In mountaineering, hiking, snowshoeing, ice climbing or skiing, the weather, bad mountain conditions or the level of the participants can lead to program changes.

Failure to comply with safety instructions such as participation in an activity by not respecting the level requirements (technical and physical) detailed on the technical sheet or by presenting equipment that does not comply with that requested in this same technical sheet, may justify exclusion of the client from the activity.
