Courses & Activities

  1. Chamonix Experience SARL and our mountain guides reserve the right to change the venue, mountain objective, route or activity booked should we believe that continuing with the proposed itinerary would place you, any group member and/or guides at undue risk due to unfavourable weather, conditions and/or client ability. This applies to all courses and activities.

  3. Private guiding will run regardless of weather conditions. It is up the guides to make a suitable programme in order to optimise time.

  4. Courses and training days will run regardless of weather conditions. It is up to the guides to make a suitable programme in order to optimise time.

There will be no refund.
