All prices are in Canadian Dollars. 5% GST is normally applicable on top of the advertised price.
E-mail money transfer is my preferred method of payment. Please contact me for details for other methods of payment including credit cards.
A 35% non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a spot on all trips/courses, except AST courses when the full payment is due at the time of booking. Any remaining balance is due 6 weeks prior to the program start to secure your spot, or I reserve the right to sell it to the next available person. Once full payment is received, I am unable to refund your money. Should you be able to find a suitable replacement, they will be permitted provided they meet all the requirements of the program.
In the unlikely event that I need to cancel a program for any reason (including COVID-19 related), your payment will be refunded in full.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, if you are unable to sign the declaration of health and exposure at the start of your trip, I will credit you the value for a future trip or course minus any expenses incurred.
It is recommended that you purchase travel insurance, medical insurance, and trip cancellation insurance in case of unforeseen circumstances. In the unlikely event of an emergency in the field, participants may be responsible for costs associated with a rescue.
All participants in my programs are required to sign the Release of Liability, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement at the start of the program. Please read and understand the waiver(s) below in advance.
For participants in AST programs, an additional waiver for Avalanche Canada will also need to be signed.
If you have any medical condition or injury that may compromise the safety of yourself or others, please let me know before booking. Should I determine that you are not capable of completing the program safely, or that your condition may compromise the safety of others, you may not be allowed to participate and I will not process your payment. You will be required to fill out a medical form when signing your waiver above.
Transportation, Food, National Park Passes
Transportation and food are not included with any of my programs unless stated otherwise, so please ensure you arrange this in advance. National Park Passes are also not included, which sometimes need to be arranged in advance.
Additional Requirements during COVID-19
Please review the ACMG COVID-19 Best Practices, which have been established in-line with industry standards during the pandemic and I will be doing my best to follow.
