ski off piste, please check that your insurance has appropriate cover.

Missed lessons

There are no refunds if a client misses a tuition class. However, there may be unforeseen circumstances or conditions, which will force postponement or cancellation a session. In the event of postponement due to lift failure or weather we will endeavour to schedule make-up lessons; this cannot be guaranteed. Your insurance should cover missed tuition due to lift failure or weather. Your claim would be against the local lift company for lift failure. If we are forced to cancel due to staff sickness, we will endeavour to schedule make-up lessons or will refund tuition fees on a pro rata basis.

Children

All children under 12 must wear helmets and it is recommended that everyone else in the party does so too.

Risk

With any sport there is an element of risk involved that participants accept as inherent to that sport. Risk is something that attracts many to the sport; others prefer to participate with minimum risk involved. We will ensure that the safety of the group is never compromised. However, accidents at times can and do happen. Anyone participating in skiing does so knowing the elements of risk involved.

Safety

We make decisions on the mountain based on our experience, the prevailing snow and weather conditions and the level, ability, fitness and emotions of each skier in the group. These decisions are in the best interest of the safety and well being of the group and individuals. We ask that you respect these decisions.

Weather

Occasionally due to extreme weather conditions it is possible that all ski lifts may close for safety reasons with no skiing available. We are not liable for these unforeseen circumstances.

Snow

The Portes du Soleil has a good track record with snow. Occasionally the snow conditions may not be the best hoped for. In these circumstances we will run sessions to the best of our ability with the prevailing conditions, as long as sufficient lifts are operating.

Liability

I, as the client am aware that skiing/snowboarding is a hazardous sport that includes certain risks and dangers, including the risk of serious injury. I, as the client accept full responsibility for the risks inherent in skiing/snowboarding and the ski area/mountain environment. I agree to RELEASE and INDEMNIFY Patrick Morris from all claims for any injury or damage resulting from any cause, including negligence, which arises out of my participation.

If I am booking on behalf of other parties and minors, I recognise that I may not release any claims the minor may have. However, I accept full responsibility for all medical expenses incurred as a result of the minor’s participation. I also agree to RELEASE and INDEMNIFY Patrick Morris for any claims brought by or on behalf of the minor. This release is also binding as to any other persons, including family members, heirs and executors, but does not apply to gross negligence or intentional acts.
