ASSUMPTION OF RISKS
I am aware that skiing and, snowboarding involve risks, dangers and hazards and that injuries are a common and ordinary occurrence of these sports.
SKIING I understand that the ski boot/binding system may not release during every fall or may release unexpectedly. The ski boot/binding system is no guarantee that the user will not be injured.
SNOWBOARDING I understand that the boot/binding system in not designed or intended to release and will not release under normal circumstances. I understand that as the boot/binding system is a non-release system, this system will not reduce the risk of injury during a fall and will increase the risk of not surviving an avalanche.
HELMETS I understand that a helmet designed for RECREATIONAL SNOW SPORTS use will help reduce the risk of some types of injuries to the user at slower speeds. I recognise that serious injury or death can result from both low and high energy impacts, even when a helmet is worn.
I FREELY ACCEPT AND FULLY ASSUME ALL RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF THE EQUIPMENT.
