Please be advised that your use of the Site signifies that you agree to the Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with the Terms and Conditions, please do not use the Site.

By using the Site, you agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by, and to comply with, these Terms and Conditions, and further acknowledge that any information that you provide is truthful and that the disclosure of such information does not violate the legal rights of others. By accessing this Site, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age or that you are the parent or legal guardian of a minor who will be using the Site and you have the legal authority to bind the minor to these Terms and Conditions.

Products and Services

The Site contains information on the products and services offered by CSC (the “Products and Services”), and it acts as a means of communicating with CSC. Neither the use nor the sale of the Products and Services is intended where prohibited by law. Only Canadian laws apply to the Site and to the use of the Site by any users, notwithstanding the place of residence and physical location of such users.

While we use reasonable efforts to ensure that all information contained on the Site is accurate and current, your use of the Site is at your own risk. The Site is not the authoritative source of information about the Product or Services or about CSC, its advertisers, suppliers, business partners, sponsors or other third parties. Changes may be made at any time to the Products and Services (or any part thereof) that we provide on the Site without prior notice to you. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any changes, suspensions or discontinuances of the Products and Services (or any part thereof) on the Site.

Product-Specific Conditions

Prices are in Canadian Dollars. Products cannot be used in conjunction with any other coupon, discount, or promotion. Refunds or exchanges will not be given under any circumstances. Orders accompanied by post-dated cheques will not be accepted. If payment is being made by cheque, it is recommended that the cheque be sent by courier to ensure timely delivery. A $25.00 administrative fee will be charged in the event of a returned/NSF cheque and this fee must be paid in order to receive the product purchased. The purchase of any CSC product is conditional upon the purchaser’s agreement to be bound by CSC’s Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims and Indemnity Agreement. In addition, the Purchaser will be bound by any rules and regulations and any exclusion of liability language in effect at the ski area(s) at which s/he uses the purchased products.

The laws of the Province of Ontario and federal laws of Canada will govern these Terms and Conditions.
