For more information and advice on what type of course is most suited to you, the exact content of a course, the equipment you need or help in finding accommodation do not hesitate to get in touch. We would rather spend the time giving you all the information you need prior to any booking being made, rather than you arriving expecting something different to what we can provide.
Mountain sports are heavily influenced by the weather and your course structure may be dictated by the current conditions. The decisions made by your instructor will be based on what you have done in the past, what you want to do now, the weather and conditions on the day. Sometimes it is the weather that dictates where you go, other times you have the full choice and you can go anywhere you want.
The course will only be booked on receipt of a fully completed booking form and a deposit of £50 per person. The balance of your course is due four weeks before the start date. Personal accident insurance is recommended and is a free benefit of membership of the MCofS.
If you cancel your course more than four weeks before the start date you will receive no refund of deposit. If you cancel your course less than four weeks before the start date you will receive a refund of 25% of the course fee paid by you less your deposit. We strongly recommend that you obtain suitable cancellation insurance for your course.
By booking a course you are agreeing you are fit enough for the course and will abide by the safety instructions given to you; you recognise that climbing and mountaineering, mountain biking and canyoning are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.
