These conditions of sale are intended to inform the customer about their rights and obligations associated with entering into a contract with Magic ski school, including the organisation and sale of individual and group lessons. These conditions are given to all clients to provide information under section 96 of Decree 94-490 of 15 June 1994. CHAMBERY RCS: 522976422. No. reporting institution, departmental management of the protection of people and social cohesion: ET 73930286


SKI & SNOWBOARD SCHOOL

I – Price
Our prices include all taxes and are calculated in euros at the time of closure of contract. Prices may be changed without prior notice in case of increases imposed by our suppliers or in case of economic crisis. Our services are offered for a predetermined period of time according to the terms of the reservation.

II – Registration – Booking – Modification
The full payment will be taken unless otherwise specified with the client.  Magic reserves the right to offer the reserved spaces for sale to other clients, retaining the full deposit amount. The reservation is deemed definite on reception of the deposit. Should the client fail to comply with the regulation above, he will be considered in breach of contract. There may be additional charges for any changes made to a reservation less than 7 days before the start date.

III – Cancellation
Lessons cancelled within 60 days notice can receive a 100% refund. Lessons cancelled with 30 days notice can receive a 50% refund, 50% of the total will be retained by Magic for administration purposes. Magic reserves the right to retain full payment for cancellations made within 30 days of arrival. Cancellations of in-resort bookings are non-refundable and postponement remains at the discretion of Magic’s management.

IV – Responsibilities
Magic uses a number of external suppliers in particular in conjunction with “all inclusive deals”, ski lift passes, children’s lunch club etc. Magic should not be confused with the aforementioned, whom in each case stands responsible for their own activities under the legislation of the particular enterprise. In this case, Magic cannot be held liable and the client cannot claim any compensation in case of schedule changes due to our partners. Also, any service not used by the client for any reason whatsoever, shall not give rise to a refund. Finally, under no circumstances can Magic be held liable for circumstances arising from natural causes or external influence.

V – Miscellaneous
For any Magic product, the client should present himself on the start date and within the time period specified on confirmation. Unclaimed service due to a late arrival does not qualify for a reimbursement. Any problems, delays or time spent on ski lifts does not justify a reduction in price neither a prolonged lesson, unless the fault is directly due to a voluntary act on Magic’s behalf. Any difficulties/queries which might come of the contract will be handed directly to the Court of Summary Jurisdiction in CHAMBERY (Savoie). Similarly, the “overflow” or “lack” of snow cannot be attributed to Magic ski school. Weather and snow conditions prevailing on the day are not the responsibility of Magic, and the client cannot claim any compensation, rebate and or refund.

VI – Special Conditions
Magic advertises a maximum number per group. Clients are booked into the groups depending on the level stated by them. If the level is not correct then Magic reserves the right to move clients into the correct level of group. On rare occasions during peak week dates this may mean group sizes will be more than the advertised amount. Magic is committed to make every effort to ensure that the number of students is reduced if this is to happen.

A list of reasons that could cause a course to exceed the number:
– Error registering under or over evaluation due to the client.
– Instructor injury or illness resulting in the requirement to move students to another course.
– Desire for a customer to move to a different course other than that of his.
– Instructor obligation to “move” a client into a higher or lower class for technical or security reasons.
– State of fatigue or stress found in a client that requires them to move to a lower level.

In all cases, if the maximum number in a course is exceeded, the client is not liable for any rebates, refunds or compensation from Magic ski school.

VII – Helmets & Protection
There is always a risk involved in any snow activities therefore a helmet is compulsory for children under 13 years old and for snowboarders taking lessons with us. We also highly recommend them for everyone else. We also recommend children’s back protection, wrist protection and impact protective shorts for snowboarders.

VIII – Insurance
All participants who take part in Magic activities are not covered by the company liability insurance. Each customer must insure themselves against any risks that can take place in this type of sport. Personal insurance is available to purchase directly from Magic in resort and online.

IX – Photos & Video
By purchasing and joining Magic ski & snowboard school lessons or activities you agree to the possibility of having photos or videos taken, which may then be used in promotion material. If you wish for your photos or videos not to be used you must specify beforehand.
