Only the written confirmations are authoritative for the acceptance of the bookings and the scope of the service. Verbal or telephone side agreements are only valid with explicit, written confirmation by the ski school.

2. course prices

The course prices according to the price list of the season are valid. The prices are in Euro including VAT. The group course prices refer exclusively to the booking of continuous, bound days. The costs for the lift pass and the equipment are NOT included in the course price.

3. withdrawal and cancellation

Cancellations must be made in writing by e-mail to info@skischule-oberstaufen.de.

4. force majeure – cancellation of courses

In principle, the courses take place in all weather conditions. Course times not used by the customer will not be refunded. The customer bears the risk of arriving on time. If a course has to be cancelled due to external conditions at least 24 hours before the start of the course, the course fees paid in advance will be refunded. The decision whether a course can not take place due to external conditions lies exclusively with the ski school.

If the course cannot take place for reasons of force majeure (e.g. storm, failure of lift facilities), no refund will be made. The ski school decides on the non-implementation or cancellation of a course.

5. refund in case of illness

A refund of the course in case of injury or illness is only possible with a certificate from a local doctor. The used course days will be calculated and the difference will be paid.

6. course organization and guarantee

The placement of the participant in the appropriate course is done by the ski school. Should it be necessary to change to another course class, this must be accepted by the customer. Otherwise, the ski school is entitled to cancel the contract.
If the number of participants is too low, the ski school has the right to combine groups of different course classes.
The ski school guarantees that the booked service corresponds to the contract, but without guaranteeing a certain learning success.
The ski school cannot guarantee that the booked course will be held by the same ski instructor every day.
It is not possible to change between a morning course and an afternoon course during the course.

In case of shortening the course time, the following rule applies:
2-3 participants: 2.0 hours
1 participant: 1,0 hours

8. helmet obligation and equipment

Helmets are compulsory for all participants during the course. The customer is requested to participate in the course only with properly maintained sports equipment and suitable clothing.

9. liability

The conclusion of a corresponding insurance, especially for participants from abroad, is expressly recommended.

The customer is obliged to inform the ski school comprehensively and truthfully about his abilities and experience in snow sports as well as about possible health restrictions.
The ski school does not provide compensation for lost items or lift tickets.
