Whom should I contact, if i am unsatisfied with the service provided by the partner?
In case you are not satisfied with the service provided to you by one of our partners, it is important to inform our partner as soon as possible. This way we can ensure that the problem is identified and taken care of immediately. Our partners are responsible for the quality of the skiing lessons and the rented equipment and therefore any questions concerning these issues should be directed at them as Skimundi only acts as an intermediary.
However we will ALWAYS be happy to hear from you and to assist you in any way we can, whether you have faced any problems or challenges or just have general feedback for us. We continuously assess all our partners and we believe that you can always improve - not just at skiing! :)
