WARNING, NOTIFICATION OF RISKS
***** PLEASE READ CAREFULLY *****
I hereby voluntarily request to have my minor child participate in a Bridger Bowl Snowsports School Multi-Week
Program. I understand there are inherent dangers and risks of skiing 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. 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/or my
minor child whether they are marked or unmarked.
Warning, 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 this risk and
accept such risk on behalf of myself and/or my minor child.
I am aware that my child may be riding the chair lift alone.
I am aware that there are inherent and other risks or dangers for those who are in the process of
approaching, loading, riding, unloading and departing from chair lifts, tows and conveyors.
All passengers who use a chair lift, tow or conveyor shall be responsible for their own loading,
riding and unloading. I understand that all persons who use a chair lift, tow or conveyor shall be
presumed to have sufficient ability, physical dexterity and/or personal assistance to negotiate and
be evacuated safely.
I am aware that skiing and using aerial chair lifts, tows and conveyors may result in loss,
damage, expense or injury (including death,)from these risks and I voluntarily accept such risks
on behalf of myself and/or my minor child.
I understand that my child shall obey “Your Responsibility Code,” Bridger Bowl Mountain Regulations,
and Montana State Law, Duties of a Skier.
I consent to the commercial use and reproduction, without compensation, of any photos or
visual representation taken of my minor child while using the facilities, slopes and trails
at Bridger Bowl.
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 my minor child’s actions or participation in this program and
agree to release, hold harmless and indemnify Bridger Bowl Inc. for any such expenses.
I agree to explain the risks and safety items outlined in this agreement to my minor child including
“Your Responsibility Code,” Bridger Bowl Mountain Regulations and Montana State Law.
