All offers of the ski school are subject to change. For the acceptance of a reservation or the scope of our services, our written order confirmation is exclusively decisive. Verbal or telephone promises are only legally binding after written confirmation by the ski school.

For bookings on site (private and group courses) a contractual relationship is only established with the purchase of the necessary course tickets. The course tickets are not transferable. The customer receipt must be kept and presented for subsequent bookings. Extension of the group course ticket for the difference (plus processing fee) is possible from the 3rd day. Lift tickets are not included in the course price. All our prices are inclusive of the legal sales tax. Price lists are without guarantee. We are not liable for any printing errors.


3. Terms of payment

Before the beginning of the instruction, the contractual partner must independently arrange for the inspection of the ski equipment (ski bindings) by a specialized company.

The ski school declines any liability for accidents which occur during or before the lessons. The conclusion of an accident & liability insurance is the responsibility of each course participant and is recommended by the ski school.

The group division of the ski courses is done by the ski school. If a downgrading of a course participant is necessary, the course participant must accept the decision of the ski school. Otherwise the ski school is entitled to dissolve the contract.

Instructions of the ski school are to be followed by each course participant. The participation in courses in an alcoholised state or under the influence of drugs is not permitted. In this case the ski school can immediately exclude a course participant from further participation in a course without the person concerned being entitled to (partial) reimbursement of the paid course fee.

If the number of course participants in group courses is reduced to less than 4 persons, the ski school reserves the right to combine group courses or to reduce the teaching time for the remaining participants in the group.
