European Cancellation Policy
Cancelling a course will result in the loss any deposit paid at the time of booking or full payment for accommodation only options. Cancelling less than 6 weeks prior to the start of the course will result in the attendee being liable to pay to Maverix Snow Ltd the full cost of the course less any deposit paid prior to the cancellation. Cancellations or any changes to the original booking must be notified IN WRITING ONLY to Maverix Snow Ltd via email@example.com. Until you receive confirmation of your cancellation the booking will stand.
Verbal instructions to cancel must be confirmed in writing to be acted upon. This is standard practice. Final payments are required no later than 4 weeks prior to the start of the course. For bookings placed under 4 weeks, then full payment will be required immediately. You will be sent an email 6 weeks prior to your course date where you must re-instate your intent to attend the course. If we do not hear back from you within 5 working days, your place on the course will be open to other clients.
European Insurance Information
Attendees should arrange suitable insurance in place to cover for unfortunate accidents, injuries or missed courses. No monies will be refunded by Maverix Snow Ltd where a course is curtailed as a result of an injury sustained either before or whilst participating in the course or for any other reason such as the need to return home early because of a family bereavement.
In such an instance, the only way for an attendee to recover any costs is by making a claim on his or her own insurance policy. To assist you with this process, Maverix Snow Ltd can raise a cancellation invoice.
Maverix Snow Ltd cannot be held responsible for arranging insurance or processing claims.
Insurance polices should cover curtailment and cancellation as well as medical, repatriation insurance and any other risks, such at theft and additional activities you wish to attend whilst attending a course including off-piste riding in the winter and summer and snow park (freestyle) riding in the winter and summer.
It is the responsibility of the attendee to check that the insurance is in place an that is is adequate for the requirements of the course.
In addition there will be no refunds for attendees who are unwilling or unable to complete sections of the coaching course. Attendees should make sure they are at the required skill level, as riders who do not meet the required standards will be unable to complete their course and will not be offered a refund.

OUR AGREEMENT WITH YOU
ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR BOOKING: When we receive your booking deposit, we will send you confirmation which acts as our acceptance of your booking. A binding contract between us comes into existence when we issue the confirmation which is subject to English Law and the jurisdiction of English courts.
OUR PRICE PROMISE: Whilst everything commercially possible will be done to avoid the need to levy surcharges, the total holiday price may however be subject to surcharges in relation to Government or any other government actions (such as VAT increases), a drop in exchange rates. Your holiday and all, instruction and lift passes are priced at the exchange rates listed below. Any drop in the exchange rate may result in these items being re-invoiced at the revised exchange rates. In these cases we will absorb a total amount equivalent to 2% of the relevant price (which excludes insurance and amendment charges). In the unlikely event of needing to surcharge, only amounts in excess of 2% will be charged plus an administration fee not exceeding £1 and/or an amount to cover travel agents commission. We reserve the right to increase or decrease prices at any time prior to a booking being made.
IF WE CHANGE YOUR HOLIDAY: It is unlikely that we will have to make any alteration to your booking. However, as holidays are planned months in advance you will understand that we reserve the right to make changes to holidays and web site details both before and after you book. If a significant change to your holiday arrangements is made, we will advise you as soon as reasonably possible (if there is time before departure) when you will have the choice of; a. accepting the changed arrangements or b. purchasing another available holiday from us (and paying or receiving a refund in respect of any price difference) or c. cancelling your holiday and receiving a full refund of all monies paid to us.
IF WE CANCEL A HOLIDAY: We may sometimes be forced to cancel a holiday as all holidays operate subject to a minimum number of clients. We will not however cancel your holiday less than 4 weeks before departure, unless we are forced to do so as a result of "Force Majeure" as described in these conditions. A situation could arise, whereby circumstances amounting to "Force Majeure" as defined in these conditions force us to cancel your holiday within 4 weeks of departure or curtail your holiday after the date of departure. In such a very unusual situation we regret that beyond any money recoverable by us we could not make any refunds, pay compensation or be responsible for any costs or expenses incurred by you.
DEALING WITH COMPLAINTS: In the event of a complaint we will try to settle it swiftly and amicably.
FORCE MAJEURE - IMPORTANT: Liability cannot be accepted where delays, changes or cancellations or the non-performance or improper performance of our obligations in whole or in part, are caused by events amounting to Force Majeure, (i.e. any event which we or the supplier of the services in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid.) This includes events such as war or threat of war, riots or civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather, poor snow conditions, high winds, traffic conditions, closure of resorts or mechanical failure or other circumstances amounting to Force Majeure. We will of course use our best endeavours to help resolve any situation.
Helmets and Protection Equipment
Use of an approved snow helmet is mandatory for all attendees. Protective armour, including back, knee, elbow, wrist and impact shorts is also recommended for all attendees.
