Phone: 0043 664 20 29 793
Direct mail: Angerer alpin-+Skischule GmbH, Bergbahnstraße 42, 5632 Dorfgastein, Austria
In case of cancellation by the Customer, the Angerer Ski School is entitled to charge the following cancellation fees:
Up to 14 days prior to the beginning of the booked service: none
As of 14 days prior to the beginning of the booked service: 30% of the stipulated total price (also applies to the non-utilization of the booked service)
The above-mentioned deadlines also apply in case of partial cancellation of the booked service. The date on which the Angerer Ski School receives the notification of cancellation shall be decisive.
Should no cancellation be carried out three days prior to the starting date, 100% of the total booking price shall be charged. (This also applies to non-utilization of the booked service.)
For booked group courses: in the event of illness or accident, which makes it impossible to participate in the booked service, a reimbursement of the paid fee is also possible within the last 14 days before the start of the booked service, if the Customer of the Angerer Ski School provides a medical certificate. Should the journey to Gastein have already taken place, a medical certificate from a local physician must be submitted.
If a portion of the booked service has already been used, the fees shall be recalculated for the service already used in accordance with the course fees. The portion of the amount already paid,
which exceeds the fee calculated in this way, shall be reimbursed.
In the case of legitimate cancellation, the refund shall be issued within 14 days of the date of cancellation.
9. Cancellation by the Angerer Ski School
Should the weather conditions prevent the booked service from being carried out due to safety reasons, the Angerer Ski School is entitled to postpone or cancel the booked service. In the case of the cancellation of the booked service, the Angerer Ski School is obliged to reimburse the Customer with the fee paid for the booked service within 14 days from the date of the cancellation.
Course participants are expressly advised that according to the Salzburger Landessportgesetz 1988 (Salzburg Regional Sports Law), LGBI No. 98/1987, children and adolescents up to the age of 15 years
are required to use a ski and snowboard helmet which meets the requirements of the ÖNORMEN 1077: 2007 provision for skiing and snowboarding. The course participants must also know the content and the application of the current Federation Internationale de Skis slope rules and adhere to them.
11. Accident insurance
The Customer acknowledges that going skiing is associated with numerous dangers and, in particular, in the case of skiing on open terrain, there is the possibility that the Customer could find themselves in an emergency situation on the mountain. The Customer further notes that rescuing a person who finds themselves in an emergency situation on the mountain is associated with high costs, especially in the case of air and mountain rescue. The Customer is advised to take out appropriate insurance for leisure activities (in particular to compensate for mountain rescue and air rescue costs), especially since the Angerer Ski School is not liable for such rescue and flight rescue costs, unless the Angerer Ski School caused these rescue and/or flight rescue costs through intentional or grossly negligent conduct on behalf of the Angerer Ski School, their legal representatives or vicarious agents.
12. Skill groups
The services provided by the Angerer Ski School are divided into the following skill groups:
Adult group (18 years and up): Trips on slopes, ski routes, variety runs, ski tours, rides on open terrain
Youth groups (13 to 18 years): Trips on slopes, ski routes and rides on open terrain
Children’s groups (up to 12 years): Skiing/snowboarding on slopes and ski runs only
The Angerer Ski School is responsible for assigning ski lesson groups. After a lesson has begun, the Customer must also accept changes to the group assignment, in particular being assigned by the Angerer Ski to a less advanced skill group. If the number of group participants is reduced to less than four persons in a group lesson, the Angerer Ski School retains the right to combine groups or to reduce the number of instruction hours accordingly.
The Customer must abide by the instructions given by the Angerer Ski School, their legal representatives and vicarious agents. Disregard for a warning entitles the Angerer Ski School to immediately terminate the contract. The participation in services offered by the Angerer Ski School of Customers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs also entitles the Angerer Ski School to immediately terminate the contract.
In the aforementioned cases, the Customer is not entitled to a refund of the paid fee.
The Angerer Ski School is obligated to guarantee the Customer that the service booked meets the conditions of the contract, however without guaranteeing the Customer any results in any form.
Except for in the case of personal injury, the Angerer Ski School is not liable for damages insofar that the damage was not caused by an intentional or grossly negligent conduct of the Angerer Ski School, its legal representatives or vicarious agents, and the harmful behavior does not affect the principal obligations agreed upon in the contract with the Angerer Ski School. This exclusion of liability does not apply in the case of atypical or unforeseeable damages which the Customer could not foresee.
The Angerer Ski School, in particular, does not accept liability for damages, which the Customer inflicts upon him/herself or other persons while executing the agreed service.
The Angerer Ski School only carries out its services outside, on ski slopes or on open terrain, sometimes under difficult to very difficult conditions. Unfavorable weather conditions such as rain, snow or fog can make the conditions even more difficult.
The Customer must truthfully and comprehensively inform the Angerer Ski School about his/her abilities and experiences in relation to snow sports. The Customer must also inform the Angerer Ski School about his/her physical abilities, in particular his/her state of health and any illnesses.
The services provided by the Angerer Ski School can be very demanding on the Customer’s equipment as well as on their physical fitness and skiing technique. Each Customer is therefore requested to carry out the booked services using sporting equipment and mandatory safety equipment which is in perfect condition as well as to realistically assess his/her own abilities.
The Customer is advised that if he/she is not wearing a helmet in case of injury this can constitute contributory negligence on his/her part. As a result, the Customer is advised to wear a helmet as well as the other safety equipment recommended for carrying out the booked activity (for example, avalanche beacon in open terrain).
The contractual partner must make any complaints and grievances immediately with the respective office of the ski and snowboard school in the Salzburg region in order for them to be quickly remedied
so that the service can continue to be carried out. Should the contractual partner not exercise his/her right to make a complaint immediately, or in any case not by the time the service has been fully completed, then any claims for reduction of the fee cannot be considered. Any other claims against the ski and snowboard schools in the Salzburg region must be made in writing and justified at the latest four weeks after the grounds for the claim arises or obtaining knowledge thereof.
16. Place of performance
The headquarters of the Angerer Alpin-+Skischule GmbH is the place of performance for deliveries, services and payments.
17. Governing law
As agreed, Austrian law shall apply exclusively, with the exception of the relevant provisions on the Conflict of Laws.
The court of jurisdiction is exclusively the District Court of St. Johann im Pongau, Austria.
