1. SCOPE OF APPLICATION OF THE REGULATIONS
2. VALIDITY OF THE SKIPASSES
Regional skipasses have two levels of validity:
3. PERIODS OF USABILITY
Holders of regional passes are entitled, on the days of validity of their skipasses, to ski in the Swiss ski area of the 4 Vallées/Verbier during the periods of opening established by the respective ski resorts. They can be used in the following ways:
- holders of season passes are entitled to ski for free for a maximum of 6 days, with a limit of 1 day per week;
- holders of multiday passes for 6 or more days are entitled to a 50% discount on the daily skipass.
4. PERIODS OF USABILITY
The publication of the start and end dates of each ski season by the individual companies participating in Skipass Valle d’Aosta is purely indicative and does not constitute a commitment to open an individual resort or to keep it open.
Operations of facilities during each ski season may be suspended at any time, temporarily or permanently, at the sole discretion of the companies participating in Skipass Valle d’Aosta, on the basis of weather conditions, snow conditions, the state of the ski slopes or for safety reasons or when there are well-founded reasons.
Operations may also be suspended at any time, temporarily or permanently, when this is required for reasons of force majeure, such as electricity blackouts, strikes including by the companies’ own staff, fires, earthquakes, wars, terrorist attacks, epidemics, pandemics, orders from the authorities and, more generally, for reasons beyond the control of the companies participating in Skipass Valle d’Aosta.
In the event of a temporary or permanent closing of facilities for one of the above reasons, the buyer will not be entitled to any refund or compensation, unless this is provided for by mandatory provisions of law.
In particular, with regard to season and/or annual passes, the user acknowledges that, by purchasing the pass, the user accepts the risk that the ski season may be shorter than expected, this risk being offset by the advantage of being able to use the ski facilities at a flat rate.
If embarking on long routes, it is the user’s responsibility to carefully check the times for the return transport. The companies participating in Skipass Valle d’Aosta cannot be held responsible in the event that the user is unable to return to the departure station for reasons attributable to that user.
Ski lifts in operation are usually indicated in notices displayed at the ticket offices.
The individual companies participating in Skipass Valle d’Aosta reserve the right to close to the public, for the time strictly necessary, certain ski runs, routes, areas and premises of the ski resort if required for competitions or sports events. In such circumstances, competitors and the staff involved may be given exclusive and priority use of certain facilities.
In the cases referred to in this section, as well as in the case of delays and waiting at the lifts due to any reason, the pass holder will not be entitled to any, even partial, reimbursement or compensation.

This document, prepared pursuant to Articles 13 and 14 of the GDPR 2016/679, applies to all types of tickets, as specified below. “Resort tickets” refer to all the travel tickets/passes that are only valid in the ski areas managed by the Company. “Resort tickets with VDA extension” refer to all the travel tickets/passes that are also valid in the other ski areas of Valle d’Aosta, on the cableways of Mont Blanc and the ski resorts of La Rosière, Alagna and Alpe di Mera, for a limited and predefined number of days. “Regional tickets” refer to all the travel tickets/passes valid in the ski areas of Valle d’Aosta, on the cableways of Mont Blanc and the ski resorts of La Rosière, Alagna and Alpe di Mera. “Resort” refers to the ski areas managed by Pila S.p.A.
Data Controller. The Data Controller is Pila S.p.A. with headquarters in Gressan (Aosta) Frazione Pila n. 16, represented by the Chairman of the Board of Directors and acting Legal Representative.
Data Protection Officer. The Company has appointed a Data Protection Officer. The contact details are shown in the Privacy section on the skilife.ski website.
Type of data processed. In order to purchase tickets/passes, it is necessary to provide personal and contact details. A photograph is only required for certain types of tickets/passes (solely for the purpose of verifying that access is being made by the person entitled to do so). Any bank data necessary for completing the payment may also be processed. For marketing purposes, with specific consent, contact data may be processed. As part of the video surveillance system, user images are processed. Monitoring the passages through turnstiles involves the processing of location or position data by reading the identifier tags using RFID technology. In order to apply any tariff reductions, the Company may process – with the consent of the person concerned (the Data Subject) – data that Article 9 GDPR 2016/679 defines as “special” as they can reveal information on a person’s health. The processing of such data is limited solely to assessing eligibility for the reduction. Health-related data may be used in case of first aid being administered.
Source of personal data. The data can be collected directly from the data subject or through the Joint Data Controllers or otherwise subjects, natural or legal persons, appointed as external data processors. Monitoring the passages through turnstiles is carried out electronically. A video surveillance system is operational in the areas managed by the Company: the images are collected electronically (see the specific section on video surveillance)
Type of data processed. In order to purchase tickets/passes, it is necessary to provide personal details (name, surname, date of birth and tax code – if applicable) and contact details (residential address). A photograph is only required for certain types of tickets/passes (to ensure that access is being made by the person entitled to do so). Any bank data necessary to complete the payment may also be processed. For marketing purposes, with specific consent, contact data such as phone number and email address may be processed. As part of the video surveillance system, user images are processed. Monitoring the passages through turnstiles involves the processing of location or position data by reading the identifier tags using RFID technology. In order to apply any tariff reductions, the Company may process – with the consent of the person concerned (the Data Subject) – data that Article 9 GDPR 2016/679 defines as “special” as they can reveal information on a person’s health. The processing of such data is limited solely to assessing eligibility for the reduction.
Monitoring passages through turnstiles. To prevent dishonest use of travel tickets/passes and to facilitate the search for missing persons, the Company has a system for detecting people passing through turnstiles based on RFID technology. The reader device on the turnstile remotely checks the validity of tickets, allowing users to pass through “hands-free”. This instrument does not read biometric data and does not memorise the user’s movements on the ski slopes or hiking trails. If the Company intends to use the data for the purpose of profiling customer preferences, it will ask for specific consent from the persons concerned
Purpose and legal basis of the processing. Data processing is carried out for the following purposes: 1. Requests for the purchase of tickets/passes and issuing them; 2. Dealing with payment; 3. Fulfilment of civil, fiscal and accounting obligations connected with the issue of transport tickets/passes and the provision of any first aid in cases where payment of a fee is required; 4. Provision of transport services and guarantee of use of the same by the buyer; 5. Protection of company assets through the use of video surveillance systems; 6. Protection of company assets by verifying the legitimate use of the travel document by requesting a photo be applied to the travel document; 7.

The data collected for the purposes referred to in point 12 are kept for 10 years if the action taken incurs a fee and the consequent invoicing; in other cases, for 3 years. In all cases where it is necessary to go to court for the evaluation, exercise or defence of a right of the Data Controller, the retention period continues until the completion of the judicial process.
Nature of data collecting. It is obligatory to provide certain data for activating and performing the contractual relationship: refusal to provide such data will make it impossible to proceed.
