Ski Course Booking Conditions
Ski course bookings are made with Ali Ross Skiing Clinics. It is a condition of booking that you have full winter sports and travel insurance,which must include,inter alia,cancellation and curtailment for whatever reason. We cannot be responsible for inadequacies in your insurance cover in this regard.
Upon receipt of the invoice by the client, a deposit of £100 per person is required . Bookings are held for seven working days to allow deposits to be paid. Receipt of deposit confirms your booking. If no deposit is received within this time, the booking will automatically lapse.
Deposits are non-refundable, but can be transferred to another course within the current season if space is available. We accept electronic transfer ( or cheques if necessary.)
Personal Performance Clinics are payable by separate arrangement. Please contact us for booking details.Terms and Conditions also apply to PPCs.
Must be paid 8 weeks before the start of the course. If no balance is received by this time, we reserve the right to cancel the booking, and retain the deposit by way of a cancellation charge.
Minimum level of skiing
The minimum level of skiing to join the Skiing Clinics is outlined above. Please be honest with yourself as it is in no-one's interest if your skiing level is considerably below our requirements. We sometimes have slightly different levels within a group and can adapt the course accordingly so that no-one feels that they are holding the rest up or equally, that their time is being wasted waiting for slower skiers. However, in rare cases, you may be asked to leave the group if collective progress is being impeded or safety could be compromised.
Accommodation and Travel
Ali Ross Skiing Clinics provide the ski courses only. We do not handle either accommodation or travel arrangements ourselves. These are the responsibility of the client, but suggestions can be found by following these links:
