MINIMUM ENROLLMENT ON GROUP COURSES

The cutoff date for minimum enrollment will be 7 days prior to the start of the trip. If minimum enrollment numbers are not met, one of four options will occur. It is up to the participant to decide which they would prefer.

1) The Climbing School will attempt to pair participants from like trips to find common dates that work for both parties so that minimum enrollment can be met.

2) The trip will still run and participants will be offered modified (shortened) itinerary.

3) The trip will still run as planned and participants will be charged private rates.

4) Participants will be offered a full refund or credit towards another trip, including deposit


Note that if a participant is charged private rates and another participant signs up last minute so that minimum enrollment is met, the participant will be refunded the difference between private and group rates.
