Therefore, only the respective partner is liable for compensation claims and obliged to provide the single service he offers.
  • By purchasing a ski pass with name, the skipass holder accepts the automatic registration of personal data. Furthermore, these data will be used for control purposes in order to avoid the misuse of personal skipasses.

  • Only days not used will be refunded. Only multi-day ski passes can be refunded. Skipass days following the day of the accident will be refunded but not the day of the accident itself.

In case of a refund the rescue, service and first aid costs arising from the slope rescue will be deducted immediately according to the invoice/official certificate issued by the local slope rescue team.
  • NO refund in case of illness, inclement weather conditions, avalanche hazard, unforeseen departure, dis-continued lift operation, closed ski runs or ski lifts!
  • Season ticket:  In the event of a complete temporary shutdown of operations (“Be-triebssperre”) (for which the Liftgesellschaften Gurgl is not responsible) during the announced operat-ing hours, which lasts for more than 7 consecutive days, the visitor is entitled to an aliquot refund, provided that the operational restriction does not originate from the sphere of the visitor. This will be calculated as follows:
  • The fee paid by the visitor is distributed evenly over the entire validity peri-od of the lift ticket (e.g. validity period of a season ticket). In the event of a tem-porary shutdown of operations pursuant to point mentioned above, the user will receive a corre-sponding (aliquot) refund for each day affected thereof. This has to be applied for with the Liftgesellschaften Gurgl after the end of the period of validity.
  • In accordance with the "fair use" principle, no refunds will be made in re-spect of season tickets if this would lead to an improper advantage in respect of a specific visitor: If the visitor has already made use of at least 20 first-time admis-sions (with the Liftgesellschaften Gurgl or other ski area operators) during the respective period of va-lidity, a temporary shutdown of operations pursuant to point mentioned above, will not result in a further refund.
