CHAMONIX SKI PASSES TERMS & CONDITIONS – BASIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Chamonix Ski Passes (“the COMPANY”) is a trading name of AD & Co. Limited (UK Company Registration Number: 06218322, VAT no. GB104905669) which acts as an agent for La Compagnie du Mont-Blanc SA (“the ISSUER”). Any contract is made between the person buying the Chamonix ski pass (“the Buyer”) and the Company.
A contract will be entered into on the issuance of an order confirmation by the Company. The contract between the Company and the Buyer is purely to act as an intermediary and to deliver the ski passes to the accommodation of the Buyer free if charge. The contractual relationship regarding the issue and use of the lift passes is between the Buyer and the issuer according to the Terms and Conditions of the Issuer.
The Company undertakes to purchase lift passes on behalf of the Buyer and deliver the ski passes to the Buyer. Neither AD & Co. Limited nor Chamonix Ski Chalets accept any liability whatsoever in respect of the conditions of purchase of ski passes from the Issuer.
The contract between the Company and the Buyer is limited to the purchase and delivery of lift passes only. The Company does not make any warranties as to the use, limitation, cancellation terms or other operating conditions of the lift passes themselves. The Company contracts with the Buyer at the price on the date of purchase and cannot make any refunds or changes should the Issuer adjust prices after you have purchased your passes. The Issuer does not give refunds for lift passes purchased in error nor will the Company.
Chamonix Ski Passes are not transferable, and any refund requests must be made directly to the Issuer. Ski Passes can only be cancelled by taking the Ski Pass to the offices of the Compagnie du Mont Blanc provided that they have been completely unused. Any refunds applicable will be done by the Issuer and not the Company if applicable.
LIFT PASS REFUND GUARANTEE CANCELLATION OPTION
Chamonix lift passes are not transferable and cannot be cancelled once used for any day of validity period of the pass. For peace of mind, Chamonix Ski Passes offers a money back option for any wholly unused lift pass purchase for passes purchased at standard prices. This does not apply to early bird passes.
If you wish to cancel your pass for any reason, we will refund your pass purchase price (excluding the Refund Guarantee fee) if notice in writing is given to the Company not less than 48 hours before the commencement of the first day skiing of the respective pass. The refund will be credited via your payment method or by bank transfer within 10 working days of formal notification to cancel.
When buying your ski passes the Issuer offers an insurance option which covers limited rescue and transfer to a local medical facility associated with winter sports as follows:
- Rescue and evacuation (search and rescue costs)
- Ski pass reimbursement (and ski lessons if unused) & offers additional benefits
This is not a full medical insurance cover so please make sure you travel with adequate medical and travel insurance relevant to you specific needs.

An accident may be very expensive
Mountain rescue services are not free and are charged to the injured party. Egloo Protect is available at the ski lift sales desks of partner resorts, in some French ski schools, and gives you all the insurance coverage and assistance that you will need to practise your sports with total peace of mind.
NB. This insurance directly covers all search and rescue fees and repatriation for medical treatment. Depending on the insurance options that you have selected, your insurance will cover cancellation (subscription in advance of the trip) and you will be reimbursed for the price of your ski lift pass or your Nordic access pass and any French ski school (ESF) lessons that you have booked and paid for in advance.
The insurance will also cover any case where your trip is cut short due to an accident, illness (with hospitalisation) or early return, and you will be reimbursed for the price of your ski lift pass or your Nordic access pass and any ski lessons on a prorata temporis basis in relation to the days missed.

NO QUEUING | FREE DELIVERY | DISCOUNTS | CANCELLATION & REFUND OPTION | MOUNTAIN RESCUE
Buying your Chamonix lift passes in advance of your holiday completely makes sense. Firstly, you don't have worry about queuing to buy them over the counter or figuring out how much cash you need for your holiday, but also you will have the passes delivered to you in time for your first day of skiing in Chamonix to where you are staying.
We also drop off ski maps and Chamonix local guides to ensure you have all the information you need to ski in Chamonix and the connected ski areas associated to the Chamonix lift pass type you wish to use.
We give you the best prices we can get given the complicated schedule that the lift company publishes and changes. We cannot though change the prices once you have purchased your Chamonix pass with us. We also have a lot of local knowledge about the ski areas and the associated safe places to ski.
We advise you book a guide for any off piste skiing and always have a full avalanche pack (transceiver, shovel, probe & airbag) as well as the appropriate training to reduce the risks typical of high mountain off piste terrain.
For the most extensive skiing during your holiday you might want to buy the Mont Blanc Unlimited Chamonix Lift Pass. This pass gives access to the ski areas of Courmayeur, Verbier (one half price day pass per week – conditions apply), Megève and St Gervais/Les Contamines. This lift pass gives you more than enough skiing and variety for any level of skier. Even for the beginner skier it is a good idea to take the excursion to see the view from the L'Aiguille du Midi cable car on a sunny day and even a day trip to the other resorts.
Chamonix Lift Passes do offer the different options though particularly if you are wishing to minimise the costs of your holiday! Either way do give us a call to discuss your requirements, experience and objectives for your holiday in Chamonix. As they say around here, "have lift pass, will travel..."
