Patron Responsibility

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Acceptance of this ticket constitutes a contract. The conditions of the contract are set forth below on this ticket and will prevent or restrict your ability to sue Ski Shawnee, Inc.

Skiing, boarding, snow tubing and other on-snow sports, including the use of lifts, are dangerous sports with inherent and other risks. These risks include but are not limited to rocks, trees and other forms of forest growth or debris (above or below the surface), bare spots, lift towers, utility lines, poles and guy wires, snowmaking equipment and component parts, trail fences and control nets and the absence of such fences and nets, and other forms of natural or man-made obstacles on and/or off designated trails, as well as collisions with equipment, vehicles, obstacles or other participants, trail conditions vary constantly because of weather changes and skier use. These are some of the risks of skiing, boarding and snow tubing. All of the inherent and other risks of skiing, boarding and snow tubing present the risk of serious and/or fatal injury.

RELEASE AGREEMENT FOR SKI OR SNOWBOARD RENTERS

I agree upon behalf of the user I am representing to accept for use AS IS all equipment to be provided for the duration of this multi-visit program and agree to accept full financial responsibility for the care of the equipment while it is in the user’s possession. I will be responsible for the replacement at full value of any equipment rented under this form, but not returned to the rental facility. I agree that all rental equipment will be returned by the agreed date.

I understand that the binding system cannot guarantee the user’s safety. In downhill skiing, the 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, skiboarding and other sports utilizing equipment with non-release bindings, the binding system will not ordinarily release during use; these bindings are not designed to release as a result of forces generated during ordinary operation.

IN CONSIDERATION OF USING SKI SHAWNEE, INC.'S FACILITIES, THE PURCHASER OR USER OF THIS TICKET AGREES TO ACCEPT THE RISKS OF SKIING, BOARDING AND SNOWTUBING AND AGREES NOT TO SUE SKI SHAWNEE, INC. OR ITS EMPLOYEES IF HURT WHILE USING THE FACILITIES REGARDLESS OF ANY NEGLIGENCE EVEN IF I CONTEND THAT SUCH INJURIES ARE THE RESULT OF NEGLIGENCE, INCLUDING GROSS NEGLIGENCE, OR ANY OTHER IMPROPER CONDUCT FOR WHICH A RELEASE IS NOT CONTRARY TO PUBLIC POLICY, ON THE PART OF SKI SHAWNEE, INC.

I agree that all disputes arising under this contract and/or from my use of the facilities at Shawnee Mountain shall be litigated exclusively in the Court of Common Pleas of Monroe County or the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

The purchaser or user of the ticket voluntarily assumes the risks of injury while participating in these sports.

I Agree
