ASSUMPTION OF RISKS - ALPINE TERRAIN, BACKCOUNTRY TRAVEL, WEATHER ETC. 

I am aware that wilderness activities involve inherent risks, dangers and hazards. Natural Wilderness Hazards are unpredictable and uncontrollable such as; Avalanche Terrain, Land Slides, Crevasses, Lightning, Storms, Steep, Loose and Slippery Terrain, Swift and Deep Water, Flashfloods and Dangerous Animals. Other Hazards such as: Avalanches, Forest Fires, Rock, Ice and Cornice Fall, can occur frequently in the terrain used for wilderness activities, whith some of these caused either by natural forces or by persons travelling through the terrain. I acknowledge and accept that the Releasees may fail to predict whether the wilderness terrain is safe for wilderness activities or whether any of the hazards listed herein or other natural hazard may occur. The terrain used for wilderness activities is uncontrolled, unmarked, not inspected and involves many risks, dangers and hazards in addition to those listed herein. These may include, but are not limited to: falling; ice, rocks and cornices; crevasses; cliffs; trees, tree wells and tree stumps; creeks; rivers; hot spring; lakes; rocks; boulders; forest deadfall; holes and depressions on or below the snow surface; cliffs; variable and difficult snow conditions; snowcat roads and road banks, fences, and other man-made structures; snow immersion; impact or collision with terrain, other persons including other guests, vehicles or objects; landslides, volcanic activity, flash floods, noxious gases; loss of balance or control; slips, trips and falls; becoming lost or separated from one’s party or guide; drowning; hypothermia; exposure; infectious disease contracted through viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi which may be transmitted through direct or indirect contact; equipment failure or misuse; being involved in a company guest transport accident, whether negligent or not; negligent first aid; negligence of other persons, including other guests; and NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES, INCLUDING THE FAILURE OF THE RELEASEES TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT ME FROM THE RISKS DANGERS AND HAZARDS OF HIKING AND CLIMBING. Communication and response in the alpine terrain is difficult and in the event of an accident, rescue and medical treatment may not be available. Wilderness and Alpine weather conditions may be extreme and can change rapidly and without warning, making travel by helicopter, snowcat, snowmobile or other modes of travel hazardous and slow.

I AM AWARE OF THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH WILDERNESS ACTIVITIES AND I FREELY ACCEPT AND FULLY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS AND THE POSSIBILITY OF PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR LOSS RESULTING THEREFROM. 

I Agree

The following participants are at increased risk of injury or death: Snowboarders and Skiers; due not using an avalanche air bag, due to using bindings that do not have a releasable system in the case of a fall or that use a retention device. Via ferrata, mountaineering, rock and ice climbing participants; due to inherent fall potential such as a fall resulting in hitting terrain, tour infrastructure or other participants.
