I acknowledge that if I believe Activity conditions are unsafe, I will immediately discontinue participation and notify OUTDOOR CONNECTIONS LLC of my discontinuation in said Activity.
I fully understand that this Activity may involve risks of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death, which may be caused by my own actions, or inactions, those of others participating in the Activity, the conditions I which the Activity takes place, or the negligence of the “releasees” named below; and that there may be other risks either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time; and I fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibilities for losses, costs, and damages I incur as a result of my participation in the Activity.

We understand that sometimes “stuff happens”, so we will try to accommodate your needs. Generally speaking, if you cancel a reservation more than 2 weeks before the trip date, you get a 100% credit toward a future trip of your choice.
If you cancel more than 7 days before the trip date, you get a 50% credit. Unfortunately, cancellations with less than 7 days notice receive no credit – however we will strive to make reasonable reparations for hiking only trips since equipment, etc., does not need to be reserved.
If you are a "no show" or arrive late and miss the van then unfortunately you do not get a refund or credit.
A forecast of light or moderate rain will not cancel a trip. Actually, contrary to what you may think, a little adverse weather can show you things you wouldn’t normally see on a sunny day… and most likely we will have the park to ourselves.
O.C. would cancel a trip if there is a forecast of severe weather (heavy rain, etc) that we believe would compromise the quality and safety of the trip. You will be notified of a cancellation at least 12 hours before the scheduled departure time. If we cancel a trip, you get a 100% credit toward a future trip of your choice.
Any other cancellations made by O.C. due to unfavorable conditions (i.e. low water levels for a rafting trip or patchy snow conditions for a ski/snowshoe trip) would result in a 100% credit toward a future trip of your choice.
