- Refund Policy and General Procedures
***Effective for the 2019-20 Ski Season***
[SEASON SKI PASS REFUND POLICY - EFFECTIVE ONLY UNTIL SLOPES ARE OPEN]
If a refund of a season pass is desired, refunds can be obtained with no questions asked until the ski slopes are open for business. Credit card paid passes can be refunded at the ski rental office when the office is open during normal operating hours. Those passes paid for by cash or check will be refunded by check one to two weeks after cancellation. A processing charge of $5.00 will be applied. Request for cash paid season pass should be initiated at the ski rental office. Telephone is (845)938-8810/3726). Thank you for your cooperation.
SEASON PASS TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. Season passes are non-transferable. Reselling or allowing another person to use the pass constitutes theft of services. The Season Pass will be revoked and the action dealt with by MWR management.
2. I agree and understand that my season pass may be canceled without refund, if abuse my privileges by acts that endanger my life or others, or violate the N.Y.S. Code Rule 54, Article 18, "SAFETY IN SKIING CODE" & "NSAA Your Responsibility Code."
VICTOR CONSTANT SKI AREA - GENERAL AREA TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. No snow toys allowed (sleds, toboggans, toy skis and snowboards without metal edges) allowed at any time.
2. Victor Constant will not be responsible for any stolen or damaged property. Unfortunately items can be stolen if left unattended, we suggest to all of our customers to lock up skis and boards. If something does get taken or damaged we always recommend that you file a complaint with the Military Police (845) 938-3333.
3. Our lift requires routine maintenance. We will not be responsible for grease damage to any outwear due to grease dripping from lift. This is an inherent risk of the sport.
4. We ask that all snowboarders use a leash with their snowboard. We will be spot checking for leashes on lift lines. If you forget your leash, we have them available at our retail store for $6.
5. While we recommend lessons through our ski school, parents are welcome to teach their children but both parent and child must have a valid snow pass and equipment while on the snow. We are looking out for your protection.
6. We ask that parents stay off the snow and behind fencing while watching their child's lesson.
7. As per Army regulation 215-1, chapter 8, section II, 8-24, line 17 - No member, guest or group will be permitted to bring food or beverage into a MWR FB&E facility for consumption on the premises. If you bring your own food you can eat it on the outside deck portion of the lodge area. If you are seen eating outside food inside the lodge, you may be asked to move outside during this time.
- SEEKING SKI & SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTORS!
[Victor Constant Ski Area at West Point is Recruiting Ski and Snowboard Instructors]
We are recruiting ski and snowboard instructors. All of our instructors are volunteers who receive season passes, free training, in season clinics and access to ski at West Point during operating hours. This is an opportunity to share your love of snow sports with the community. Our ski and snowboard weekend lessons are scheduled on Saturday and Sunday and run for one hour each. We ask that instructors teach (or are available to teach) 16 lesson hours during the season. We welcome new instructors who are PSIA/AASI certified or brand new. We provide free training.
Interested instructors may contact Madelene Knaggs at firstname.lastname@example.org for more detail and to volunteer. Join us for a great winter!
