ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF DANGERS AND RISKS

I acknowledge and accept all dangers and risks associated with the Activities, including the use of Equipment, whether or not expressly listed in this Agreement, whether known or unknown to me, or whether or not inherent risks of the Activities, including the use of Equipment. UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTING ALL DANGERS AND RISKS, I VOLUNTARILY CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING THE USE OF EQUIPMENT, OR VOLUNTARILY CHOOSE TO ALLOW ANY RELEASOR TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING THE USE OF EQUIPMENT.
I understand, accept and agree that the Activities involve numerous dangers and risks including unpredictable or variable snow or weather conditions; extreme cold; frostbite; hypothermia; high elevation; wildlife and domestic animal encounters; exposure to the elements; lack of shelter; trees, stumps, branches, and limbs; tree wells; marked and unmarked obstacles; natural or artificial features, objects, or debris; snow immersion; deep snow conditions; slush; ice; bare spots; unstable ice and snow (including but not limited to snow slides and avalanches); changes or variations in terrain or snow conditions; surface and subsurface conditions; open water hazards; rugged mountainous terrain; cliffs; ravines; collisions with other skiers, snowboarders and participants, snowmobiles, snowmaking and snow-grooming equipment or other vehicles, property or structures; operation of snowmaking equipment which may create blind spots or areas of reduced visibility; acts of other skiers, snowboarders and participants; carelessness and misjudgments on the part of other participants, Releasors, or Resort staff, including failure to follow applicable rules, policies and procedures; use of trams, gondolas, chairlifts, rope or other tows, moving carpets, or any other conveyance which may involve entanglement with equipment, objects, or other skiers, snowboarders, participants, or other individuals, errors in loading/unloading, and equipment malfunction or breakdown; slick or uneven walking surfaces.
I understand, affirm and agree that: (i) I have the physical fitness and dexterity and the knowledge required to safely load, ride and unload the trams, gondolas, chairlifts, rope or other tows, moving carpets or any other conveyances; (ii) falls, collisions and injuries are a common and ordinary occurrence of the Activities; (iii) I shall obey all signs, markings, ropes and warnings posted at the Resort and all applicable laws and regulations; (iv) entering or skiing or snowboarding in a “CLOSED” area may be illegal and/or result in confiscation, revocation or suspension of the Pass or lift ticket; (v) skiing or snowboarding off of designated trails may be more dangerous to me and others than skiing or snowboarding on designated trails; (vi) there are risks involved in decision-making and conduct of others including risks involved with rescue operations and medical care conducted or provided by Resort staff or third parties inside or outside of Resort boundaries, risks associated with decision-making by Resort staff to open and close terrain, and the risk that Resort staff may misjudge weather, trail or snow conditions, route/terrain selection, or limitations of Releasor’s abilities that may make a certain aspect of the Activity inappropriate for the Releasor; and (vii) I will exercise caution around and will avoid snowmobiles, sno-cats, snowmaking and snow-grooming equipment, vehicles, structures, signs, immovable objects or other property that I may encounter at any time. Further, I accept the responsibility to maintain deliberate and conscious control and to take precautions to avoid hazards at all times while skiing, snowboarding or participating in other Activities.
If applicable, I agree to read to, or to have Minor or other Releasors read, and to explain to Minor or other Releasors, if necessary, all posted Resort policies, signs, markings, and warnings including instructions on the use of trams, gondolas, chairlifts, rope or other tows, moving carpets or any other conveyances.
I REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ME OR ANY RELEASOR ONLINE OR TO RESORT STAFF, INCLUDING HEIGHT, WEIGHT, AGE, EXPERIENCE LEVEL AND SKIER/RIDER TYPE CLASSIFICATION WILL BE ACCURATE AND COMPLETE.
I agree to inspect all Equipment before use. I understand, accept and agree that I may not be available or present when my Equipment is fitted and adjusted and I waive the opportunity to verify the helmet size and fit and binding settings and I hereby authorize Resort staff to fit the helmet size and set the binding settings. I understand, accept and agree that, although I may be wearing a helmet, a helmet cannot guarantee my safety and no helmet can protect the wearer against all potential head injuries or prevent injury to the wearer’s face, neck or spinal cord. I accept for use “AS IS” and without any warranty express or implied any Equipment I use for an Activity and to return either before use or promptly after discovery, for replacement or repair, any Equipment believed by me to be damaged or defective in any way or requiring adjustment. I accept full responsibility for the care of the Equipment used for an Activity and agree that I will be responsible for the replacement at full retail value of any Equipment damaged or not returned. I understand and agree that bindings may not release, or may release, in all situations where release, or non-release, may prevent injury and therefore bindings cannot guarantee my safety. I understand that undesired release or non-release are inherent risks of using any binding system. In snowboarding, cross-country, telemark skiing, snowshoeing, snowblading, ski boarding with skiboards or any other Equipment not equipped with release bindings, I understand, accept and agree that the binding system may not be designed to, and therefore will not ordinarily, release during use.
I understand, accept and agree that if I participate in ski and snowboard lessons at a Resort, (a) I have the sufficient mental, emotional and physical stamina to participate in the Activity; (b) I have the responsibility to follow the instructions of Resort staff; (c) I have the responsibility to obey all signs, markings and warnings posted at the Resort, comply with Resort policies, and act in a safe manner; (d) I should or may be required to wear a protective helmet; (e) I am responsible for disclosing to Resort staff any pre-existing medical condition that may affect my ability to participate in the Activities; and (f) that Resort staff cannot at all times maintain close enough visibility of or proximity to me to intervene, for any reasons including when using trams, gondolas, chairlifts, rope or other tows, moving carpets or any other conveyances on my own or with other participants.

If I participate in Events, I understand, accept and agree that (a) I assume all dangers and risks associated with the Event and training course(s) including their features, layout, location, steepness, length, obstacles, and difficulty level and (b) I am solely responsible for inspecting the features, layout and other aspects of the Event and training course(s) prior to use and determining in my sole discretion whether I am comfortable with and fit for participating in the Event.
If I volunteer to assist with the preparation, administration, management or governance of an Activity, I understand, accept and agree that (a) I am not an employee of the Resort, regardless of any non-cash remuneration for time and services which I may receive; (b) I am not covered by Workers’ Compensationnor entitled to any benefits under Workers’ Compensation law, except for those jurisdictions in which I would be covered as a matter of law; and (c) I am hereby advised to obtain my own medical coverage for my volunteer position.
