Baker Climb Cancellation/Refund Policy

Note: Alpine Ascents International highly recommends trip cancellation insurance for all programs. Due to the nature and heavy costs of government and operator permits, Alpine Ascents International must adhere to a stringent refund policy.

  • Full refunds, less the nonrefundable registration fee, will be provided for cancellations made 120-days prior to the climb start date.
  • 50% refunds, less the nonrefundable registration fee, will be provided for cancellations made 90-119 days prior to the climb start date.
  • No refunds will be provided for cancellations made 89-days prior to the climb start date.
  • Alpine Ascents International will attempt to accommodate changes and cancellations when necessary, waiving certain fees when feasible.
  • All cancellation/refund requests must be made in writing and be received in our office within the deadlines stated above.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, including trip interruption or postponement, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

Trip cancellation insurance allows you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents, or when extreme circumstances prevent trip services from being provided.

Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.

Absolutely! This was a well balanced team. I learned a lot and, as always, had a fantastic time. They struck a good balance with a relatively experienced team of climbers. Yes they did. Craig did a great job (well, everyone really) overall for the climb. I have climber several times with Devin and he also provided great leadership especially for the team that did the rock climb on the top.
