MMSCA Covid-19 Refund Policy – Updated 9/23

Due to the many questions about the upcoming season regarding the impact of the extreme unknowns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the Mt. Mansfield Ski Club & Academy has amended the refund policy  for out-of-state participants in the 2020/2021 Weekend Program whose travel to Vermont is affected by the State of Vermont’s cross-state travel quarantine requirements.

Note: The following policy does not apply to our Full Time, Winter Term, Tutorial programs, or in-state residents. Please refer to the MMSCA Student-Athlete and Parent Book for policies specific to those programs.

First and foremost, it is important that you familiarize yourself with MMSCA’s Requirements for Attendance and Covid-19 Policies, and The Vermont Department of Commerce and Community Development’s Cross-State Travel Restrictions.  We will continue to strictly follow these requirements and they could impact your family’s ability to participate in our programs if traveling from out-of-state.

As a result of these unknowns and our willingness to allow our customers to reevaluate their situations, the Covid-19 refund policy is as follows:

Date (2020)                      Refund amount

Before October 15th                  95%

Before November 15th              50%

After November 15th             no refund

Should you decide at some point that you would like a refund under these policy guidelines, please submit a request to our Finance Department by sending an email to [email protected].

As many of you are aware, as a non-profit organization we rely heavily on program participation to accurately predict and plan for our season ahead.  We are aware that these are unprecedented times and we appreciate your support and understanding as we prepare for what we hope to be a successful winter.
