FAQs on Miscellaneous Subjects

Why are meets deposits non-refundable in case of cancellation?

Many of our meets are very popular and places are filled very quickly. If meets deposits were refundable there would be nothing to deter members from booking places early on the off-chance that they might wish to attend, knowing that they can cancel at the last minute without it costing them anything.

Are there no circumstances when meets deposits might be refunded?

Yes, but only if the cancelled place can be filled by another member.

When are the alpine huts open? And how do I contact them? How do I book them? Can we have a booking form?
