If there is any damage to the sled or sled bag, the guest will incur an access fee for the cost of the imported equipment (1500 Swedish Kronor).

Also, such excluded guests will be escorted to the nearest town and left to arrange their return at their own responsibility and expense. Noksana Mushing will be absolved from responsibility for these guests due to a breach of safety guidelines.
