Between June and September 2020, the ski resorts in the southern hemisphere will be fully operational and most of the northern hemisphere resorts are open for a Summer season with chairlifts running for mountain bikers and glacier skiers! As such, SnowSkool is planning for another snowy season in the mountains of Canada & France starting in December 2020
All positive news of course but we want you to know that we are in regular contact with all suppliers in all resorts to ensure that plans are being put in place to ensure your safety. For example, we know that, for the Summer season, Meribel Alpina (who operate the lifts in Meribel) will be trialling a number of initiatives/ procedures that they can utilise on a wider scale for the Winter season. And our accommodation partners are part of a wider conversation with other chalet operators to share knowledge on how catered chalets can be best managed next season. Over in Western Canada - where case numbers are measured in the hundreds, not hundreds of thousands - we are regularly in consultation with Alberta Health Services, the ski resorts and accommodation providers about the measures we will need to take to keep you and the local community safe & well.
It is a constantly-evolving situation and we will update you when we have clarity but, for now, our promise to you is that we will do whatever is required ... however inconvenient ... to ensure that you have a fantastic time in Banff, Big White or Méribel and a season that is as safe and comfortable as possible.
As much as we plan for the season ahead, there are so many factors that are unfortunately out of our hands and so we want you to know that if your SnowSkool course can not go ahead, you will get a full refund of all monies paid to SnowSkool. And to ensure that you know this is more than just an honourable intention, we are organising and paying for an individual financial failure insurance policy to cover the entire cost of your booking
- Full refund of all monies paid to SnowSkool
- For bookings with flights, we offer financial failure insurance through ATOL
- For bookings without flights, we offer financial failure insurance through AVS
