Payment is due within one week of being added to the registered participant list.
There are NO REFUNDS for participant cancellations from the Introduction to Backcountry Skiing & Splitboarding course.
Should you have to cancel your registration after being accepted and paying the course fee, it will be your responsibility to try and find someone to take your spot, contacting waitlisted participants and arranging payment between for the course fee reimbursement between yourselves. However, should this not be possible, please be advised that no refund will be provided for participant cancellation once the course fee is paid.
The only circumstances under which refunds will be provided are where the course needs to be cancelled for all participants (ie: changes in provincial health guidelines prevent the ability for us to conduct the course safely).
Once accepted into the course, for the payment, e- Transfer to treasurer@ accvancouver.ca
Please include a note with the payment referencing to this event (" IBS 2021") and use "V0N1G0" as the password for e- Transfer.
