General terms of contract
SHUTDOWN OF OPERATIONS, MALFUNCTIONS AND REDUCED SERVICE:
Non-use of the ski pass due to poor weather conditions, avalanche danger, systems failure, closure of slopes, unexpected departures etc. are not valid claims for refunds or extensions. Using the ski slopes is done at one’s own risk. Subject to changes in operating hours due to snow conditions.
DISCOUNTED PASSES: Photo ID is required for the purchase of discounted passes (children, youths, seniors and disabled) without exception. There are no further discounts on already discounted passes.
KEYCARDS: Our ski area is fully equipped with a non-contact keycard system. This means that your ski pass will be issued in the form of an electronic keycard. € 2.00 deposit is charged for each card, which will be refunded upon return of the undamaged keycard at all ticket counters of the Kaunertaler Gletscherbahnen ski lifts or tourist office, swimming pool, sports shop or hotel reception. Lift tickets are verified electronically at all lifts and facilities in the resort. Non-skiers are issued magnetic tickets for single trips, which must be inserted into the appropriate card readers.
MISSUSE, REPLACEMENT AND EXTENSIONS: Ticket inspections are carried out regularly and at random. The ski pass must be shown to lift personnel upon request. Ski passes are issued to individuals and are non-transferable. Any missuse will result in immediate confiscation and a fine equal to a triple daily tariff. We reserve the right to press charges. The subsequent exchange for another ski pass and extension or postponement of the validity period is not possible.

REFUNDS IN THE EVENT OF SKIING ACCIDENTS: Refunds for skiing accidents are only possible if the ski pass is valid for at least two further days. This does not apply to accompanying persons.

A medical certificate from a local doctor must be obtained and presented before any refund can be given.
SKIPASSPARTNERSHIPS: The individual services to which the pass entitles you are provided by independent operators. The company selling the pass acts solely as a representative of the other operators.
