Terms + Agreements

By making a payment for the Bozeman Ice Festival® I acknowledge that this is a nonrefundable payment and refunds will not be given under any circumstances. In addition, I acknowledge that I have read and agreed to the following terms and conditions:

In Consideration of the services provided by Friends of Hyalite, DBA Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival, DBA Bozeman World Cup, its directors, officers, managers, employees, agents, volunteers, participants and all other persons or entities associated with or acting in any capacity on its behalf (collectively referred to as “BIF”), I hereby agree to release, indemnify and discharge BIF, on behalf of myself, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate and for all members of my family, including minor children, as follows:

  1. I acknowledge that rock climbing, ice climbing, mixed climbing and mountaineering in all its forms entail known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional trauma, injury, paralysis, death or damage to myself, property and/or third parties. Although BIF has taken reasonable steps to provide me with appropriate equipment and skilled guides, I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. The risks include, among other things: the hazards of traveling in uneven mountainous terrain and slips and falls; being struck by rock fall, ice fall or other objects dislodged or thrown from above; the use of climbing ropes and equipment; the forces of nature, including weather changes, and avalanche; the risk of falling off the ice, rock or mountain; the risk of altitude and cold including hypothermia, frostbite, acute mountain sickness, cerebral and pulmonary edema; my own physical condition; and the physical exertion associated with this activity. 

    Additional dangers may include the hazards of traveling on winter roads or trails; accidents or illness in remote places without access to emergency medical facilities; war, terrorism and other forces. I understand that this description of these risks is not complete and that other unanticipated inherent risks may exist. Furthermore, I acknowledge that BIF has a difficult job to perform. It seeks safety but is not infallible. It might be unaware of my or another participant’s fitness or abilities. It might misjudge the weather or other environmental conditions. It may give incomplete warnings or instructions and equipment being used might malfunction. I acknowledge that engaging in this activity may require a degree of skill and knowledge different than other activities and that I have responsibility as a participant. I acknowledge that BIF has been available to me to more fully explain the nature and physical demands of this activity and the risks, hazards, and dangers associated with this activity.
     
  2. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My participation in the activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.
     
  3. I acknowledge that BIF and its guides and representatives have complete authority and discretion as to the performance of activities and trips and may modify itineraries, trip plans or cancel a trip for any reason. I acknowledge that the success of the trip depends on cooperation of the participants with the trip leaders, organizers, and with each other. I therefore hereby voluntarily submit to the authority of BIF and its representatives for the complete duration of the Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival.
     
  4. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge and agree to indemnify and hold harmless BIF from any and all claims, demands or causes of action which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity including, but not limited to my use of BIF’s equipment or facilities,; my representations of my mental, health, fitness, and skill; and any claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of BIF.
     
  5. Should BIF or anyone acting on their behalf be required to incur attorney’s fees and costs to enforce this Agreement, I agree to reimburse them for all such fees and costs.
     
  6. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating in the trip and I agree to bear all the costs of such injuries or damage myself should I not have adequate insurance.
     
  7. I understand that BIF may contract with independent contractors to provide services on the trip or activity, including transportation, travel services and guide services. I understand that BIF has no control over and accepts no responsibility for the actions of any independent contractor involved in providing services on the trip/activity.
     
  8. By signing up, I give my permission for my name and/or picture to be used in broadcasts, telecasts, newspapers, and information purposes of BIF. By signing up I give permission for my e-mail address and mailing address to by used for marketing, mailings and information purposes of BIF.

If there is a dispute between the parties relating to this document, the party substantially prevailing will be entitled to recover all costs and expenses of any subsequent proceedings (including trial, appellate, and arbitration proceedings), including attorney fees incurred therein.

    By paying for these services, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property damaged during my participation in this activity, I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against BIF on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein. I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. If any part of this agreement is deemed unenforceable, all the parts shall be given full effect to the extent possible. I have read and understand it, and I agree to be bound by its terms.
