In cooperation with Norwegian Resorts and Mountain Destinations.
12.1. We want all our ski guests to wear helmets, show consideration for other skiers and snowboarders and follow the rules for skiers. It should be safe to ski with us, and then we all have a responsibility for our own skiing.
12.2. Liability to avoid harm: You must act in such a way that you do not harm yourself or others.1
2.3. Adjust your speed to the conditions: You must ski in a controlled manner, adjust your speed and skiing manner according to skill, terrain, skiing conditions and traffic in the facility.
12.4. Duty to give way: If you come from behind (from above), you are responsible for avoiding a collision.

Alpine skiing is associated with a certain danger, therefore, show caution. Drugs and skiing do not go together. Violation of the skiing rules may result in expulsion from the facility and destruction of lift tickets without refund.
13. Break in services
13.1. In the event of a break in services – i.e. in the event of a lift stop and/or when more than 50% of the total trail offer at the time of purchase cannot be used – the cardholder is entitled to a proportionate refund for the time the lift pass cannot be used. The stoppage must be of at least 30 minutes duration and the sum of the stoppages must amount to more than 1/3 of the lift pass's validity period. No refund will be given when purchasing day passes, half-day passes or hourly passes.
13.2. Business interruptions that are beyond the control of operations management (force majeure): In the event of a stoppage that is beyond the control of the ski resort, the reimbursement shall correspond to 50% of the proportionate reimbursement to which the cardholder is entitled under the preceding paragraph. This applies in the event of operational interruptions as a result of, for example, weather and wind conditions, landslides, lightning strikes, floods, fires, power outages, pandemics, strikes, etc. and which constitute conditions that the facility could not reasonably expect to take into account at the time of purchase. It is up to the facility to document that the stoppage is due to such conditions and that the facility has not had the opportunity to avoid or overcome the consequences of these.
Based on the above provision, it must be clear that the cardholder is not entitled to the full purchase price, only a proportionate refund for the time the season pass cannot be used. The maximum amount that can be refunded in the event of a snow shortage is 50% of the lift pass purchase price. This assumes that the facility is unable to open for the season. On the other hand, if the facility stays open more than 1/3 of the season, the cardholder is not entitled to a refund.
In other words, it is for closed days beyond 1/3 of the season's total number of ski days that the cardholder can claim a refund. The refund shall be 50% of the proportionate share of the time the lift pass cannot be used. This is a calculation where the value of the lift pass must be divided by the number of days in the season. This "day rate" is decisive for the size of the reimbursement claim.
It is in the nature of the case that any reimbursement claim cannot be settled until after the season has ended. Accordingly, until the end of the season, the owner of the facility may reject any reimbursement claims. Any claims for reimbursement shall be addressed to the owner of the facility after this time.
