Charter trips will follow all safety protocols in order to protect as much as possible our members from contracting coronavirus during a trip. We know that travel will not be the same because of social distancing, face masks and hygiene principles during travel and at the resorts. With safety as top of mind, we have made some critical decisions about the best way to offer charter trips.
Member surveys told us that there is little interest in trips to US destinations in 2021 due to the continuing coronavirus issues there. Therefore our charter trips are planned for Western Canada plus a European trip to Switzerland. Reduction in coronavirus conditions in the months ahead and in Winter 2021 will allow us to enjoy the thrill of skiing once again on those big mountains out west.
Due to the pandemic, HPSC will not be assigning roommates on this year’s trips. If you do not have a pre-arranged roommate, you will be required to pay the single room supplement.
As always, travel insurance is STRONGLY recommended for all trips. For charter trips, you can purchase from the tour operator a travel insurance policy covering cancellation due to medical conditions, and covering medical expenses while you are away. You can also add on to this policy, "Cancel For Any Reason" insurance (CFAR) which allows you to cancel at any time, or for any reason. CFAR is available on all trips.
For added coverage for the St. Moritz trip, your trip price includes Club Med pre-trip medical cancellation insurance (excluding COVID), and while on the trip, Club Med Covid-19 hospital/medical insurance which is “emergency out-of-country medical insurance”. It is included with your booking for all guests staying at a Club Med Village. For more specific details please read the detailed trip description pdf.
Here is what you will get on every charter trip except as noted in the description:
Signing up for a trip is by online registration. After you login, click on the links below to register for the trip of your choice. Registration continues until the trip is sold out. You must join the club and pay the membership fee for the current season to be eligible to register.
If you see a “Join Waitlist” button instead of the “Register” button, do not think that you have missed out. Go ahead and add your name to the waitlist; there is no cost to do so. We try to accommodate everybody on the waitlists by obtaining more space on each trip. You could also get a seat when there is a cancellation, which happens from time to time.
