  1. CANCELLATIONS & AMENDING A BOOKING

If THREE MOUNTAIN FAMILY HIKES INC. Cancels:

THREE MOUNTAIN FAMILY HIKES INC. reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any outing at any time without notice. Weather, safety hazards, wildlife activity, fire alerts, fire bans, park and trail closures, low registrations or other circumstances may occur: however, we will attempt to give as much advance notice as possible to our customers.

If a trip is cancelled by THREE MOUNTAIN FAMILY HIKES INC. due to reasons stated above or for an unforeseen incident, a full refund will apply. Additionally, some Activities may have their locations changed without notice due to the weather, safety hazards, wildlife activity, fire alerts, fire bans, park and trail closures. Participants will be informed of a change in location at the very latest at the meeting place before we proceed onto the trail or participating in the Activity.  If the Activity needs to be re-scheduled, THREE MOUNTAIN FAMILY HIKES INC. will make best commercial efforts to book registrants to another program on another date. If we are unable to reschedule, a full refund will apply.

If a User Needs To Cancel

Please email Lynda@threemountainfamilyhikes.ca to advise of your cancellation, and provide the date and Activity that you were attending. 

The following cancellation policies apply:

  • Full refund Seven days prior to the date of the Activity(ies)

  • 50% refund if cancelled before 48 hours (2 days) before the day of the Activity(ies)
  • No Refund for a No Call/No Show on the date of the Activity(ies).

Exceptions – I completely understand that some things are beyond our control such as unexpected road closures, car problems and sudden changes in mountain weather.  In addition, as a parent, I have said goodnight to a healthy child, only to be woken up at 3:00 a.m. by a sick child. Please email directly so that we can discuss these types of situations so that we can determine a mutually agreeable solution. 

Right To Decline Any Participant

THREE MOUNTAIN FAMILY HIKES INC. reserves the right to decline any participant, at any time, as a participant in any Activity. An example, but not limited to, is inappropriate gear for the activity i.e. open toe sandals for a hiking program.

Medical Disclosure

As a participant in an Activity, it is essential that a User give full disclosure on the medical information form so that THREE MOUNTAIN FAMILY HIKES INC. can be appropriately prepared for an emergency, should one occur. Failing to disclose all medical/ health information will result in the cancellation of the Booking and a refund will not be provided. 

No Pet Policy, Other than Service Animals

I love dogs, I have one, but she needs to stay at home, as will your dog.  My insurance does not cover hiking with dogs. Certified service dogs/other animals are an exception.  If you do arrive with a family pet, THREE MOUNTAIN FAMILY HIKES INC. will automatically cancel your participation in the Activity, and no refund will be provided. Thank you for your understanding

Non-Medicinal Drug, Alcohol and Smoking Policy 

THREE MOUNTAIN FAMILY HIKES INC. will not tolerate the use of non-medicinal drugs (including cannabis), alcohol or smoking during an Activity, and reserves the right to ban the participant(s), with no refund provided.
