We advise our clients to take out adequate insurance to cover them in the case of cancellation.

Altitude declines all liability in the case of an accident that occurs during any lesson or company run event. Altitude reserves the right to cancel any session if payment is not settled in full before the lesson.

Altitude Ski & Snowboard School – Late Fee

Because of the nature of our business and the fact that we are often very busy and must move promptly from one session to another, we must insist on our guests being punctual. Instructors are asked to wait for clients for up to 45 minutes. If the client has not called our office or the instructor to say they will be late within this time the instructor is entitled to leave and the client will be liable for full payment of the lesson.

Lift passes and equipment are obligatory and are not included in our prices.
Participation in any of our activities does not include insurance. We strongly recommend that our clients have adequate medical cover.
