Camp Booking Conditions

We want everyone to have a great time on our Team Training Camps and work hard to be the best skier they can be, take the opportunity to experience foreign culture, and the stunning nature of the Alpine environment.

Due to the complexities of organising and running the training, bookings will be accepted by Gravity only for the whole period of each training or for certain parts of each training (usually complete weeks), details of which are set out in the information for each training. Participants will be accepted for periods of less than a complete week, but payment must be made for the whole week or such other part of a training as may be applicable.

Courses must be booked through the www.gravity.academy website. Deposits must be paid at the time of booking. Deposits cannot be refunded in the event of cancellation by you. We strongly recommend you take out cancellation insurance.

Gravity reserves the right to charge additionally for use of Credit cards, but this will not exceed 2.5 percent. We hope you understand this is simply to cover transaction costs we incur to the card processor. Debit Cards however, will not incur any additional charges so please use a debit card if you can.
Applications for trainees and for accompanying parents must be made on the application forms provided by Gravity though our website.

Payment in full must be made by the date stipulated for each training which will usually be 6 weeks before the start of the training. Failure to pay in full by the due date will result in cancellation of your booking and the loss of deposit. You must take out cancellation insurance.

For each training camp, a minimum number of people need to book to enable the training to take place. Gravity will assess whether the minimum number has been achieved and inform you as soon as reasonably practicable and usually not less than 4 weeks before departure, if it becomes necessary to cancel a training for this reason. Gravity will refund all sums paid to Gravity in these circumstances, but you will not be entitled to compensation.

It is a requirement of booking that cancellation insurance is in place for all attending the course. It is a requirement of booking that appropriate travel/medical insurance is in place including helicopter evacuation and off-piste cover and personal belongings cover.

In the event of curtailment, or of sickness or injury, no refunds will be made to you unless Gravity has obtained a full refund from the relevant service provider(s). It is essential that lift passes are surrendered to Gravity immediately that it becomes apparent that they can no longer be used together with any supporting medical certificate (if not already in Gravity’s possession) that the lift company may require. Similar requirements apply to hire equipment. Refunds cannot be guaranteed as the terms and conditions of the appropriate lift company or other service provider will apply. We strongly recommend you take out cancellation insurance.

In the event of cancellation or curtailment or inability to ski because of inclement weather or lack of snow, no refunds will be made to you unless Gravity has obtained a full refund from the relevant service provider(s). In the event of lack of snow, or inclement weather, Gravity will endeavour to re-site the training, however this may result in extra costs which will be passed on to you.

Gravity is not equipped to care for trainees with special needs apart from special dietary requirements.

Code of Conduct

We want all of our trainees of all ages to have a fun and safe time on our Ski Team Camps and we politely ask Parents and Guardians ensure that trainees read through the following with their children so that they understand what is expected of them and the consequences of breaching of this Code of Conduct.

While we are pragmatic about the exuberance of youth, we do have expectations of good behaviour and respect from all participants.

The Alpine environment can be hazardous-Trainees must obey the instructions of coaches and staff at all times for their own personal safety.

Athletes must know and obey the FIS Alpine Responsibility Code Dress in an appropriate manner at all times and maintain good personal hygiene. All athletes are expected to be polite and respectful towards staff and others around them on their travels to and from the camp as well as on the mountain and in our accommodation.

It is each person’s responsibility to keep his or her own room tidy not only for their own benefit but also that of Hotel Staff that clean the rooms.

Athletes will respect each other’s right to privacy. Entering another athlete’s room is strictly prohibited. Please understand this is a safeguarding issue and is in place to protect everyone.

Any damage to facilities/accommodation used by the team requiring repair or replacement due to inappropriate conduct will be charged to the Athlete/Parent
Athletes should keep all important documents and valuables in a secure place or give them to House Parents/Coaches for safekeeping.

Personal belongings brought on trips are brought at the athletes’ own risk, and you have to be able to carry what you bring!

To make sure that we are in good shape to train and maximise training benefits, Coaches and House Parents will set curfews; they will reflect the age and needs of each athlete.

If a trainee’s behaviour is such that in Gravity’s reasonable opinion a training is at risk of being disrupted another trainee is inconvienced or the trainee puts the reputation of Gravity in jeopardy, the trainee may be asked to leave the training for the day. If a trainee is found to have been drinking alcohol, taking illegal drugs, stealing, involved in sexual activity or generally displaying antisocial or abusive behaviour, the trainee will no longer train with the team. In these instances we expect the trainee will be collected promptly from our accommodation location by the parent/gaurdian at the expense of the parents/gaurdian and loco parentis will be terminated at that time. No refund will be made for any part of training not undertaken and the cost of any other accommodation and travel expenses/loss of earnings or other costs incurred to pick up the trainees will be the responsibility of the trainee concerned (or the trainee’s parents if under 18).

Live Out Trainees

We welcome Live Out trainees and commit to delivering the same high levels of training to them

  • ‘Live Out’, i.e. trainees who make their own travel and accommodation arrangements, will be accepted subject to availability of places.
  • ‘Live Out’ trainees will be subject to the Gravity code of conduct.
  • Gravity will provide ‘Live Out’s with ski/race training on the slopes and lunch. Lift passes at the group rate may be purchased by prior arrangement.
  • Live Out’s will be responsible for their own transport to and from the slopes.
  • In view of difficulties encountered in the past with hoteliers,
    ‘Live Out’s will only be able to use the accommodation arranged for other participants by Gravity for meals by prior arrangement.
  • ‘Live Out’s will not be entitled to use such accommodation for other purposes such as ski waxing or eating packed lunches, neither will they be permitted access to resident trainees bedrooms.
  • Occasionally photographs of trainees may be used in publicity material relating to Gravity. Signing these terms and conditions confirms consent to the photograph being used. The name of the trainee will not be used unless Gravity have obtained the consent from the parents/guardians of the trainee.

Trainees (both adults and junior) and Parents/Guardians are authorising Gravity to act in loco parentis where appropriate, and are agreeing to be bound by the code of conduct and disciplinary procedures of Gravity.

By agreeing to these Terms & Conditions, I understand that Skiing/Ski Racing is classed as an inherently dangerous activity and in booking/attending this training camp these risks are accepted by trainees/participants and signatories.

By agreeing to these terms and conditions, I confirm that I have read and understand these terms and conditions.
