I hereby voluntarily request to participate in the Blacktail Mountain Ski Area Snow Sports program. I understand there are inherent dangers and risks of skiing that are part of the sport including but not limited to: changing weather conditions; snow conditions as they exist or as they may change, including ice, hard-pack, powder, packed powder, wind pack, corn snow, crust, slush, and cut-up snow; collisions with lift towers, signs, posts, fences, enclosures, or other artificial structures and their components; variations in steepness or terrain, whether natural, or the result of slope design, or 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 and snowmobiles. Whether or not the equipment is moving; collisions with other skiers, the failure of a skier to ski within that skiers 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. I am aware that 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 child’s responsibility to stay away from marked areas. I acknowledge the existence of these risks and accept such risks on behalf of myself and/ my minor child.
I am aware that there are inherent and other risks for persons who are in the process of approaching, loading, unloading and departing from aerial chairlifts. I understand that all persons who use an aerial chairlift shall be presumed to have sufficient ability and physical dexterity or personal assistance to load, ride, unload and be evacuated from the aerial chairlift safely.
I am aware that skiing and using aerial chairlifts may result in serious injury, death, property damage and economic loss from these risks and I voluntarily accept such risks on behalf of myself and or my minor child. I agree that my child shall obey “Your Responsibility Code” and Montana State Law, Section 23-2-736, MCA. Duties of a Skier.
I consent to the use and reproduction, without compensation of all photos or visual representation made of the participant in connection with this program. I am aware that my child may be riding the chairlift alone.
If a helmet is worn, I understand that no headgear can protect against all foreseeable impacts, that skiing and snowboarding can expose the user to forces which exceed the limits of protection offered by this helmet, that helmets do not guard against injury to the neck, spine, face or any other part of the body, and that these features are inherent risks of using this equipment. Helmets must be properly fitted to each user, and I agree that this helmet has been properly fitted by the provider. I warrant that the helmet is comfortably snug and that when I fasten the chin strap and shake my head there is no significant movement of the helmet, I agree that if the helmet is damaged or involved in any kind of accident, I will stop using it immediately, return it to the shop and report eh accident or damage.
ON BEHALF OF MYSELF AND OR MY MINOR CHILD NAMED ON THIS REGISTRATION, I HEREBY RELEASE, HOLD HARMLESS, AND INDEMNIFY BLACKTAIL MOUNTAIN SKI AREA, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR DAMAGE, ECONOMIC LOSS, PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH RESULTING FROM THE RISKS DESCRIBED HEREIN, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH RISKS RESULT FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF BLACKTAIL MOUNTAIN SKI AREA, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, AND DIRECTORS.
