Winter sports enthusiasts dream of big mountains and snow covered peaks. But where to go, what's the best time of year, where to stay, who can I go with? All important pieces to a great trip and luckily the High Park Ski Club has decades of putting them all together into amazing experiences.
Charter trips will follow all safety protocols in order to protect our members as much as possible from contracting coronavirus during a trip. Travel will be adjusted due to social distancing, face masks and hygiene principles during travel and at the resorts. HPSC will require masking on the bus portion of our trips. For vaccinations, members will need to comply with the medical requirements in place at the time for Ontario, and in the destination province or country to which they are travelling. This may mean showing proof of vaccination and boosters. Regulations may change prior to your trip or while on the trip, either at the departure point or at the resort. No matter what the changes may be, HPSC will have safety as top of mind.
Note that if you are signing up for an charter trip this season, you need to take the responsibility to keep informed of Canadian and local destination Covid testing and documentation requirements. At this time, we don't know what 2023 will bring for entry to the other country or return to Canada. Regulations could change at any time. In any case, testing is at member cost and is incremental to the listed price of the trip. Members are responsible to arrange for any trip cancellation and medical insurance and need to ensure they understand the specific exclusions of their policies.
As always, travel insurance is STRONGLY recommended for all trips. For charter trips, you can purchase from the tour operator a travel insurance policy covering cancellation due to medical conditions, and covering medical expenses while you are away. You can also add on to this policy, "Cancel For Any Reason" insurance (CFAR) which allows you to cancel at any time, or for any reason. CFAR is available on all trips for an added fee as specified in the descriptions.
For a bit of added coverage for Peisey-Vallandry and Charlevoix, the trip price includes Club Med basic hospital/medical insurance which is “emergency out-of-country medical insurance”. Trip cancellation before departure is not covered by Club Med insurance, nor are trip interruption costs due to Covid covered. This insurance is included with the booking for all guests staying at a Club Med Village. For specific details you may request a detailed insurance policy outlining specifics of coverage pdf.
For air travel, it is each member's individual responsibility to check all travel documents and airline carrier for departure information. Every member is advised to consult the airline's website and the country of destination website at least 2 weeks in advance of departure, and regularly thereafter until departure, for any Covid related regulations that may impact the member's ability to board the flight and successfully enter the country.
Here is what you will get on every charter trip except as noted in the description:
