SNOWMOBILE FEDERATION, RVL PROPERTY Co ULC, HIS MAJESTY THE KING IN RIGHT OF THE PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA and their parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, any booking agencies, respective directors, officers, employees, guides, agents, independent contractors, subcontractors, representatives, shareholders, successors and other guests (all of whom to be herein collectively referred to as the “Releasees”).

DEFINITION: In this Release Agreement, the term “Snowmobiling” shall include all activities, services, events and use of facilities and equipment provided, arranged, organized, conducted, sponsored or authorized by the Releasees, including but not limited to: use or operation of snowmobiles and snow bikes; guided tours; rentals; orientation training and instructional courses, seminars and sessions; hiking; sightseeing; transportation; travel to and from the trail head or marshalling areas; accommodation & recreational activities in addition to driving snowmobiles and snow bikes; loading, unloading and all other movement around snowmobiles and snow bikes; back country travel and all other activities in the alpine or wilderness areas. The term ‘Negligence’ means the failure of one or more of the employees or the Operators to take proper care for your safety.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT – SNOWMOBILING SAFETY:  I acknowledge that I have been advised to wear an approved helmet while Snowmobiling. I will wear any safety equipment suggested by the Releasees and I will be wholly and solely liable for any injury, damages and/or expenses that are caused, contributed to or are in any way related to my failure to wear, or properly wear safety equipment. 

The physical exertion required of Snowmobiling and the forces exerted on the body can activate or aggravate pre-existing physical injuries or conditions. I have been advised to obtain medical advice if I know or suspect that my physical condition may be incompatible with Snowmobiling. I acknowledge that participants must not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol while Snowmobiling.

AVALANCHE GEAR: When booking a private guide you are required to have your own Avalanche Gear whilst riding with our guides, if not then we can rent it to you. Knowledge of how to use the equipment is also essential, if not known then it is your responsibility to request instruction on how to. Guides have the right to refuse to provide services to persons that do not adhere to our Terms and Conditions, or deemed by the Guide to be unsafe.

ASSUMPTION OF RISKS: I am aware that Snowmobiling, touring, renting a machine and, or, the associated activities involved with the said activities, exposes me to many risks, hazards and dangers (both known and unknown). Risks include but not limited to

a)     Avalanches: Avalanches frequently occur, sometimes caused by natural forces, and other times by other forces such as snowmobilers or snow bikes, skiers, landslides, falling debris such as rocks, wood, trees, cornices, or other mechanical devices. The Releasees cannot predict whether the terrain being travelled is safe for travel, or if an avalanche may occur;

b)     Natural Hazards: The terrain over which I will travel has many hidden and unforeseen natural dangers such as trees, tree wells and tree stumps, creeks, rocks, forest deadfall, depressions, crevasses, cliffs, water ruts, wet, slippery, loose or uneven terrain, and variableweather conditions which may be extreme and can change rapidly without warning;

c)     Man-made Hazards: The terrain over which I will travel may also contain man-made hazards and risks, such as fences, logging debris, logging equipment, artificial road barriers, water bars, as well as other motorized snowmobilers, snow bikes, snowcats, grooming devices and other man-made vehicles and devices. This also includes impact or collision with other machines/persons and falls from the machines,

d)     Lost: Participants may become lost or separated from their party or guide. Communications in the terrain over which I will be travelling will be difficult and in the event of an accident, rescue and/or medical treatment may be seriously delayed, or not available. Weather conditions may be extreme, and capable of changing rapidly, without notice, making travel difficult and hazardous;

e)     Negligence: I understand death or injury may result from negligence on behalf of other machine operators/persons and the Releasees; 

f)      Passengers: have an increased risk of bodily harm or death;

g)     Hiking/Walking: Can be very dangerous and painful if fall or trip, over-exertion can cause heart attacks and other medical complications. Cliffs and fast water/waterfalls/icefalls are found throughout the operating areas.

I acknowledge and accept that the Releasees and their staff may fail to predict whether the terrain over which I will travel is safe for the activities and services or may fail to predict or identify the presence of any of the natural or man-made hazards, including but not limited to those identified above. 

I am aware and accept all risks, hazards and dangers to which I may be exposed and acknowledge the possibility that I may suffer loss resulting therefrom. I freely accept and fully assume all such risks, dangers and hazards and the possibility of personal injury, death, illness, property damage or property loss that may result from the risks inherent  or may result from the negligence or faults of the Releasees. I am participating in the tour, and, or rental as provided by the Releasees entirely at my own risk.  

I further agree to act responsibly and be prudent in said activities which includes using common sense, following and obeying the guides and guide instructions, doing regular check ups and inspections of vehicle and or other equipment material provided as to prevent any mishap or accident. I agree to not use any equipment or participate in any tour under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication, extreme fatigue or jetlag and cause no wilful damage. I am aware I do not have to ride in terrain or conditions I am not comfortable with or capable of and will stop my vehicle and alert my guides of such.



MEDICAL CONDITIONS:  I have no known medical conditions that could significantly affect my capabilities of riding/renting a machine.  Please list all allergies, medication and or health conditions that could affect your riding ability or the guide should be aware of.  You are required to inform the Releasees prior to trip departure of any changes in your medical conditions: 

I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury, EMS transport and, or, sled rescue evacuation that may arise while involved in the said activities, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury and, or, rescue evacuation myself.  I acknowledge that in the event of an accident, rescue and medical treatment may not be immediately available.  I further certify that I am willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have.
