  • I have asked to rent the equipment listed on this form from Mountain Works, Inc., and accept full financial responsibility for the proper use, care, treatment, and return of this equipment. I certify that I will be the user of the equipment, and have accurately provided my contact information. I agree to pay for any equipment returned wet, unclean, or damaged as follows:

    • Tents, sleeping bags, and backpacks if returned wet - $5.00 per item; dirty $10.00 per item; wet and dirty $15.00 per item.
    • Any equipment which is not returned or returned damaged or missing in part will be repaired or replaced at market rates at my expense.
  • In asking to rent the equipment, I understand that the equipment can be used in mountaineering and outdoor activities, including but not limited to hiking, backpacking, climbing, glissading, skiing, nordic, and snowshoeing, all of which I understand are potentially DANGEROUS and HAZARDOUS activities. I understand that the use of the equipment and all of these activities involve inherent risks, dangers, and rigors, associated with outdoor activities, which include the risk of BODILY INJURY AND DEATH.
  • Initials:
  • In consideration of renting the equipment, I hereby expressly and freely assume the risk of PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, and waive any and all claims against Mountain Works, Inc., its officers, directors, agents and employees, based on negligence, breach of warranty, or otherwise, which I might assert on my behalf or on behalf of my children or wards, for PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
  • Initials:
  • I have carefully read this agreement and release of liability and fully understand its contents. I am aware that I am releasing certain legal rights that I otherwise may have and I enter into this agreement on behalf of myself and/or my minor children of my own free will. My signature indicates that I have read and understood the entire agreement and agree that it is binding on me and my heirs, assigns, legal guardians, and personal representatives.
  • Initials:

  • 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 rental facility by the agreed date.
  • I understand that the sports of skiing, cross-country skiing, telemark skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, nordic, 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 or death that may result from these RECREATIONAL SNOW SPORTS, or which relate in any way to the use of this equipment.
  • I understand that the binding system cannot guarantee the user’s safety. In 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 & nordic skiing, telemark 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 further understand that the bindings have been set in accordance with the instructions provided by the manufacturer and that Mountain Works, Inc. has no further information or responsibility whatsoever regarding the determination of an appropriate setting or the circumstances under which the binding will or will not release. I am voluntarily using this equipment with full knowledge of the inherent risks and dangers involved and I freely assume any and all risks of injury, paralysis or death that may result. I agree to use this equipment at my own risk. I further understand that this equipment has not been mechanically tested for release.
  • Initials:
  • 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 that I understand how the ski-boot-binding system works, and I have been instructed in its proper use. I agree to check this RECREATIONAL SNOW SPORTS equipment before each use and that I will not use if any parts are worn, damaged, or missing.
  • I AGREE TO RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS Mountain Works, Inc., 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 and other mountaineering and outdoor activities 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.

    I have carefully read this agreement and release of liability and fully understand its contents. I am aware that this is a release of liability and a contract between myself and Mountain Works, Inc. and I sign it of my own free will.

    This agreement is governed by the applicable law of Colorado. 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. If equipment user is a minor, I verify that I have the authority to enter into this agreement on behalf of the equipment user and I agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this agreement.
