Terms and Conditions

GENERAL PARTICIPATION, TRAVEL AND CONTRACTUAL CONDITIONS of the Mammut Alpine School (MAS)

The Mammut Alpine School mountain school, hereafter referred to as MAS, organizes courses and tours in the mountains with and on behalf of trained mountain guides or hiking leaders. MAS undertakes only administrative tasks such as organization, reservations, advertising and collection of payments.
Each mountain guide or hiking leader decides and handles operational performance and the safety of participants on these courses and tours. Each mountain guide or hiking leader holds a valid mountain guide or hiking leader license, including all legally stipulated insurance, such as liability insurance, own accident insurance, etc. MAS enters contracts only with accredited, experienced and competent mountain guides and hiking leaders.

1. Scope
These General Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) apply subject to any contradictory written agreement and subject to any contradictory contractual terms and conditions according to the individual travel brochure for our package tour contracts.

2. Registration/Conclusion of the Contract
Registrations must be made using the official registration form (electronic or the tear-out form in the brochure). Upon registration, these General Terms and Conditions form part of the contract between the participant and the organizer MAS. Registration is binding. We will send written confirmation on receipt of your registration.

3. Participants
By registering, participants state that they meet the requirements for taking part in the trip and for the tours. The detailed program specifies the physical requirements and the daily walking times. If a participant does not have the required physical condition, and if this results in additional costs being incurred during the trip, the participant shall be obliged to pay these costs. Participants must be at least 18 years old. Young people aged 16 or older may take part only if accompanied by an adult.
Equipment complying with the EC standard is also required.

4. Booking Errors and Customer Service
In the event of any difficulties when making a booking, participants must contact MAS immediately to allow corrective action to be taken and ensure the smooth completion of the booking process.
If it is not possible to contact MAS outside office hours in connection with a booking error, participants are obliged to keep any damages potentially incurred as a result of the booking error as low as possible.
If the participant fails to notify MAS of a booking error or similar issue, he or she must then bear the resulting damages. The limitation of liability stated in the "Liability" section also applies to booking errors.

5. Minimum Number of Participants
If a minimum number of participants is required for the trip to take place and this is stated in the detailed program, if this minimum number of participants is not reached, the participant will be notified, in the case of events of 3 days or more, 5 days before the start of the course and, in the case of events of less than 3 days, notification shall be provided by noon on the day before the start of the course. If possible, an alternative program shall be suggested. If the participant does not accept this program, the course fees already paid shall be refunded. No further claims exist.

6. Groups
MAS places particular emphasis on a positive group experience. This requires each participant to show tolerance, adaptability and understanding for the different abilities present within a difficulty level. MAS reserves the right to exclude from a course or tour any participant who fails to integrate in the group, with no entitlement to a refund.

7. Insurance
By registering for a trip, participants state that they have sufficient insurance coverage. As well as comprehensive accident and health insurance which is also fully valid for this trip (including risks in mountain terrain, recovery and rescue costs), insurance covering cancellation of travel and individual return travel costs is mandatory. Participants are responsible for arranging their own insurance. We recommend joining the Swiss Air-Rescue service as a sponsor.

8. Program Amendments
Our courses and tours take place in all weather conditions. Participants must be prepared for extensive amendments to planned programs and, in particular, areas. The mountain guide or hiking leader reserves the right to amend the program. By registering, participants state their agreement to transfers of their booking to other areas and to different tours or day programs. Any additional costs will be invoiced to the participant.

8.1 Cancellation of the Course/Tour by the Organizer
In principle, any tour and any course with sufficient participants shall take place. Participants share the risk concerning weather or adverse tour conditions. They must be prepared to accept extensive amendments in relation to the program, area, journey and accommodation. Any additional costs will be charged to the participant. If a tour is canceled due to adverse conditions, bookings will be transferred, or a credit note or refund issued. In the event of a refund, an administration cost contribution of CHF 60.00 will be deducted.

9. Price
The services included in our prices are contained in the corresponding descriptions. In the case of sales subject to VAT, VAT is included in our prices.

10. Single Rooms
No guarantee can be provided for single rooms. We reserve the right to accommodate persons traveling alone in single rooms at a corresponding additional charge.

11. Rental Equipment
Orders for rental equipment must be placed no later than two weeks before the start of the course. Otherwise, any packaging and postage costs will be charged.

12. Payment Terms
On receipt of confirmation of registration and the invoice, we shall await your payments according to the details stated on the invoice. In the event of any delay in payment of invoices, MAS shall be entitled to reject the participant's registration and invoice additional costs.
In the case of payments made by credit card, the price will be debited automatically from the credit card. If payment cannot be collected from the specified credit card account as a result of insufficient coverage, MAS shall be entitled to invoice an additional processing fee of CHF 20.00.

13. Cancellation of a Trip
13.1. Cancellation of a trip by MAS
If the minimum number of participants (see Figure 5 above) is not reached, MAS may cancel the trip at short notice and withdraw from the contract or transfer participants' bookings to other areas. Other assurances according to the detailed program remain reserved.
13.2. Cancellation of a trip by the Participant
In the case of cancellation of a trip by the participant, he or she must notify MAS accordingly by registered letter. The calculation shall be based on the arrival of the letter; in the case of Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays, the next working day shall apply. The following cancellation charges apply to registrations and withdrawals for any reason, whether in situations involving fault or otherwise:
up to 40 days before the start of the course:  
CHF 100.00
39 to 31 days before the start of the course: CHF 200.00
30 to 22 days before the start of the course: 50% of the invoice amount
21 to 10 days before the start of the course: 80% of the invoice amount
09 to 00 days before the start of the course: 100% of the invoice amount
13.3. Dropping out of a Course/Tour by the Participant
No refund will be issued if a participant drops out of or leaves a course or tour before the end. Any additional costs will be invoiced to the participant.

14. Liability
By making a booking, participants acknowledge the risks in high-altitude terrain. Even a qualified mountain guide or hiking leader is not infallible, as in areas away from marked paths, he or she will be confronted with limits which can never be completely mastered. His or her role can therefore only be to reduce the risk to a minimum. MAS' liability is excluded for slight negligence, fault on the part of participants, third-party fault or force majeure. In all cases, our liability is limited to twice the package price, with the exception of damages attributable to deliberate actions or gross negligence.

15. Foreign Treks/Trips
Special conditions apply to our foreign treks or trips.

16. Photographic Material
Our mountain guides and hiking leaders often take photographs during tours and, from time to time, participants send us photographic materials after a tour. Participants state their agreement to the use of these images for the MAS photo gallery and advertising materials (e.g. brochures, website, flyers).

17. Data Protection
MAS uses customer data for the purposes of processing registrations and for sending its own catalogs and newsletters. Customer data will also be forwarded to the relevant tour leaders and group members for organizational purposes. Customers who do not agree to their data being forwarded to the other participants must state this in their registration.

18. Applicable Law and Place of Jurisdiction
Swiss law applies exclusively to the contractual relationship agreed between the participant and MAS. The place of jurisdiction is Lenzburg.

19. Guarantee
We are a member of the Guarantee Fund of the Swiss travel industry. This allows us to guarantee the sums paid in connection with package tour bookings.
