Our responsibility to you
- We accept full responsibility for all arrangements for your holiday which are totally within our control. Sempre Ski holidays begin and end with your arrival and departure from the chalet. We are not responsible for your travel to and from this point or any expenses incurred. We cannot accept any responsibility on behalf of any persons not employed directly by Sempre Ski over whom we have no control but who are involved in the provision of your holiday. If you have any complaint during your holiday you must inform us immediately in order to allow us the opportunity to rectify the matter. If you feel the issue remains unresolved then you must submit a written complaint to us whilst still in resort. If you remain dissatisfied upon return to the UK you must write to us within 28 days citing your booking reference and full details of the complaint. We regret that we cannot accept liability in relation to any complaint which is not in accordance with this procedure.
Ski Hosting Service
- Ski hosting is always undertaken on a purely social level and we reserve the right to withdraw this service at any time. Ski hosts are not instructors. Guests are responsible for assessing their own capabilities and participate at their own risk. All ski hosting is restricted to runs that are open and within the secure area of the resort. It is the responsibility of all guests to ensure they are aware of the standard of the proposed route. This service is dependent on safety, numbers and conditions. The ski host’s decision is final. We accept no responsibility for accidents, injuries or expenses incurred whilst skiing with our ski host. Ski hosting is free of charge and subject to local regulations.
- The chalet is cleaned on Sundays so access to rooms is unlikely to be available until after 3 p.m. You will be expected to vacate your rooms by 10 a.m. on the morning of your departure.
- Please respect our accommodation and leave it in the good condition that you find it. When you book with us the party leader is accepting responsibility for any damage or loss caused by any member of the party. We reserve the right to recover the cost of any damage, loss or additional cleaning due to inappropriate behaviour or misuse. This includes smoking which is not permitted inside our chalet. Proper payment for any such damage or loss must be made at the time directly to Sempre Ski.
- The party leader shall be liable in the first instance for any claims against the party.
- We insist that you respect other guests, staff and neighbours and behave at all times in a manner which is neither offensive, threatening nor insulting. Sempre Ski reserve the right to terminate the holiday of anyone in breach of this undertaking with immediate effect will have no further contractual or other obligation to that guest. No refunds will be made and we will not pay any expenses incurred as a result of the termination.
- We reserve the right to refuse alcohol to anyone at any time.
