Terms and conditions of sale and delivery of the service of ESI APeak Montgenèvre (here in after referred to as APeak)
Registration for the services provided by the instructors of the ESI APeak Montgenèvre implies unconditional acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Reservation requests for services provided by the APeak instructors are made by telephone, our website, by email, by postal mail and/or by visiting our offices.
Registration and payment imply acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Any booking request is followed by a proposal by APeak for reservation established according to our availability and our organisation’ s capacity.
Only the full payment for this proposal will ensure confirmation of your reservation and a place in our lessons.
All the instructors teaching with APeak hold an official licence to teach skiing and similar disciplines.
The rates for APeak are presented in our brochure and on our website.
Prices include teaching provided by an instructor of APeak but exclude all other products (including but not limited to equipment, lift passes, insurance, transport, food and drink and accommodation), except in special cases.
As a result, the client and / or the student will:
· arrive at the scheduled time for the lessons
· have a valid ski pass and individual insurance to cover him/her against the risks inherent in the practice of mountain sports (civil liability, piste rescue, etc.).
Your booking offer must be confirmed by the payment of the entire amount. A proposal for reservation is a booking option. Without full payment, it may be cancelled without notice. Requests for change of reservation will be considered a cancellation of the original application. The new application will take its place in the chronological order of receipt by us. It may not be possible to accommodate a new reservation, especially at peak times.

6. LESSONS AND LEVELS
6.1 – Students benefit from each lesson depending on the level of their experience, expertise, fitness and attitude (and other factors), and depending on the snow and weather conditions.
Given that it is impossible for the instructors of APeak to check the level of each client and/or student prior to registration, the student is responsible for the technical choice that he/she selects according to the grid established by APeak.
As a result, APeak reserves the right to integrate the student in a group more suited to his/her level. The client/student cannot claim any refund or compensation as a result of these decisions.
6.2 – Conditions for group classes
The price paid by the student is normally calculated assuming a minimum of 4 students per level are present.
For three students present at the same level, the sessions will be provided for a period of 2 hours for 5 days. In case of two students present at the same level the session will be replaced with two 2,5 hours of lessons plus one 2 hour lessons. In the case of one person present, the session will be replaced with two 2- hours private lessons.
The lessons will be held open subject to sufficient numbers of participants.
Learning skiing and snowboarding takes place in a specific environment. Its practice imposes on the client and/or student a responsibility to personally ensure their own safety and that of others.
The responsibility of the instructor is limited to an obligation of leadership. It is essential that the client and/or the student respects the instructions and decisions of the instructor. These decisions will sometimes be made for safety reasons, and the instructor’s decisions are final and cannot be appealed.
The rates for APeak do not include personal insurance for customers. The client and/or the student is responsible for his equipment. The instructors cannot be held responsible for damage caused by this equipment or for its theft or damage. The professionals at APeak are covered by liability insurance. Each customer must ensure that he/she is covered by insurance covering the risks associated with the practice of the activity corresponding to the service booked. APeak cannot be held responsible in any way for the non-insurance of its clients.
APeak cannot be held responsible for injury or any other event which occurs during a course.
10. LIFT PASSES
APeak does not include ski lift costs within its rates. All students should arrive for their course with the appropriate lift pass already paid for and in their possession (except in special cases). APeak can advise on the appropriate lift pass to select. The course will not be delayed in starting if a student does not have a valid and appropriate lift pass, and no refund can be offered if a student misses part of a course.
11. GOVERNING LAW
