How to Book:
After contacting me (please use the form below, or call/skype me) to discuss your plans.
A completed booking form must be filled in by each person attending the course. We can then make payment arrangements.
If you re booking a course run by the International School of Mountaineering (ISM) then payment will be arranged through ISM.
I can accept payments by bank transfer or Revolut.
Sorry I don’t accept credit cards but do accept Revolut which is a useful multi currency card.
An invoice will be sent once a booking form is completed.
A deposit (20% of full guiding fees) is needed to confirm your time with us followed by full payment as per booking conditions below.
The daily guiding rate is SFr550 a day plus any expenses (hut/hotel half pension and travel) if working away from home (Leysin).
For multi day ski courses (hut to hut) or ice climbing courses (hotel based) there is a sliding scale per participant depending on the number of participant.
one participant: SFr 550 a day/person
two participants: SFr 300 a day/person
three participants: SFr 240 a day/person
four participants: SFr 180 a day/person
five participants:SFr150 a day/person
six participant: Sfr125 a day/person
The maximum number for ice climbing is two and for skiing six
The balance is due 6 weeks prior to the weeks guiding.
Should you wish to cancel the following conditions apply:
Cancelling more than 6 weeks means loss of deposit.
Cancelling between 6 to 4 weeks means loss of 50% of the guiding fee. Cancelling less than 4 weeks means loss of full course fee.
Insurance against rescue and medical costs is essential. A simple twisted knee injury could need an expensive helicopter evacuation.
Cancellation insurance in case your situation changes and you are no longer to attend is well worth the extra cost.
If you are UK resident then the EHIC form also can help with hospital charges.
