Alpin-Experts, 6373 Jochberg, Sonnenfeldweg 1
Unless otherwise explicitly agreed and communicated, the following General Terms & Conditions apply to all business conducted between Alpin-Experts and its customers. The business of the company consists of the operation of a snow sport school (ski school). In particular, this covers lessons in theory and the practical execution of different types of snow sports (with no guarantee of a certain degree of success), as well as leading and accompanying ski & snowboard tours.
2. Conclusion of a contract regulating the requested service and price
Reservations for private lessons can be made via telephone or e-mail. Not until the request has been confirmed in writing by Alpin-Experts can it be viewed as firmly booked. The offers of Alpin-Experts are non-binding (subject to alteration).
Our written confirmation alone is indicative of a firm booking for defined services. Verbal arrangements and those made by telephone are valid only if confirmed explicitly in writing by Aplin-Experts.
In the case of group courses, the contractual relationship shall not be established until all required tickets have been acquired. All listed prices are in the euro currency and, unless otherwise noted, include the statutory value contributions and taxes. Price lists are not guaranteed. Alpin-Experts is not liable for any printing error.
3. Terms of Payment
If no other arrangements have been agreed to in writing, a down payment of EUR 300.00 is to be paid with no delay upon receipt of the written statement of confirmation.

The payment of this sum is to reach the account of Alpin-Experts no later than three banking business days prior to the commencement of services, e.g. start of lessons. The final invoicing for private snow sport training takes place once the services have been rendered.
For those contracts concluded on site, the payment of the contracted services is to be made either directly to the ski instructor or in the office of the ski school. In the case of payment default by the customer, we are entitled to offset interest payable on arrears to the sum of 5% annually; hereby claims for the reimbursement of higher interest is not impaired.
