Snow School Terms & Conditions

  • Skiing and snowboarding are regarded as extreme activities. Inherently there is always the risk of injury. Snow School instructors have all been trained and assessed by either national or international governing bodies in safe teaching practice. Ultimately it is impossible to reduce the risk of injury to zero. 
  • Natural Retreats have the right to change or cancel the product at any given time. This could be for a multitude of reasons including, but not limited to, severe weather, conditions deemed unsafe, and instructor absence. 
  • Once lessons have gone past 12pm there will be no refund if the class has to stop. 
  • When refunding a multiday product, the refund will be the difference between the total paid less the number of days completed. For example, if a customer has purchased a 4 day package and due to lessons being cancelled only receives 2 days, then the 2 day package price will be charged and the difference between a 4 day package and a 2 day package will be refunded. 
  • Lesson cancellations 7 days out will be entitled to a full refund. Between 7 days and 48hrs notice you will be entitled to 50% refund. Cancellations with less than 48hrs notice will not be entitled to a refund.

  • If 3 or less people are booked for group lessons, the class will run for only 2hrs in the morning 10am to 12pm.
