It is important to understand that we run only a limited number of winter snow courses and climbing expeditions each year, with a limited number of places – we often have to turn people away as courses book out quickly, and filling a cancelled place at short notice is not always possible. 30 – 14 days notice, course fees can be refunded less $200 deposit. 14 days or less you forfeit your full payment. If we can fill your place within this timeframe, we may refund your course fee less the $200 booking deposit. We strongly advise that participants obtain insurance to cover any fees that may be incurred due to unforeseen cancellations. In the unlikely event that ASM must cancel your course due to insufficient numbers, every effort will be made to offer you alternative dates for this course. If alternative dates are not suitable, a full refund of your course fee can be given. Our programs still run in most weather conditions. Weather in the mountains can be very different to that in Sydney, and can even vary from area to area within the Blue Mountains. Your booked activity will run unless you are informed otherwise. We may be able to offer you an alternative activity/trip if weather affects your activity. However, if we need to cancel your scheduled activity/course we will make every effort to contact you. Clients that make their own decision to not attend a trip based on weather conditions, where the course or activity is not cancelled by ASM, will forfeit their full course/activity fee. Only when ASM must cancel a course or activity due to adverse weather conditions will refunds be given.
