We strive to provide our guests with perfect slope conditions every day. However, when fresh snow falls it is not always possible even with all grooming machines deployed to prepare all the slopes simultaneously. And in some weather and snow conditions, fresh snow does not always bind to the older snow underneath, and the new snow can still shift around and form new drifts and irregularities. Unfortunately, this cannot be prevented with even the best grooming of the slopes.
Excerpt from the General Terms and conditions
Please understand that our office personnel can make no exceptions to the tariffs. The ski passes are not transferable and must be produced on request by our supervisory staff. Retrospective exchange and the extension or alteration of validity terms are not possible. Cards not purchased at the offices and lost cards are stopped by the card readers. Misuse will result in the ski pass being withdrawn! (Attempting to transfer a ski pass to another person constitutes misuse.) We would like to note that photos for control purposes are made at the control points in the ski resort.The right is reserved to make a report to the authorities. The tariff and transport conditions apply. We would point out that under railway liability laws only guests with valid passes enjoy insurance cover. If the transport conditions are breached, ski slope closures are ignored, the skiing bans in forests or FIS rules are violated, exclusion from transport will be the result. In serious cases the ski pass will be withdrawn without compensation and a report to the authorities may be made. The general terms and conditions of Hochzeiger Bergbahnen Pitztal AG apply.
