For all persons who have taken out ESS COURS PROTECT insurance, ESS Grimentz-Zinal undertakes to reschedule and/or replace lessons missed during the customer's stay, subject to availability, and, where applicable, to reimburse missed lessons in accordance with the general terms and conditions below and the general terms and conditions governing all our services.

The customer is free to take out this insurance for all the services offered by the Grimentz-Zinal Swiss Ski School. This additional insurance is offered when you book online and will appear on your booking confirmation as OPTION (1).

When you book at our offices in Grimentz and Zinal, our staff will ask you whether or not you wish to take out this insurance. This insurance is not retroactive.

If the ski area is closed for all or part of the day due to a storm or other extraordinary event, all lessons will be cancelled for safety reasons, with no possibility of refund. If you take out insurance, we can either reschedule or refund the course if a replacement cannot be found.

ESS Grimentz-Zinal accepts no responsibility for any incidents or accidents that may occur during lessons. As a student and client of our school, you accept the risks involved in snow sports. Participants are responsible for their own accident and liability insurance.

The general conditions below govern the ESS COURS PROTECT complementary insurance.
