Cancellation advice - how to get refunds?

We are booked to spend 5 days skiing in Canada next week, but the weather looks attrocious -- sub zero temps every single day! Any advice on what I might say or do to get this trip cancelled and get my money back?

I guess you could tell them that you are a geographically challenged total wuss and didn't realize that Canada is a northern hemisphere country with real winters.

Hi, Remydog! Don't cancel your trip b/c of the weather!!!! We have been skiing all winter & although it has been colder than "normal" for a longer period than usual, we have been having a great time. Wear layers, face mask & "hand/foot" warmers in your gloves & boots. You can buy these @ the hill. Also, remember that sub zero here is measured on the Celsius scale. So, for example, -1C is about 30F or 31F which is not really all that cold. Cold is minus 30F with wind chill!!!
BTW, where did you book?

Yes Remydog - where did you book??

It is melting right now in the West - any warmer and there won't be snow to ski on!!!!

As mentioned above, are you looking at forecasted temps in Celsius? The forecasts I've seen are rather usual for next week.

Getting your money back will depend upon the cancellation policies you agreed to when booking...Surely you checked typical temps/weather for your dates prior to booking?

Best bet is to go ahead and go - just dress so as to be comfortable while skiing or out and about.
