Booking Conditions

Your deposit is non-refundable

The balance of the fee will be due one calendar month before the start of the course/guiding. If the booking is made within a month of the course/guiding, please send the full fee with the booking form. 

If you cancel for any reason and we cannot fill your date, we will expect you to pay the full fee as arranged and claim from your insurance company as appropriate. 

If we cancel for any reason, we will refund all your money.

We donate 1% of our income from UK bookings to Fix The Fells to support their excellent work in repairing footpaths in the Lake District.

Climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. By returning the booking form, you are stating that you accept these risks and that you are responsible for your own actions.

You must have suitable insurance cover - standard holiday insurance does not cover for adventurous activities. Both of the following providers offer flexible packages at competitive rates for a wide variety of activities.

Alpine mountaineering, climbing and skiing incur out-of-valley expenses, and you have to cover Chris’s expenses too. Please ensure you have read about these on the Essential Info for the Alps page.
