Why is the refund policy complicated?This meetup is a break-even event. An important aspect of breaking-even is to not lose money. If, at the last minute, people decide not to attend and we are stuck with a very large bill for un-used lift tickets, the chances of breaking-even are dramatically decreased. Therefore, we require payment in advance. We have to give Seven Springs a firm commitment by Wednesday to secure the group discount rate for skiing/boarding on Saturday.

If you register for this event and later decide not to attend, you can sell, transfer, bequeath, or otherwise give away your ticket, as long as you inform the Event Organizer of the change. However, you will miss out on a great day of skiing or snowboarding, while your friend, who was nice enough to buy your ticket, will be having all the fun. Please don't forget to email the Event Organizer I don't want to give away your ticket to some random person claiming to have bough your ticket.
