Booking, Cancellation, Limits, Insurance and Liability Policies
Limits to Group Travel (Fitness, Skills, Mountain Conditions)
Group trips and courses offered by Summit Mountain Guides are designed to meet the specific skills and prior experience of the guests. Each participant must take responsibility to accurately assess their background and physical condition to ensure they meet the perquisites so the group can travel safely together. Summit Mountain Guides reserves the right to deny participation to any unprepared individual at any time before or on the trip. If a participant is not sufficiently prepared or does not meet the physical fitness or skill level required for the program, Summit Mountain Guides is not responsible for achieving the original objective.
If weather or mountain conditions limit trip goals, Summit Mountain Guides reserves the right to change location of the program or reschedule the trip. We are not responsible for meeting advertised objectives should the travelling conditions limit safety.
Should the physical conditions, skills or equipment of participant(s) limit our program, Summit Mountain Guides reserve the right to make changes to an advertised program or cancel the trip / course for the safety and protection of the group. We do not offer any refund to unprepared guests.
If Summit Mountain Guides has to cancel a program due to insufficient enrolment, you will receive a full refund and notice of this change at least 60 days prior to trip start date. In the event of cancellation, we are not responsible for any expenses that may be incurred by guests in preparation of trip (equipment, clothing, transportation booking penalties, insurance purchase).
Please contact us if you need to cancel a booking. Cancellations must be made in writing by mail or email and refunds will be processed according to date received.
If changes are made more than 90 days in advance of the program, you will receive a full refund, less 15% administration fee. For cancellations made between 90 days and 60 days before program start, 50% of program fees will be refunded. Cancellations made 60 days or less before program start will not be eligible for a refund. For some programs a suitable participant may be found to replace your spot, in which case you may receive a refund, less 25% administration fee.
We recommend you purchase trip cancellation insurance in order to protect the potential of events occurring that make you unable to attend. Travel medical insurance for adventure travel should cover mountain activities you are involved in; read the fine print or call us for ideas on brokers. Ensure that you have adequate medical for the location your trip is occurring and should include coverage for evacuation or emergency rescue.
All participants must sign a waiver and release of liability form before participating in a trip or course with Summit Mountain Guides. Please ensure you have viewed the ACMG waiver form to become familiar with conditions. Note that youth under 19 must have a parent or guardian sign on their waiver and release form.
