Equipment Rental and Liability Agreement
I accept for use AS IS the equipment to be listed on this form, and accept full financial responsibility for the care of the equipment while it is in my possession. I will be responsible for the replacement at full value, up to full retail price, for any equipment rented to me under this form, but not returned to this shop in good condition. Rental product must be returned before the shop closes or by 9 a.m. the following morning to avoid daily rental charges. I have read and agreed to these terms. I agree to return all leased equipment by the agreed upon date of May 31,
. Lease equipment returned late will incur additional charges equal to twice the initial lease rate.
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, cross-country skiing, skiboarding, 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 release 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 and 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 the 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 ski/snowboard shop, 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 or damage related 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.
