RENTAL RELEASE OF LIABILITY
Liability Release, Acknowledgment of Personal Information & Equipment Instructions, and Equipment Rental
Otis Ridge Ski Area LLC, Otis Ridge Properties LLC, as well as its officers, officials, directors, shareholders, affiliates, agents, representatives, affiliated companies, and employees (hereinafter, Otis Ridge) Liability Release, Waiver of Claims and Rental Agreement

159 Monterey Road

I have accurately represented the above listed information and it is true and correct. I will not use any of the equipment to be provided to me during this transaction until I have received instruction on its use and I fully understand its use and function. I agree to verify that the visual indicator settings to be recorded on this form for downhill ski equipment agree with the number appearing in the visual indicator windows of the equipment to be listed on this form.
I accept for use AS IS the equipment 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 of any equipment rented under this form but not returned to the Otis Ridge rental facility. I agree to return all rental equipment by the agreed date.
I understand that the binding system cannot guarantee the user’s safety. In downhill skiing, and skiboarding with ski boards equipped with release bindings, 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 with skiboards, snowblading, 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 a helmet designed for recreational snow sports use will help reduce the risk of some type 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 acknowledge that skiing and snowboarding and other alpine activities, like many other sports, are hazardous, requiring the deliberate control and good judgment of the participant. These activities contain inherent risks including, but not limited to, the risks of personal injury, death, damages and/or property damage which may be caused by loading, riding, falling from, and unloading from ski lifts/chairlifts, variations in terrain, slope design, weather conditions, surface or sub-surface snow, ice, bare spots or areas of thin cover, moguls, jumps, ruts, bumps, roads, catwalks, other persons using the facilities, rocks, forest growth, debris, branches, trees, roots, stumps or other natural objects or man-made objects such as snowmobiles, snow machines, snow grooming equipment, signs, fence posts and on and off trail snowmaking equipment as well as many other hazards, that are incidental to the provision and/or maintenance of Otis Ridge.
I acknowledge that falls, injuries and collisions with other skiers/riders are a common occurrence in these activities. I AGREE TO RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS OTIS RIDGE, ITS EMPLOYEES, OWNERS, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS AND THE EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS AND DISTRIBUTORS OF THIS EQUIPMENT (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 and damage related in any way to the use of this equipment. This agreement is governed by the applicable law of the state of Massachusetts. If any provision of this agreement is determined to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall be given full force and effect.
I, THE UNDERSIGNED, HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS EQUIPMENT RENTAL & LIABILITY RELEASE AGREEMENT AND I AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL TERMS & CONDITIONS. If equipment user is a minor, I verify that I have the authority to enter into this agreement on behalf of the equipment user.

All participants in the Otis Ridge Ski Area’s programs are expected to ski courteously, safely and under control at all times. Failure to comply will result in removal from the program with no refund.
● Pillars of respect will be upheld at Otis Ridge. Failure to comply will result in removal from the program with no refund.
● All programs must be prepaid. No refunds will be issued for any reason.
● All program participants will be issued an ID/pass which is your lift ticket and must be worn each week. Lost ID cards will be replaced for a $5 fee. If you forget your ID there may be a $2 charge for a ticket for the day.
● Parents are responsible for their children outside of lesson time.
● Equipment must be returned to the rental shop with the boots buckled.
● Program partcipants in any program are entitled to a discounted lift ticket rates on non-program days – see your registration info for this season’s discount. You must present your program ID to receive the discount. There is no discount on rental equipment.
Program registrations are not transferable (unless the change is approved BEFORE the first day of the program). If for some reason you cancel your registration before the first day of the program, there will be a $25 administrative cancellation fee per transaction. After the program starts, there will be no refunds made. In the case of an injury or illness that will prevent the registrant from completing the program, a credit (not a refund) will be issued when we receive a doctor's letter stating that the registrant is unable to participate in the program..
The Ridge does not as a general rule cancel programs because of the weather – if it’s too hot, too cold, raining, snowing, etc. The program runs as long as we have appropriate terrain open that can be skied safely. In the rare event that a day has to be canceled, you will receive an email and there will be a make-up night at the end of the program. If you choose not to come because of the weather, you will not be entitled to a make-up..
SNOWSPORTS RESPONSIBILITY CODE
Skiing and snowboarding can be enjoyed in many ways. At areas, you may see people using alpine skis, snowboards, telemark skis, cross country skis, and other specialized equipment, such as that used by the disabled. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below, and share with other skiers and riders the responsibility for a great skiing experience.
● Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
● People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
● You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
● Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
● Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
● Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
● Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
Know the code. It's your responsibility.
Note* This is a partial list. Be safety conscious.
I have had sufficient opportunity to read the Snowsports Waiver and Release of Liability, Program Guidelines, Refund and Cancellation Policies, Snowsports Responsibility Code. I have read and understood them, and I agree to be bound by their terms. I am releasing Otis Ridge from all claims.
