Review Waivers

What is The Waiver?

The waiver is a Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement (“the waiver”). By signing the waiver you will waive or give up certain legal rights, including the right to sue for negligence, breach of contract or breach of the occupiers liability act or claim compensation following an accident.

Who has to sign the Waiver?

Our insurance requires that all participants on Diana Lake trips (summer and winter) must sign a waiver. When you register for a trip you will be asked to read and agree to the waiver prior to finalizing your reservation. We will have a paper waiver for you to sign in person at the start of your trip.

Winter Accomodations & Catering

Winter 2023 February and March Availability

Come relax, make new friends, or spend time with old ones in our rustic-style mountain lodge. Experienced backcountry skiers, snowboarders and snow-shoers will love spending time in our snow-filled valley.

We are offering winter accommodation (three, four or five night trips) from approximately the end of January to early March for the winter of 2023. Catering services are available, including self catered, half catered (appetizers & dinner), and full catering (all meals and snacks).

A maximum group size of 6 guests ensures a cozy intimate gathering, and the lodge is equipped with all the amenities needed to be comfortable in the backcountry. There will also be a custodian and cook on location.

We are not able to offer guided trips, but groups can bring their own guide in addition to their group. We can provide a list of potential guides that could be retained.

Policies

An Explanation of Our Normal Deposit and Refund Policy

Our policies may seem onerous but we operate in a very different environment than most accommodations. The majority of our bookings come months ahead of the actual booking dates and we find that our clients frequently are very restricted in the dates that they can go. So once a date is reserved, the likelihood of booking that date with another party is greatly reduced, hence the ‘no refunds of deposit’ policy. Sometimes we are able to offer last minute bookings at reduced rates if someone cancels, thus the sliding refund rates on the non-deposit portion.

We share the risk of a cancellation due to reasons beyond anyone’s control (eg. fire, area closure, etc) with clients by offering to rebook at a later date in those situations.

Please note that in order to operate we have to make substantial investments in supplies, equipment, maintenance, insurance, fees, lease costs, etc well ahead of the season. These costs cannot be recovered in the case of cancellations.

POLICIES

50% deposit due at time of trip reservation. Remaining balance due 2 months prior to trip departure date. Deposit is non-refundable.

We accept cash, cheque, money order, and Interac e-transfer. Exact change preferred, as we cannot guarantee the amount of change we will have available, due to our location.

Cancellation 1+ month prior to departure date results in 50% refund of non-deposit portion.

Cancellation 14 days-1 month prior to departure date results in 25% refund of non-deposit portion.

Cancellation less than 14 days prior to trip departure results in no refund. 

Please note that an individual that needs to cancel can be replaced with someone else without penalty.

If a trip is cancelled due to situations beyond anyone’s control (fire, area closure, etc.), we will offer the opportunity to reschedule the trip for another time or the next season at no charge.

We will be carefully watching the COVID-19 situation and updating our cancellation policies next spring prior to our summer season. 

We do accept walk-ins, but cannot guarantee space if no contact is made beforehand. To avoid being disappointed, please email first! Payment must be made in full before you stay. 

We recommend purchasing travel insurance if you are travelling a long distance to visit us. We accept no responsibility for missed flights or delays due to road conditions, weather, fire, illness, emergencies, or other acts of God. The Backcountry Lodges of British Columbia  Association has a link to one insurance company, Lifestyle Financial, which offers no obligation quotes. : Backcountry Lodges of British Columbia – Get a Quote.
