ASSUMPTION OF RISKS
I understand and EXPRESSLY AGREE to the fact that skiing in its various forms is an inherently hazardous sport that has many dangers and risks. I realize that injuries are common and ordinary occurrences of this sport. I acknowledge that SKI RACING AND TRAINING and related activities are ESPECIALLY HAZARDOUS activities and GREATLY INCREASE THE RISKS of skiing and that I have made a voluntary choice to participate in those activities myself or to allow my child(ren) to do so despite the risks they present. I recognize that the risks associated with participating in ski racing, training, and competing include, but are not limited to, the fact that the racer will be traveling at high speed, that collisions and falls are a probability. Trail and racecourse conditions vary constantly because of weather changes and skier use and even the best equipment and coaching cannot prevent injury. Natural and manmade obstacles, including other skiers, may exist and collisions do occur. I also understand that my child will be using SKI LIFTS WITHOUT A COACH OR OTHER ADULT PRESENT. I understand and acknowledge that this list is not complete or exhaustive and that other risks, known or unknown, identified or unidentified, may also result in injury, death, illness, or damage to my property. Accordingly, I understand that the child must control him or herself at all times.
