Terms & Conditions for Ski Trips with 47North to the Alps

Reservations and Deposits
A deposit of $500, payable to 47North Adventures, is required to make a reservation for a 47North excursion. At this time excursions are limited to 30 persons; so reservations should be made as soon as possible. The deposit will be applied to the trip cost. Deposits can be transferred to other ski trips during the same season. After 90 days prior to the start of the trip, cancellation fees will apply. 47North Adventures accepts personal checks, PayPal bank transfers, Venmo, and Bank to Bank Transfers for deposits.
Ski and Snowboard Rental
Snowboard and ski trips offered by 47North include rental of VIP ski and snowboard equipment, excluding boots and helmets. There will be an added charge to rent those items. A participant can elect to bring their own equipment but will be responsible for excess airline baggage fees and any additional costs that may occur. Trip costs do include depoting of equipment at the resort.
47North assumes no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage of personal effects or for any injury or loss during the duration of our guided tours. 47North also assumes no responsibility for any personal expenses, such as airline tickets, as a result of a trip cancellation by an individual. 47North does not provide health/accident or travel insurance directly for the participant. We do recommend that participants obtain travel insurance and will facilitate purchase of such upon request. Travelers are also strongly advised to check with their health care insurer to verify coverage for medical expenses while overseas. Medicare does not provide coverage overseas.
47North will not assume responsibility for any agency or person who fails to provide contracted services for any of its ski trips. In such an event, alternate services will be sought. 47North also assumes no responsibility for lost or stolen items during the course of a trip. 47North reserves the right to cancel a trip for a participant at any time during the course of the trip.
