ARTICLE 1 - COPYRIGHT

This entire website is governed by French and international legislation on copyright and intellectual property. Any representation, reproduction, modification, commercial use, as well as any transfer towards another site are prohibited, except with authorization to be requested by mail to the address indicated above. Only a strictly personal use is authorized.

 

ARTICLE 2 - SERVICES 

All the instructors of COURCHEVEL SKI CLUB have followed a training validated by the French State and are holders of a valid authorization to teach skiing and its related disciplines. The teaching will be carried out according to the French Skiing Method, codified in the Memento of French Skiing Teaching (published by the French Ministry of Sports), and recognized on a national and international level. This teaching can take place in any environment and on any suitable snow to allow the acquisition of the skills mentioned in the Memento. 

The services are provided individually or in groups. The good progress of the courses supposes a homogeneity of the skiers' level. As it is impossible for COURCHEVEL SKI CLUB's instructors to check the level of each student prior to enrolment, the student is responsible for choosing the technical level he or she has selected according to the grid established by COURCHEVEL SKI CLUB. 

Consequently, COURCHEVEL SKI CLUB reserves the right to reincorporate a skier whose level does not correspond to his or her declaration into a group better suited to his or her level, subject to the capacities of the other groups. The skier will not be able to claim any reimbursement or compensation for this fact due to his declaration alone.            

 

ARTICLE 3 - RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INSTRUCTORS

Learning to ski takes place in a specific environment with a random character. The practice of skiing therefore requires the student to personally take care of his or her own safety and that of third parties. The responsibility of the instructor is limited to an obligation of means. It is up to the student to respect the instructions of the instructor. 

The student is solely responsible for his/her own equipment.

COURCHEVEL SKI CLUB is not responsible for accidents caused by skiers participating in the course.         

 

ARTICLE 4 - INSURANCE 

The service provider shall take out Professional Civil Liability insurance covering the instructors in the exercise of their duties against damage to a third party as well as the pupils during the time they are under the authority of COURCHEVEL SKI CLUB and the instructor. 

The client and/or student is solely responsible for his or her equipment. The instructors shall not be held responsible for any damage caused by the equipment or in the event of theft or damage to the equipment.
