School 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.

Refund Policy

  • Full refunds will be provided for cancellations made 120-days prior to the course start date.
  • 50% refunds will be provided for cancellations made 90-119 days prior to the course start date.
  • No refunds will be provided for cancellations made 89-days prior to the course start date.
  • All cancellation/refund requests must be made via email to our office within the deadlines stated above.
  • If Alpine Ascents cancels or reschedules a program, all fees are refundable and/or transferable.

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.

In many situations, trip insurance is the only way to receive reimbursement if you need to cancel your trip when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.

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

The expedition was awesome. We were successful, the weather was awesome, and everything went smoothly. We were the best team on the mountain
