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, 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.

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

It was amazing! I had a wonderful experience. I’m so glad that I had this opportunity and that I was able to experience it with great people. During the entire climb I felt safe and secure and always felt that I was in good hands. Never did I have a feeling of uncertainty. Even though the guides had ideas with how they wanted to proceed with our climb/camping, they always included us in the decision process.
