article 1 - SERVICES

All of the ESF Flaine instructors at Flaine have undertaken statte-accredited training and their teaching methods are recognised both nationally and internationally.

Our services are provided for both individuals and for groups. in order for the lessons to be successful, the competence level of all of the skiers participating in them will need to be of the same standard. Given that it would be impossible from a pratical point a of view for the ESF Flaine instructors at Flaine to assess the standard of each pupil prior to registration, the latter will be solely responsible for the technical choice that he has selected in accordance with the table provided by the ESF at Flaine.

Accordingly, the ESF at Flaaine retains the right to move the skier from one groupto another group which is more suitable for his standard if his said standard does not reflect that previously stated by him to be correct, but, this can only occur when and if the other groups have capacity to accommodate him. In this respect, the skier in question will not be able to claim either any reimbursement or any other type of compensation as regards his statement.

Learning to ski will take place in a specific but random environment. Accordingly, the pupil will be personally liable for his own safety and also for that of any third parties. The instructor's liability will be limited to facilitating skiing lessons. it is the reponsibility of the pupil to follow the instructor's instructions. the pupil will be solely liable for his own equipment.

The ESF Flaine will not be liable for any accidents caused by any of the skiers participating in the lesson.


article II - INSURANCE

The E.S.F subscribes to a  Professional indemnity Policy which covers the instructors in the course of their employment against any damage which they may cause to third parties as well as covering their clients whilst they are subject to the authority of the ESF and instructors.
