Changes of instructors are possible due to our flexible organisation.

The allocation of groups to ski courses is conducted by the Bödmen-Baad Ski School. If it is necessary to assign the participant to a lower skill group during the course, the customer has to accept this decision. Otherwise, the Ski School Bödmen-Baad is entitled to termination of the contract.

6. Liability

The Bödmen-Baad Ski School does no accept any liability whatsoever for accidents, which occur during, prior to or subsequent to ski, snowboard or cross-country skiing tuition. It is the responsibility of course participants to take out accident and liability insurance.

The customer must inform the Bödmen-Baad Ski School truthfully and in full about his skills and experience. Similarly, the customer must inform the Bödmen-Baad Ski School in full about his health and any health problems.

The services provided by the Bödmen-Baad Ski School may at every skills level place high demands on the material and on the physical fitness and skiing technique of the participant. Every customer is therefore requested to ensure that he or the participants, for whom he has booked the course, particpates/participate in the services booked only with faultless, maintained sports equipment and the usually prescribed safety equipment. The participant's own performance capacity must be realistically assessed in this process.

The customer is notified that failure to wear a crash helmet may give grounds for contributory fault of the course participant, for which reason it is recommended that crash helmets and other safety equipment recommended for the service booked in each case are worn.

7. Withdrawal/ cancellation conditions

You can at any time cancel an online booking without giving reasons. No costs are incurred. Cancellation must be notified to the ski school in writing or by e-mail at the latest 3 days prior to the start of the course. Cancellation 1 - 2 days prior to the start of the course is possible only with a doctor's certificate. If a travel warning for our region is announced, cancellation at short notice is also possible. This negative booking applies also for online bookings of ski and snowboard material in our in-house ski rental. 

On start of private lessons and group courses a refund for payment already made, is possible only in the case of accident and illness, subject to the submission of the original receipt (course ticket) and with a doctor's certificate from a local doctor. Only unused days shall be refunded (remaining amounts).

Courses cancelled due to weather conditions (force majeure) or breakdowns of the cable car lift systems are not refunded.

Courses take place regardless of the weather conditions. The course ticket is not transferable, course days not used cease to apply.
