In consideration of permission to participate in Snowbird’s Mountain School at Snowbird every participant and every parent or guardian of a minor must read this entire Agreement and sign at the end indicating that the parent or guardian acknowledges that they have discussed the risks associated with Mountain Sports Activities with the participant, and request that the minor be allowed to participate in Mountain Sports Activities at Snowbird acknowledging that all parties understand and assume these risks.
"I understand and acknowledge that skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, swimming, rock climbing, yoga, ropes course initiatives, slack lining, dry land training, camping, use of climbing walls, zip lines, mountain coasters and alpine slides, and any other alpine activities, including the use of lifts, involve many risks, dangers, and hazards, including, but not limited to changing weather and snow conditions; variations in terrain; grooming; ice; avalanches; snow immersion; deep snow; rocks; trees and tree wells; streams; ditches; collisions with natural or man-made objects which may or may not be marked; impact with lift towers and or other structures and their components; collisions with other skiers; terrain features; exceeding ones skiing/riding ability; jumping; falling; slick or uneven walking surfaces; equipment failures and the possibility of becoming lost or separated from the class or instructor. I understand that snowmaking and grooming activities and equipment, and snowmobiles may be encountered at any time. I assume the risk of loading, riding and unloading the ski lifts. I acknowledge that my child may ride a chairlift with other children. I recognize that falls and collisions occur and injuries are a common and ordinary occurrence of the activities. I further understand that minor injuries can become life threatening when they occur far away from rescue personnel or when alone. I understand that it could take a significant amount of time for rescue personnel to locate and reach an injured person. I understand there may be transportation by use of a snowmobile or other resort vehicle including shuttle busses, and use of terrain features as part of the mountain school experience.
I have made a voluntary choice to participate in these activities despite the risks, dangers, and hazards that these activities present. I understand the philosophy of Snowbird Mountain School is to increase your enjoyment by increasing your skill level. This may be accomplished by increasing the difficulty of skills, terrain and instruction. In consideration of my being permitted to ski, snowboard, or participate in other alpine activities at Snowbird Resort, I expressly and unconditionally agree to assume all risk of injury and death which might be associated with or result from my participation in these activities."
I understand that Snowbird may take photographs of mountain school activities at any time, and I agree that my likeness or that of my child may be used exclusively by Snowbird Resort for the purpose of publicity, public relations, social media sharing or other commercial purposes without compensation and without restriction as to frequency or duration.
I also understand that instructors may need to change equipment through the Snowbird rental shop to enhance the experience of my child(ren). These changes will be made by certified rental technicians, and will be logged into our system under the authorization of the child’s instructor. I authorize Snowbird to exchange personal equipment for proper fit and use that is acceptable to the activity if it is determined by Snowbird the equipment does not meet performance standards.
In the event that I cannot be readily contacted, I give my permission for my child to receive immediate medical attention if needed during participation in Snowbird’s programs. I agree to pay all costs associated with such medical care and related transportation for the child and to indemnify and hold Snowbird Resort LLC, Snowbird Operations LLC, Snowbird Holdings LLC, it’s representatives, agents, affiliates, officers, directors, and employees harmless for any costs incurred therein.
In consideration of my acceptance in Snowbird Mountain School programs, I also agree to indemnify and hold Snowbird Corporation harmless from any and all loss and expense including attorney fees and other legal expense incurred by reason of claims or liability for claims relating to participation in Snowbird’s programs, regardless of whether such claims are alleged to have arisen in whole or in part due to negligence or any grounds of legal liability, including violation of any duty imposed by a statute, ordinance or regulation, on the part of Snowbird Resort LLC, Snowbird Operations LLC, and Snowbird Holdings LLC, it's representatives, agents, affiliates, officers, directors, and employees.
To the extent any portion of this Agreement is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. Any legal action will be brought in Summit County, Utah and Utah law will govern. I understand and agree that this Agreement fully binds my successors-in-interest, assigns, heirs, next of kin, and Estate.
