Part 1: Booking Conditions
Mountain travel is not without certain risks and hazards. All program participants will be required to read and sign a waiver
The mountain weather, snow conditions, and avalanche hazard are beyond our control. If conditions do not allow the original program, we will make every effort to find a safe, suitable alternative. As such, we reserve the right to cancel all or a portion of a program, without penalty to HBS. We cannot be responsible for clients’ expenses as a result of this. Trip cancellation insurance is strongly recommended.
Backcountry Emergency Evacuation
Program participants will be required to pay for any costs associated with medical evacuations from the field, in the unlikely event of injury or illness. Specialty adventure travel insurance is strongly recommended.
The participation of any person on any program is continually subject to the discretion of the guides and HBS. If a person is asked to leave a program for any reason, there will be no refund.
All program participants will need to provide the required gear.(See course information package) If you do not have the required gear, please rent or borrow gear for the program. Local Supply Co in Smithers can assist you.
Hyland Backcountry Services Ltd. strongly recommends our guests and clients obtain adequate adventure tourism insurances for their trips or courses. The following types of insurance should be considered
- Emergency Evacuation/Medical Insurance
- Trip Cancellation or Interruption Insurance
These policies will protect you in the event of cancellation or sickness/injury.
