I understand that the binding system cannot guarantee the user's safety. In downhill skiing, and skiboarding with skiboards equipped with release bindings, this binding system will not release at all times or under all circumstances where release may prevent injury or death, nor is it possible to predict every situation in which it will release. In snowboarding, cross-country skiing, skiboarding with skiboards equipped with non-release bindings, snowshoeing and other sports utilizing equipment with non-release bindings, the binding system will not ordinarily release during use; these bindings are not designed to relate as a result of forces generated during ordinary operation.
I understand that the sports of skiing, snowboarding, skiboarding, snowshoeing and other sports (collectively "RECREATIONAL SNOW SPORTS") involve inherent and other risks of INJURY and DEATH. I voluntarily agree to expressly assume all risks of injury or death that may result from these RECREATIONAL SNOW SPORTS, or which relate in any way to the use of this equipment.
I understand that a helmet designed for RECREATIONAL SNOW SPORTS use will help reduce risk of some types of injuries to the user at slower speeds. I recognize that serious injury or death can result from both low and high energy impacts, even when a helmet is worn.
I AGREE TO RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS the facility servicing this equipment, its employees, owners, affiliates, agents, officers, directors, and the equipment manufacturers and distributors and their successors in interest (collectively "PROVIDERS"), from all liability for injury, death, property loss and damage which results from the equipment user’s participation in the RECREATIONAL SNOW SPORTS for which the equipment is provided, or which is related in any way to the use of this equipment, including all liability which results from the NEGLIGENCE of PROVIDERS, or any other person or cause.
I further agree to defend and indemnify PROVIDERS for any loss or damage, including any that results from claims or lawsuits for personal injury, death and property loss and damage in any way to the use of this equipment.
This agreement is governed by the applicable law of this state or province. If any provision of this agreement is determined to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall be given full force and effect.
