COMPETITION FORMAT: DUAL GS COURSE
I agree and understand that I and/or my minor child shall conduct a thorough visual inspection of the course and the adjacent area before using the course for any training, practice or competition. I will immediately notify the Event Staff of any safety concerns I may have. I am aware natural and man-made obstacles exist. Fencing, equipment covers, signs, rope lines and other marking devices may be in place and mark some, but not all of the potential obstacles or hazards. These markers will not prevent injury. I understand it is my/my child’s responsibility to stay away from marked areas. I acknowledge the existence of these risks and accept such risks whether they are marked or unmarked. By my use of the course, I assume all risks, including the conditions of the course and the adjacent area.
I am aware and understand the difficulty and risk may be increased by the manner in which the course is used by the participant, including but not limited to; speed, angle, ability and other factors controlled by the participant. I understand I should wear appropriate safety equipment as established by common safety practices for alpine ski racing. The use of a helmet is recommended. Bridger Bowl Inc.

With full knowledge and understanding of the risk of severe injury and death involved in competitive skiing and training, I freely and voluntarily accept and fully assume the risk that I or my minor child may suffer temporary, permanent or even fatal injuries.
I consent to the use and reproduction, without compensation, of all photos or other visual representations made of the competitor in connection with this event.
