1. Certain guided activities require a certain amount of previous experience and fitness.
It is important that any queries by the client are discussed with Andy Teasdale Guiding prior to booking. If a client turns up without the required amount of previous experience and becomes a hindrance or danger to themselves or other course members then Andy Teasdale Guiding will ask that individual to leave the course or tour. No refund will be given in this instance.
2. Every effort will be made to ensure planned itineraries are fulfilled. Weather, mountain conditions and other circumstances may cause them to be changed at short notice.
3. Climbing, mountaineering and skiing are dangerous activities with risk of personal injury or death. You must accept these risks. Andy Teasdale Guiding will always ensure a high professional standard of safety and instruction but cannot accept responsibility for personal illness, injury or death during mountain based activities.
4. INSURANCE AGAIN. Your insurance policies must cover cancellation and curtailment. On alpine mountaineering courses you must have cover for the use of mountain guides, roped climbing and travel in glaciated areas. For ski courses it needs to cover you for guided off piste skiing and ski mountaineering/ touring.
