Unless explicitly agreed otherwise, our General Terms and Conditions shall apply to all transactions between Schischulen Wurzeralm and our customers. The object of the enterprise is the operation of a snow sports school (ski school). This includes, in particular, services such as the teaching of the skills and knowledge of the ridge and snowboard (without guarantee of a specific training success) as well as the guiding and accompanying of the reed and snowboard.
2. Contract conclusion for offers, online price inquiry and prices
Reservations for private lessons can be made via the Internet, by telephone or by fax. Reservations are only valid after written confirmation by Schischulen Wurzeralm. The offers of the Schischulen Wurzeralm are free. For the acceptance of the reservation and the scope of the service only our written order confirmation is decisive. Verbal or telephone supplementary agreements shall only be valid if written confirmation by the Schischulen Wurzeralm. In the case of group courses, a contractual relationship is only established with the purchase of the necessary course cards. All of our prices are in Euro and unless otherwise noted, including the legal value added tax. Prices are without guarantee. No liability is accepted for printing errors.
3. Terms of payment
For contracts concluded, the fee shall be paid directly to the Schischul office for the service to be performed, unless otherwise agreed. In the event of a delay in payment by the customer, we are entitled to charge interest on arrears at a rate of 5% per annum, as a result of which claims for compensation for higher interest rates are not impaired.
4. General conditions of participation
The contractual partner shall provide truthful and comprehensive information to Schischulen Wurzeralm regarding his abilities and experiences with the Schilauf, as well as to provide independent equipment for the state of the art of skiing and the external conditions. He also has to elucidate the Schischulen Wurzeralm about his physical abilities, especially his health and possible suffering.
Before the beginning of the lesson, the contractor must independently check the ski equipment (especially ski binding) by a specialist company. The groups are divided into Schikursen by the Schischulen Wurzeralm. Should the rescission of the participant be necessary, the contractor shall comply with this decision. Otherwise Schischulen Wurzeralm is entitled to terminate the contract.
The contractor shall comply with the instructions given by the Schischulen Wurzeralm. The failure of an admonition entitles Schischulen Wurzeralm to rescind the contract. The Schischulen Wurzeralm entitles the Schischulen Wurzeralm to participate in services provided by Schischulen Wurzeralm under alcohol or drug influence. The contractual partner shall not be entitled to a refund of the remuneration paid in the cases described above.
5. Liability provisions
As a matter of principle Schischulen Wurzeralm is only liable for damage directly related to the activities of Schischulen Wurzeralm, which were intentionally or grossly negligently committed. A corresponding liability insurance exists.
The contractual partner must notify any complaints immediately in the office in order to remedy the situation. In the case of negligent non-notification, there is no entitlement to a reduction in the fee. Claims against Schischulen Wurzeralm shall be made in writing and justified within four weeks after the occurrence.
For private courses, a cancellation of the contract is possible no later than 17:00 o’clock the day before without a cancellation fee. If, on the other hand, the cancellation is only made at a later date, Schischulen Wurzeralm is entitled to charge the tariff according to the standard rate to the extent of a full day rate.
With regard to the group courses, a refund of already paid payments is only possible in the case of an accident, on presentation of the original deposit (see back of the course card) and with medical certificate from a resident physician. The amount to be refunded shall be recalculated on the basis of the actual services provided for this period. The total amount will be reduced, but higher daily rates may be charged. There will be no refund for cancellations made during an ongoing service or in the event of non-fulfillment on the agreed date.
If the climatic conditions do not guarantee the performance of the service for safety reasons, Schischulen Wurzeralm reserves the right to postpone or cancel the services.
It is only in the case of cancellation that the Schischulen Wurzeralm is obliged to reimburse the pro rata remuneration. The contractual partner is not entitled to any additional claim.
