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.

Each deposit, regardless of amount, includes a $300.00 non-refundable registration fee.

  • Full refunds, less the nonrefundable registration fee, will be provided for cancellations made 120-days prior to the course start date.
  • 50% refunds, less the nonrefundable registration fee, 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 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.

Staff at the office were personable and helpful, and from what I noticed it was a pretty efficient operation. I love the website with the descriptions about each trip or course – everything I want to know is right there! And the gear list and index is fantastic, it really helped me know the exact features I needed to look for and the purchases I needed to make.
