Frequently Asked Questions.
What happens once I booked online or over the phone?
After booking with us, you will receive a confirmation email outlining the dates and times,clothing and gear list, tour itinerary, and if applicable the requested rental information. Please double check the information.
What should I wear to be comfortable?
Generally, we recommend to wear casual, comfortable clothing with the option to layer. For experiences in the outdoors it is always better to plan ahead and prepare for all kinds of conditions. The weather in the mountain changes fast. Because of that we recommend clothing items that you can layer on to adjust to different levels of energy output (increase of warmth) and weather. As a general rule of thumb avoid cotton as it can absorb moisture, but remains wet and in the process, loses the ability to insulate and on top if it, cotton doesn’t dry quickly. We recommend wool or synthetic fibres.

For a rental item for a full full refund you must cancel 24 hrs prior to your rental booking. For a Guided Tour you need to cancel 72 hours before the start of the tour.
