Fees
 I agree that changes which I am permitted make to any reservation, such as to the number of travelers, age of travelers, bedding configurations, additional experiences requested, or other confirmed information, may result in an additional charge, or the imposition of a full or partial cancellation fee or administrative fee. Except as specified in the trip materials, I will be responsible for all expenses associated with me or my guests’ participation in my trip. I understand that other experiences I incur from third parties in connection with my trip (ie visas, activities with vendors) may have a different cancellation and refundability terms and conditions, and that payments made by me to such parties may be 100% non-refundable. 

Force Majeure
NGT and our partners will not be responsible for me or my guests’ costs resulting from costs resulting from NGT’s, our vendors’, and our partners failure to deliver any service if the cancellation is due to forces beyond NGT’s control, including but not limited to: tour operator failures, flight cancellations, acts of war, government instability, acts of government, terrorist attacks, acts of nature, power outages, system failures, government travel warnings applicable to any location included in a trip, or any event beyond NGT’s our vendor’s or partner’s control that makes a NGT trip unavailable. Under no circumstances will NGT be required to provide alternative accommodation or reimburse or credit me any fees paid or any expenses in connection with any such cancellation.

Travel Requirements
I understand the proper documentation is required to be obtained by me and my guests for all trips with NGT and that any individual (whether me or any of my guests) who fails to have proper documentation at the time of departure may be prohibited from participating and will not receive any credit or refund. Proper documentation typically means a valid passport (or Visa when applicable) for international trips, and a valid government ID for domestic trips. I agree to furnish information to NGT in a timely manner that is required for this. I also understand that not arriving on time for flight departures may cause me to forfeit travelling with NGT and I will not receive any refund or credit.

Additional Documents and Preferences
I will promptly execute and deliver to the NGT or any partner agreements, instruments, certificates, or other documents as the NGT or its partners or vendors may reasonable request or as may otherwise be necessary or proper to facilitate my participation on trips and that of any minors travelling with me. I understand that such documents may impose additional terms and conditions regarding my trip. Furthermore I agree to respond to requests from NGT or vendors or partners regarding trip specific preferences for me and my guests by any deadline specified by NGT. If I fail to respond to any such request, I agree that NGT may make a selection on behalf of me and my guests, and will use its efforts to accommodate a preference I submit after the deadline, but I understand that NGT may not be able to accommodate such preferences, and that the NGT’s selection on my behalf because of my failure to respond by the specified deadline is binding

Other Included and Not Included Items
Additional expenses due to delayed, cancelled, or changed flights are not included. In these events NGT will work with the vendor and participants to find alternative arrangements. This is a courtesy and neither NGT nor the vendor can be held responsible for denied boarding nor for the additional cost incurred, nor for monies not recovered for missed arrangements due to air delays.

Changes- The price of my experience will not change after I have paid my deposit, except that NGT or its Vendors may impose an additional charge only for to the extent of new or increased taxes, tariffs, de-icing fees for aircraft, or fuel surcharges after the prices were published.

I understand that NGT or its contractors may take photos of me and other guests during the experience.  By accepting these terms and conditions, I give NGT expressed permission to use photos of me in their promotional materials, promotional materials of their partners, press releases, on their website,  in social media, and other forms of promotion that may use to promote this and other trips.

Physical Condition
I represent as follows. Neither I nor anyone travelling with me has any physical condition or disability that could create a hazard or risk to me or to other travelers in the group. If I or anyone travelling with me has a physical or other condition or disability that could create a hazard or risk to me or to other, I will disclose it to NGT at the time of booking or before the trip. If I learn of any such condition during travel, I will disclose it to NGT or its vendors. I understand that if I am under the heavy influence of alcohol or drugs, or not physically or mentally fit,  and if the NGT staff, Snowwater staff, or air carrier staff deem me inappropriate to participate in any activity for any reason, including in the flight or skiing, I may be excluded from any activity and will not hold NGT or the Air Carrier liable. I understand this trip will require a minimum level of fitness and proficiency in skiing. NGT or its vendors may in their sole discretion but has no duty to, prevent participation in any activity or portion for a trip that it considers unsuitable due to fitness level.

NGT (including its employees, shareholders, officers, directors, successors, and agents) does not own or operate any person or entity which is to, or does provide good or services for your trip and experiences.

If this occurs I will be responsible for my own transportation and will not hold NGT responsible. This also applies to any group activities. If I am late to group activities, the group may leave without me, and I will be responsible for my own transportation, potentially forfeiting the amount paid for the activity with no refund or other arrangements.
