GENERAL COMMERCIAL CONDITIONS

Responsability

VALLE DE LAS LEÑAS S.A., the operator, (hereinafter the Organizer) states that it is acting as an independent intermediary between passengers and various service providers, so it shall have no liability for deficiencies in the provision of such that might occur. Contracts of carriage of passengers by airlines and/or land transport companies will be exclusively between the providers of such services and passengers.

Air or land transport companies will be only responsible for acts, omissions, and/or events that occur during the time passengers are in their units. Otherwise, such providers do not have any kind of liability whatsoever.

In particular, the Organizer is not liable for:

(A) any personal, moral or material harm, damage, loss or injury, caused directly, indirectly and/or consequently by the passenger himself and/or his companion and/or third parties due to the activity carried out at the ski station;

(B) any damage, theft and/or robbery that any passenger and/or his companion and/or third parties could suffer and/or the property of any of these linked to the activity carried out in the ski station;

(C) communications and power supply equipment failures or technical malfunctions, human errors or deliberate acts of third parties that could disrupt, suspend or interrupt the ordinary course of business at the ski station;

(D) mechanical failures and/or technical malfunctions and/or human error or deliberate acts of third parties that could disrupt, suspend or interrupt transfers and/or the realization of everything needed in the ordinary course of business at the ski station.

Late Payment

In the event that the passenger is in arrears regarding fees or amounts agreed, after ten (10) days from the date set for these purposes; the Organizer, at its own discretion, shall choose between the following options

  1. Canceling the tour and/or package tour, and the passenger is not entitled to claim any refund whatsoever.
  2. Charging punitive interest up to 0.5% daily of the balance due.

Acts of God/Force Majeure.

The operator reserves the right to modify hours and/or days of departure and/or return if necessary to guarantee the correct operation of the tour, or if acts of god or force majeure circumstances forced them to do so. If the trip should be shortened or prolonged for acts of god or force majeure not attributable to the organizers, costs which are caused by such situations will be at the sole cost and expense of the passengers.

In the event that, with a minimum of forty-eight (48) hour notice before each departure, the Organizer considers that snowy weather conditions are not guaranteed (lack of snow) for the normal practice of activities in the ski station, or that minimum safety conditions are not guaranteed on the way to such destination, departure might be canceled.

If this occurred, Organizer shall credit—for passengers who are not in arrears— the nominal amount paid for contracted services as credit for future departures during the current winter season (subject to availability) or the same season of the following year, until such amount has been used.

Should any circumstances not foreseen therein and not attributable to the Organizer occur, this may modify them and/or suspend or cancel the operation, always in compliance with applicable regulations.

Refunds

Neither the operator nor the Organizer will make partial refunds of the services included in the tour waived by passengers voluntarily. Cancellations, changes of dates or names will result in the following penalties:
