SASS GLOBAL TRAVEL, LLC

RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK

 

THIS IS A LEGAL DOCUMENT. SIGNING IT MAY LIMIT YOUR RIGHTS! You must read and understand this document before signing. If you have questions, consult an attorney.

 

PARTIES:

This Agreement is made by and between the Participant and SASS Global Travel, LLC; Whistler High Terrain; Andrew Burns; Travis Moore and their respective directors, officers, employees, contractors, coaches, guides, staff, drivers, mechanics and representatives (all of whom are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Releasees”).

 

DEFINITIONS:

In this Agreement, the term "wilderness activities" shall include but is not limited to: alpine skiing, telemark skiing, snowboarding, touring, splitboarding, snowmobiling and all activities, services and use of facilities either provided by or arranged by the Releasees including orientation and instructional sessions or classes, and all travel by or movement around snowmobiles or other vehicles. The term snowmobiling shall apply broadly to anyone using a snowmobile, owned by themselves, or by the Releasees, or another person, or a business renting snowmobiles, and shall include all activities, services and use of facilities either provided by or arranged by the Releasees or in any way related to snowmobiling including, but not limited to: guided tours, sled skiing, doubles, orientation, instructional sessions, transportation; accommodation and recreational activities in addition to snowmobiling, loading, unloading and travel in or movement around snowmobiles and other vehicles. These definitions are intended to be interpreted as broadly as possible to effect the intent and purpose of the release.

 

ASSUMPTION OF RISKS:

I am aware that participation in wilderness activities, involves many risks, dangers, and hazards. Avalanches occur frequently in the terrain used for wilderness activities and may be caused by natural forces or by persons traveling through the terrain. I am aware that snowmobiling places me at a higher risk of being caught in an avalanche than skiing or snowboarding.  I am aware that the Releasees may fail to predict whether the terrain is safe or whether an avalanche may occur. The terrain used for wilderness activities is uncontrolled, unmarked, not inspected, and involves many risks, dangers, and hazards in addition to that of an avalanche. These may include, but are not limited to: cornices, crevasses, cliffs, trees, tree wells, tree stumps; forest dead fall, creeks, rocks, rock fall; boulders, holes and depressions on or below the snow surface; variable and difficult snow conditions; equipment failure; encounters with domestic and wild animals; impact or collision with other persons; becoming lost or separated from one’s party or guide; negligence of other persons; and NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES, INCLUDING THE FAILURE BY THE RELEASEES TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT ME FROM THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS OF WILDERNESS ACTIVITIES. Communication in the alpine terrain may be difficult, and in the event of an accident or illness, rescue, medical treatment, and evacuation may not be available or may be delayed. Alpine weather conditions may be extreme and can change rapidly and without warning.

 

EQUIPMENT:

I understand that I will be demonstrating or using equipment, including snowmobiles, that I am probably unfamiliar with and may not understand. I agree to ask questions concerning the use and operation of the equipment before I test the equipment. I understand that using such equipment in these conditions creates a higher risk of equipment failure and injury. I agree to not hold the Releasees liable for any failure of the equipment under these conditions and my knowledge and skill. I also understand and agree not to sue the Releasees for any equipment failure, breakage or malfunction of the equipment. I am participating in the activity of my own free will and volition and agree to learn more about the equipment. Because I am unfamiliar with the use and operation of this equipment, I have a greater chance of injury due to loss of control.

 

I AM AWARE OF THE RISKS, DANGERS, AND HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH WILDERNESS ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING SNOWMOBILING, 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.

April 21, 2024

 

NON-SCHEDULED OR EMERGENCY EVACUATION, RESCUE OR FIRST AID:

I acknowledge and agree that all expenses associated with non-scheduled or emergency evacuation, rescue or first aid will be my responsibility and will not be covered by the Releasees. The Releasees have a zero tolerance policy for alcohol and drugs before or during the duration of my rental or guided experience. The Participant must have a valid unrestricted drivers’ license to operate a snowmobile. I agree to adhere to safety procedures and other rules as stipulated by the Releasees, and absolve them of any responsibility for my personal actions I further warrant that I consider my health and fitness level appropriate for participation in snowmobiling activities and I agree that I am solely responsible for supplying safe and appropriate personal clothing and equipment for outdoor use in the prevailing season. I understand that the Releasees make no warranty, guarantee or representation to me with respect to the safety or appropriateness of the clothing and equipment that I have chosen to use in the wilderness activities.

 

I acknowledge and agree that I will be traveling in a foreign country on foreign airlines, buses, train and other modes of transportation. SASS Global Travel, LLC is not a Common Carrier but is in the business of providing recreational and instruction snow sports activities. Transportation to and from the activity is incidental to the activity. Accidents occur during travel to and from the starting and ending point of the trip over trails, roads, and highways. I agree the terms of this release shall cover any injury I receive due to a vehicular accident on the part of the Releasees whether by their negligence or the negligence of others.

 

I acknowledge and agree that decisions made by the coaches, guides and participants are in a wilderness setting, based on a variety of perceptions and evaluations which by their nature are imprecise and subject to errors in judgment. Decisions of the guides, coaches, contractors or other Releasees may be based on experience, observation, participant abilities and numerous other factors at the time. Weather can change, participants can tire and abilities can vary from those stated; which may change an entire situation placing people at risk. As a Participant, I accept these risks and situations based on guide decisions and other factors.

 

I acknowledge and agree that: 1) modern medical care as I know it is unlikely to be available outside the United States; 2) I may be several hours travel from a medical facility; 3) transportation may be by car, ambulance, litter or other form of local transportation; 4) the guides will probably be the immediate medical care that will be available; 5) the medical facility I may be treated in will not have the same standards as hospitals or doctors offices in the United States; 6) the medical personnel I will be treated by may not have the same training as medical personnel in the U.S.; 7) I may suffer mental anguish or trauma from the experience or injuries.

 

RELEASE OF LIABILITY, WAIVER OF CLAIMS AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT:

In consideration of the Releasees allowing me to participate in wilderness activities as defined in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is acknowledged, I hereby agree as follows:

 

1. TO WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS that I have or may in the future have against the Releasees and TO RELEASE THE RELEASEES from any and all liability for any loss, damage, expense or injury including death that I may suffer, or that my next of kin may suffer as a result of my participation in wilderness activities, DUE TO ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR BREACH OF ANY STATUTORY OR OTHER DUTY OF CARE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES, AND FURTHER INCLUDING THE FAILURE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT ME FROM THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS OF WILDERNESS ACTIVITIES REFERRED TO ABOVE;

In short, I cannot sue the Releasees for any reason I may receive an injury and if I do, I cannot collect any money.

 

4. This Agreement shall be effective and binding upon my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators, assigns and representatives, in the event of my death or incapacity;

 

5. This Agreement and any rights, duties, and obligations as between the parties to this Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted solely in accordance with the laws of the State of New Hampshire and no other jurisdiction; and

 

6. Any litigation involving the parties to this Agreement shall be brought solely within the State of New Hampshire and shall be within the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of the State of New Hampshire. In entering into this Agreement I am not relying on any oral or written representations or statements made by the Releasees with respect to the safety of wilderness activities, other than what is set forth in this Agreement;

 

7. As liquidated damages, I agree that if the Releasees are forced to defend any action, lawsuit or litigation or for breach of the covenant not to sue, by myself, my executors, or my heirs, on my family's or my behalf, my heirs or executors and I agree to pay the Releasees’ legal costs and attorney fees if they successfully defend such action, lawsuit or litigation. Should any sentence, clause, paragraph, or part of this agreement be declared unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining parts or paragraphs shall remain in full force and effect. An electronically signed and/or photocopy of this Agreement can be used as if it was an original.
