General terms

Booking and reservations of ski and snowboard lessons

The ski school Fankhauser disclaims any liability for accidents that occur during, before or after the ski lesson. Accident and liability insurance is the responsibility of the participants. Course fee refunds due to injury or illness only with a doctor's certificate. Courses cancelled due to weather conditions (force majeure) or cableway failure will not be replaced. Private lessons take place in all weather conditions. The course ticket is not transferable. Any unused lesson times (or days) expire!  In the event that a group is reduced to less than 4 participants, we reserve the right to merge these with other groups, reduce the course time or payout the differential of the course fee. Repeated teacher exchange is possible due to the flexible organization.
