ARTICLE I : SERVICES

All the instructors of the ESF Les 2 Alpes have followed a State-approved training course and their teaching methods are recognised nationally and internationally. The services shall be provided for individuals or for groups. For lessons to be properly conducted in a group, the skiers should have the same level.

In view of the material impossibility for the instructors of the ESF Les 2 Alpes to verify the level of each pupil prior to registration, the pupil shall be responsible for his choice of technical level according to the scale drawn up by the ESF Les 2 Alpes.

Accordingly, the ESF Les 2 Alpes reserves the right to reintegrate a skier into a group that is better adapted to his level if such level does not correspond to his declaration, and subject to the capacities of the other groups. The skier shall not be able to claim any reimbursement or other compensation as a result thereof due to his (or her) declaration.

Skiing lessons are organized in a specific environment of an unpredictable nature. For such purpose the pupil shall be personally required to take care of his own safety and that of others. The liability of the instructor shall be limited to a duty to exercise skill and care. The pupil shall ensure that he complies with the instructions of the instructor.

The ESF Les 2 Alpes shall not be liable for any accidents caused by skiers who take part in the lessons. The ESF Les 2 Alpes reserves the right to cancel any services sold (in the precise cases enumerated under article 3 hereof) and under such conditions to reimburse the customer without any right for the latter to claim additional compensation.
