General terms and conditions + travel conditions

1. Registration: Please register for your chosen offer using the online registration form. An early registration makes our work easier and guarantees you a free place. After receiving your registration you will receive a personal email confirmation. With the registration, these general terms and conditions become part of the contract between you and ROCKnSNOW.

2. Insurance: Each of our guides who work with us as a state-certified mountain guide, canyon guide, mountain bike guide, hiking guide or paraglider tandem pilot has comprehensive liability insurance. Otherwise, the participants are not insured by the organizer. We recommend that you take out adequate accident insurance yourself.

3. Payment: All prices are adapted to the Zillertal and Austrian mountain guide tariffs.  A person-related tariff applies to our tours.  A higher price applies for one person and for 2 people (minimum tariff). From 3 people the person-related single price applies (group tariff).

All our prices are calculated fairly. Leading in the mountains is a demanding task with a lot of  knowledge and experience behind it. That is why this service must have its fair price.

4. Lack of requirements:  Anyone who is physically fit or able to meet the requirements can take part in the events offered by ROCKnSNOW. The leader is entitled to exclude participants from the event if these obviously / recognizably do not meet the requirements. In this case there is no money back!

5. Cancellation by the organizer before the start of the event:  If too few participants take part in an offer or there are other circumstances (dangerous weather conditions, security, official measures or other force majeure) that prevent the offer from being carried out, the organizer can at short notice  withdraw from the contract. If the customer does not want to or cannot rebook any of the alternative offers offered to him, he will of course be reimbursed for the payments made (minus the services already used). Further compensation claims are excluded.

6. Program changes before the start of the event: Our offers take place regardless of the weather. We reserve the right to change the program for reasons such as bad weather, danger of avalanches, unfavorable conditions, safety. By accepting the general terms and conditions, the participants declare that they agree to this fact. Any additional costs will be charged to the participant or reduced costs will be reimbursed. No reduced costs will be reimbursed for changes to the program that are due to a lack of constitution, concentration and fitness of the participants.

7. Minimum number of participants:  If the number of participants is insufficient, we are entitled to cancel the  offer or to create another attractive offer for which several participants have already  registered. If you do not want this new offer, we will of course reimburse you in full for the payments  you have already made. If you still want the offer to be carried out, we will make you a newly calculated offer. If you agree to the newly calculated price, a new contract will be concluded.

The organizer is not liable for disadvantages and damage of any kind if these were caused through no fault of the organizer or an auxiliary person of the organizer. The organizer assumes no liability for unauthorized participants and failure to follow the instructions! We want to expressly point out that every kind of movement in nature involves a certain residual risk. By booking your offer, you confirm that you are largely responsible and accept the residual risk.

9. Guarantee: Mountaineering is an outdoor activity and is therefore linked to the unpredictability of the forces of nature. As a result, we cannot guarantee success in the mountains.

Furthermore, there is a risk of high alpine dangers (such as avalanches, falling rocks, etc.) when snowboarding or skiing in open terrain, which can also lead to  injuries and be life-threatening.  The participant is aware of this risk and will therefore independently check whether the recommended take-off and landing site, the flight route and also the weather are suitable for the execution of the flight and will only carry out the flight independently if he meets the conditions for the execution has considered the flight to be suitable for himself. Likewise, he will only undertake a descent with a snowboard or ski on his own responsibility if, in his opinion, the terrain, the snow conditions and his ability allow a safe descent.
