Terms of Service

RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT Please read carefully before signing.

I hereby state that I wish to participate in courses and/or activities offered by the Spokane Mountaineers, a volunteer nonprofit corporation. Such activities may include courses, outdoor sporting activities and events, social events, use of the Chalet or other Spokane Mountaineers property, and any activity sponsored or provided by the Spokane Mountaineers. I understand that my participation in Spokane Mountaineers activities may involve certain dangers, including, but not limited to, the hazards of traveling in mountainous terrain; accidents or illnesses in remote places without medical care or facilities; hazards created by the forces of nature; the inherent dangers involved in participating in sports, recreation, and social activities; and the actions of participants and other persons, including negligence. I knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks of injury, death, property damage, or other damages arising out of my participation in any Spokane Mountaineers activity or use of Spokane Mountaineers property. It is the responsibility of each individual to have his or her own first-aid kit and appropriate level of first-aid training. Leaders do not take responsibility for group first aid.

I recognize that the Spokane Mountaineers would not be able to operate successfully and sponsor activities or allow the use of its property without obtaining a release of liability from its members and participants. In consideration of the right to participate in activities offered by the Spokane Mountaineers or any of its directors, officers, leaders, instructors, or members, I hereby agree to RELEASE, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS the Spokane Mountaineers, its directors, officers, leaders, instructors, and members from any claims resulting from any loss or damage suffered by me or any family member I bring on a Spokane Mountaineers activity.

I realize that Spokane Mountaineers activities do not include transportation to and from an activity. I agree that I am solely responsible for my own transportation and that the Spokane Mountaineers are not liable for any accident, injury, or damage that may arise during transportation.

I certify that I am 18 years of age or older or that I am participating in a Spokane Mountaineers activity with the permission of a parent or guardian who has signed below. I certify that I have no physical limitation or medical condition that would impair my ability to participate fully and safely in Spokane Mountaineers activities. I agree to inform the activity leader of any conditions that may have any effect so that a determination can be made as to the proper course of action. I have signed this agreement freely and voluntarily, with full understanding of the contents of the agreement and the risks that I am assuming. I understand this is an agreement not to sue the Spokane Mountaineers. If I am signing on behalf of a minor, in addition to the above, I also agree to RELEASE, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS the Spokane Mountaineers, its directors, officers, leaders, instructors, and members for any claims of the minor. I agree to be responsible for any medical expenses incurred by the minor.

The terms of this agreement bind me, my family, heirs, executors, personal representatives, and administrators.
