THE BRIDGER BOWL FOUNDATION
2019-2020 SKI SEASON
WARNING, NOTIFICATION OF RISKS
***** PLEASE READ CAREFULLY *****
Parent or Guardian signature is required for participants under 18 years old..
I hereby voluntarily request to participate or to have my minor child participate in the Ride and Seek Fundraiser for The Bridger Bowl Foundation conducted at Bridger Bowl. I understand the Fundraiser consists of skiing to check points around the mountain. I understand there are inherent dangers and risks that are part of the sport including: changing weather conditions; snow conditions as they exist or as they may change, including ice, hardpack, powder, packed powder, wind pack, corn snow, crust, slush, cut-up snow, and machine- made snow of any depth or accumulation, including but not limited to any depth or accumulation around or near trees or snowmaking equipment; avalanches, except on open, machine-groomed ski trails; collisions with natural surface or subsurface conditions, such as bare spots, forest growth, rocks, stumps, streambeds, cliffs, trees, and other natural objects; collisions with lift towers, signs, posts, fences, enclosures, hydrants, waterpipes, or other artificial structures and their components; variations in steepness or terrain, whether natural or the result of slope design, snowmaking, or snow grooming operations, including but not limited to roads, freestyle terrain, ski jumps, catwalks and other terrain modifications; collisions with clearly visible or plainly marked equipment, including but not limited to lift equipment, snowmaking equipment, snow grooming equipment, trail maintenance equipment, and snowmobiles, whether or not the equipment is moving; collisions with other skiers; the failure of a skier to ski within that skier’s ability; skiing in a closed area or skiing outside the ski area boundary as designated on the ski area trail map; and restricted visibility caused by snow, wind, fog, sun, or darkness.
Warning: Increased Risk of Avalanche. Avalanche hazard reduction measures within the ski area boundaries help reduce the risk of avalanches, but can not eliminate the possibility of an avalanche occurring in avalanche prone areas and runout zones open for skiing. I acknowledge the existence of these risks and accept such risks on behalf of myself and/or my minor child.
I am aware that natural and man-made obstacles and hazards exist. Fencing, equipment covers, signs, rope lines and other marking devices may be in place during the event 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.
With full knowledge and understanding of the risk of severe injury and death, 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 use and reproduction, without compensation, of all photos or other visual representations made of the participant in connection with this event.
By signing this document you may be waiving your legal right to a jury trial to hold the provider legally responsible for any injuries or damages resulting from risks inherent in the sport or recreational opportunity or for any injuries or damages you may suffer due to the providers ordinary negligence that are the result of the provider’s failure to exercise reasonable care.
If I am signing on behalf of a minor, I accept full responsibility for all medical expenses or liability incurred as a result of the minor’s actions or participation in this race or competition and agree to release, hold harmless, and indemnify Bridger Bowl Inc. for any such expenses. I agree to explain the safety items and risks outlined above to my minor child.
I have carefully read this Warning, Notification of Risks, understand it, and accept its terms.
