  4. If booking a trip within 30 days of the departure date, full payment is due upon booking.
  5. Extra days out: If the trip should extend beyond the scheduled days for any reason these extra days will cost $750/day. This cost will be spread over the members of the group. This generally apply to trips with a higher commitment grade and/or more remote trips. Ie. Mt Robson, waiting out weather in the Tantalus, etc.
  6. BlackSheep Adventure Sports requires that all guests are to read, understand and sign the Liability Waiver prior to commencing any Black Sheep Adventure Sports trips or courses. Waivers will be signed and witnessed in the presence of one of our guides so don’t worry about printing it beforehand but be sure you read it. It is imperative that you disclose any medical condition that could put you, the guide or others safety at risk.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

  2. Deposits are non-refundable but transferable at the discretion of BlackSheep so long as the cancellation is made more than 30 days prior to the trip or is initiated by BlackSheep.
  3. Cancellations made less than 30 days before the trip departure date are non-refundable but potentially transferable. BlackSheep will accept a substitute guest should you not be able to attend, provided they meet the skill level requirement for the trip. Black Sheep reserves the right to determine if the substitute guest meets these requirements. Any such substitutions are subject to a 10% administration fee.
  4. Cancellations made 30 or more days before the trip departure are refundable less any sunk costs and a 10% admin fee.
  5. Cancellations due to COVID-19 related border closures or travel restrictions are transferable to another guided product less any charges that we incur from third parties such as lodges, credit card companies and so on.
  6. Trips involving helicopter flights that are cancelled or postponed the day of the trip because the weather is not flyable incur a cost of $250.

Trip and Interruption Insurance

It is highly recommended to purchase medical insurance (if applicable) and traveler’s trip interruption insurance to cover travel costs and trip costs in the event you have to cancel your trip due to personal illness or injury, family emergency or other personal conflicts. If climbing within Canadian National Parks, the purchase of a park pass is required and this also acts as mountain rescue insurance if needed.

Mountain Weather & Conditions

Part of the mountain experience is dealing with changing weather and conditions. BlackSheep Adventure Sports ensures its guides are continually monitoring current and forecasted weather and conditions. Occasionally a program will require changes due to unfavorable weather conditions and or other circumstances, which may result in alternate trip locations and objectives or dates. If a date change creates an issue we will apply your credit towards another product.
