The contracting party is responsible for taking out appropriate insurance for accidents and coincidences of any kind that may occur before, during or after participation and undertakes at the same time to indemnify and hold the association completely harmless in this respect. The association cannot be held liable for costs resulting from missing or inadequate insurance.

§ 5 Payment

As soon as the booking has been confirmed by the club, a deposit of € 200,00 has to be paid. The remaining fee is then due at the latest 4 weeks before the start of the service. If the receipt of payment is not complete by then, the club allows itself to withdraw from the contract under the known cancellation conditions.

§ 7 Responsibility

  • a) The club tries to make skiing as safe as possible by means of ski attendants, handicapped specific equipment etc. However, skiing is still a sport with a risk of injury (e.g. falls, other skiers,…). The association assumes no liability whatsoever for accidents and coincidences.
  • b) The contracting party hereby agrees to indemnify and hold the club and the ski attendant harmless in all respects and exempts the club from all liability claims. This includes all direct and indirect damages as well as unlawful claims that the participant, heirs or other third parties could assert due to injuries suffered or in the event of death. Furthermore I release the organizers, coaches and helpers from any liability towards third parties, as far as these third parties suffer damages as a result of a participation in skiing. I am aware that participation in skiing involves risks and that the risk of serious injuries, including fatal accidents and property damage, cannot be ruled out. By paying the deposit or the course fee, the participant finally declares that this waiver, indemnity and commitment declaration has been read carefully and in detail and expressly agrees with its contents.

§ 8 Final clause

The legal relationship between the association and the contractual partner is governed by Austrian law. The place of jurisdiction is Schladming.
By booking or paying the deposit or the course fee the participant finally declares to have read and understood the terms and conditions point by point and to expressly agree with their contents.
